A Slightly Obserd Question
0

25 posts in this topic

So i have a question and im trying to think of the best way to ask it, basically what is the cemical compound that creates the lubracent from the vagina, im just trying to figure out if it contains things that are passed into the blood or anything to find out if there is a risk of glutaning from such acts that i will not mention. yes i know this is avery obserd question and i could not think of another way to ask it

Umm, since a man is gluten-free, my guess is a woman is, too.

Keep in mind that you're stomach and your gag reflex may be slightly out of whack right now... :) If it makes you sick right now, that doesn't necessarily mean that it will make you sick two months down the road. I know I have a really hard time with *clears throat* ya know.

Well, semen can contain gluten if the man is not gluten-free. I don't know about women, though.

I thought that semen didn't contain gluten... I know there was a long thread on this a while ago, but I think it may have gotten deleted. I can't find it. I thought the general concensus was that it was gluten free. Please correct me if I'm wrong because it makes me really sick.

Someone needs to find that really extensive thread that discusses this topic. I can't find it right now, and I'm pretty sure parts of it got deleted....but I think the answer is still in there somewhere....

The consensus of the previous thread was that it was gluten-free. However, that it did have protein that may bother some just because it was a protein, if I remember correctly.

Thanks Carla. Now a big question before this post gets deleted. If the protein makes me sick, is it likely that it's doing celiac-like damage?

I remember seeing a study of what seman consists of and a small percent was gluten- for a man who eats gluten.

My guess would be no since it's not gluten. You could just start off that way and finish the other. :rolleyes: That shouldn't make you sick.

Hopefully, whoever quoted the study that checked for gluten in semen can answer this question. I'm just going on memory.

Lister, you are quite the character, when are you going to get a picture of yourself on here????

It may not be doing that type damage but that doesn't mean your body isn't saying not to injest. We can have allergies to each others bodily fluids, not common, but intolerances may be possible too.

I tried googling it but didn't find anything...any biochemical engineers out there? :blink:

I know I read in cosmo once (very scientific :rolleyes: ) that what a man eats affects the flavor of the...stuff. So maybe gluten can get in?

I would have to say that the possibility of gluten being in those fluids is more probable than not... having some experience with anatomy and physiology for my studies I would be led to believe that it is possible for gluten to be in "those" fluids... and considering that "I" get ill from said fluid and I'm a very sensitive sort to minute amounts of said proteins... so personal opinion would be that said fluids do and can possibly contain trace amts. of gluten...

im not refuring to man semen, im talking about female fluids and if those are safe, from what i can tell men are not but i dont think i have to worry about that

ROFLMAO I think everyone was comparing that if men's had it, women's might, and vice versa.

I pm'd a person about 2 weeks ago with the same question here is their partial reply

"lol :-) no problem. :-) it's a good question to ask, and just means that you're thinking about all possibly sources of gluten contamination. good for you! :-)

We've had the question a few times before over the past couple years, and there doesn't seem to be any reason to believe that something as large as the gluten protein would make it through the production process for semen and seminal fluid. The organs that produce the elements of the ejaculate fluid provide only the necessary components - the sperm itself, fructose to supply energy to the sperm, and alkaline and lubricating agents (to help ensure conception).

There's no where for gluten, even if the person consuming it had a very leaky gut and it was making it out of the intestinal tract, and into the blood stream (which shouldn't be happening), there's no good way for it to get out of the bloodstream and into the fluid production glands."

I decided to believe said person. Since they know a lot, but I will not name them :)

I know you were referring to female fluid... I think all of us are aware of that... we are just comparing the two and the possibility if one has it the other does too and if one doesn't then the other wouldn't... get it?

The incredibly scientific cosmo article I was referring to earlier (it was peer reviewed, I'm sure :lol: ) also said that what the girl ate determined what she would taste like. Just a thought.

About women though, lets face it, we produce a heckuvalot less fluids then men do. In the off, and I mean VERY off chance gluten can get through, it would me a minute amount. And then you'd be consuming darn little of that minute amount.

My guess is that trial and error is your best way to go. ;)

So we think woman fluids would pass the CODEX standard for gluten free. :D;)

I agree Chelsea..I read it a few years ago, but it was in a book ( Generation S&x) by Dr. Judy. She said that women and men alike are literally what they eat. :blink:

    • Hi Beachgrl, It won't hurt anything to go gluten-free now, except the possibility of getting a diagnosis of celiac disease.  When i went gluten-free, it seemed like the initial changes were spread over about 6 weeks.  I had gut spasms for that time.  And other changes, all for the better.  Initial recovery from celiac damage can take up to 18 months, so it can be a slow thing.  Some people get better much faster of course, because we are all individuals and not identical. Going gluten-free for celiac disease is a lifetime commitment though, and some people have a hard time doing that without a diagnosis.  Even minor amounts of gluten can cause us to react, so it is best to eat a very simple diet of whole foods at first.  Avoid dairy and processed foods.  I hope it works out for you.  I know some people with Crohns disease eat gluten-free and find it helps them.  Gluten is a tough thing to digest for all people, but most don't have an immune reaction to it like celiacs do.  
    • Honestly, I would not trust the school to provide a gluten-free meal except for fruit, salads, veggies, etc. I sub in a school cafeteria and I swear everything is breaded or on bread. Utensils are shared. They're very clean but unless you have a very knowledgeable person in there, I just wouldn't chance it. I found a slim Jim type snack that says gluten-free on it. If you want to give me your email or FB account, I can send you some very valuable info on 504's though. They carry the student right through college. I kept a copy of what a friend wrote about her daughter being in a sorority and just how the 504 helped immensely. But, I would definitely get one and still be prepared to pack a lunch. All our meals are delivered frozen and we just hear them up. If your school actually fixes food, that's different. 
    • Oh, I would suggest providing gluten-free goodies (e.g. Candy) or even a frozen cupcake (kept in the teacher's freezer) in the event of a party.  My daughter's classmate is severely allergic to peanuts.  Her mom did that and Abby was never left out!  😊
    • Hi Nobody, Welcome to the forum!  I noticed you said you have been avoiding wheat products.  That's good, but are you avoiding rye and barley also?  Wheat, rye, and barley are the 3 grains that cause reactions in celiac patients.  About 10% also react to oats. If you haven't had the full celiac antibodies test panel, it might be worthwhile getting that done now.  The ttg is just a basic test and is generally followed up by an endoscopy or the full celiac panel. I wouldn't worry a lot about getting cancer.  That doesn't happen often. It is possible some of the other grains you might be eating are contaminated.  A group did a test on several off the shelf products a few years ago that would not normally be thought of as having gluten and found some actually did have low levels of gluten.  Things like corn meal for example.
