    Yes, I have [had] fertility problems because of it.. We saw an 'expert' but they couldn't figure out what was going on.. we don't want to do the IVF because to us, if it's meant to be, it'll happen... I've lost one officially (meaning I had a positive on the test) and I know I lost at least 3 others (unofficially - no positive; but I just knew I was) and during all those times (over 19 years) I was gluten intolerant and I didn't even know it. I just recently (2 years ago; with my last pregnancy - the one I had the positive) I found out that I am... and yes, it can cause problems getting pregnant and even staying pregnant. Even before they found out what the problem was, they took out my gallbladder.. that helped some (it was problematic), but with me, the damage is/was pretty bad.. Just recently (2 months) have been completely gluten free. When I was told, I wasn't sure where to turn... at the time, I was a junk food-aholic! I had to have me those brownies!!... cakes, crap like that; basically, just that, crap. Things women love during those hormone peaks.. you know... my chocolate!! anyway... lol... during those times, I would feel like crap.. wore down, wore out and put away wet type of thing... so my doctor told me "stop the gluten.. and after a bit, maybe months, maybe it'll happen.. if the damage isn't too great" so I've been off gluten for 2 months.. still going strong (even though I sometimes miss what my husband eats (bastard! lol) ice cream, cake.. (my sons birthday was recently so...) but anyway, I'm taking my vitamins (folic acid, iron..etc) just in case I do end up pregnant.. and other vitamins from the foods I can't eat... I haven't eaten Gluten for these 2 months, I feel sooooo much better... and just the other night, I took a drink of something that had malt in it and immediately, even before I found out it did, my mouth was like "GROSS!".. and then I got sick... so I think my body is trying to tell me "thank you so much for keeping me clean.. I don't need that crap!" anyway, good luck! stay Gluten Free... and if it's meant to be, it'll happen!
