Hi Everyone,

I'm in a bit of a situation... :ph34r: and I'm wondering if anyone knows whether or not the morning-after-pill, Plan B is gluten free?? I can't find out anywhere.... Any information as soon as possible would be huge.

Thanks!

I am looking it up, but my advice is that it is better to be glutenated than go through an abortion later.

starches are clearly labeled as potato and corn

" The inactive ingredients present are colloidal silicon dioxide, potato starch, gelatin, magnesium stearate, talc, corn starch, and lactose monohydrate."

If in doubt, call your pharmacist, too.

I checked the inactive ingredient list ( http://www.go2planb.com/PDF/PlanBPI.pdf ) and nothing looks problematic. I would go the pharmacy, ask the pharmacist (not the technician who hands you the drugs) to also look over the ingredients, but it looks like it is safe.

Good Luck!

It's better to be glutened than to have an unwanted pregnancy/child.

The morning after pill is a chemically induced early abortion.

Actually it's not; it prevents conception from occuring.

We're straying from the original question. She asked for information related to gluten intolerance, not for us to judge her or the product in question. Let's keep to the original topic, please.

This is not the place to debate the ethics of the morning-after pill. We are not here to judge.

Sorry, I wasn't debating the ethics, only the mechanism. I know how controversial topics can go around here ... so I certainly did not mean to start a debate on the ethics.

Actually if you go directly to plan b's website, they tell you it will not terminate a pregnancy if pregnancy has already occurred and that it has no effect on the fetus.

You know you are responding to people who posted 5 years ago. Most of these people aren't on here any longer nor is this the place to debate the ethics of "Plan B"

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
