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:

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      after nearly 6 years gluten free, i still have some balance/anxiety/neuro issues.  they're the last to leave the symptom party, i'm afraid.  i attribute this to the years and years i went undiagnosed and untreated (25 years~! )  i don't have much faith in the medical field's intelligence or in their ethics. funny story:  my obgyn bill had a charge on it that my insurance denied - $25.00 for 'smoking cessation intermediate 5-8 min'  WHAAAAAT?!  (the doctor said it would be a good idea if i quit smoking.  i'm like 'no shit, sherlock')  called the billing office and told them i'm not paying it.  WHY?  1.  do you have any idea how much money i would owe my dad????!!!  2.  i don't smoke with my vagina.  they took off the charge
    • 9 year Old going through testing
      because they make more $$ treating symptoms   every time i see the new 'miracle' pills for 'ibs-c' and 'ibs-d' it just makes me crazy.  ibs is just a symptom..........  as are all these other things that can be reversed just by changing the diet.  but shhhh let's not talk about it, keep the patient ill and miserable, and keep that $$ rolling in.   and to leave a child ill and in pain is just deplorable.  i'm sorry for him.  go git 'em, mama!
    • Do I have Celiac?
      My IgG is 37.6.  B12, D3, and iron deficient.  Hashimoto's thyroid.  Do I have Celiac?  
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Not really. She just got out of the hospital for the 2nd time. Upon discharge, they said she will continue to vomit. Makes it very hard to go to school.

      You are misunderstanding the term hidden gluten.  A food item, of which probiotics are not covered under, can legitimately have trace amounts of gluten and still be gluten free.  There is no test that can test down to zero, regardless of what you hear.  Most testing generally tests down to 5ppm and the vast majority........  most likely 99% of Celiac's, will not have an autoimmune reaction to the food.  I am an extremely sensitive, diagnosed Celiac and I eat some processed foods, from reputable companies, and I am doing phenomenal, 11 years gluten-free.  Lots and lots of other people have this experience also. This is not an example of hidden gluten. There can be food ingredients that may be made from a gluten component that may not be as easy to distinguish but if you learn label reading as you should, with time you will be easily able to identify what is safe or something that is questionable. Can it be daunting at first to learn all this new information?  Absolutely, but if you can read, you can learn. There are also many probiotics which are completely safe.  I have been taking them for 30 years and have never been glutened once from them.  The news reports (for what they are worth now) say that there was gluten discovered in probiotics.  That does not mean all probiotics are suspect. You can find out from the Gluten Free Watchdog which ones failed and which ones did not, then make your choice to buy.  Supplements are not covered under the food laws but again.....read those labels and check with manufacturers!

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
