I recently went gluten free about a month and a half ago. I am 27 years old and currently on the pill ("Yaz"). I am about six days late for getting my period. I took a pregnancy test today and it was negative.

Since i have never been late in my life, and since I'm probably not pregnant, the only thing I can think of is it's related to being gluten free. Has anyone had a similar experience?? Thanks!!

Ive only had 2 periods since gluten-free, but both came late. This last one was 4 days late. I am not on the pill.

It could be related to going gluten-free....environment changes can effect your period....this might be the case. The day I went gluten-free was the day I got my IUD in, so I'm really not much help though.

hello

celiac disease can cause imbalance in your hormones. Since I started my gluten-free diet, my period is coming every 15 days and my last one came in 35 days. But I never had a problem before. I am taking some herbs for this from an homeopathetic doctor but it dosn't seem to be helping at all. I am going tomorrow to visit an endocrinologist (is that the word??) and I hope he will have a better solution.

just keep in mind that celiac can cause an hormonical imbalance.it is a side effect actually. I just don't know if we can talk about hormonical problem only with one late period. maybe you should just wait and see how things will be next month.

I have been on the pill for a few years but the doctor who diagnosed me with celiac disease last march also took me off the pill the same time. this is the latest i have ever been with my period (i had it last on may 11) and still see no signs of getting...i am very concerned!!! i am planning on seeing my doctor when i get back from vacation in about 2 weeks, but i hope i get it before then because it just doesn't seem right!

I was diagnosed a year ago this coming Saturday.

I have not had a "normal" or "regular" period in over a year.

I am gluten free and now carry around FHP all the time. I stopped trying to explain this to doctors because they kept trying to have me go on some form of the pill or the ring... which I did for a while (my gi was convinced that it wasn't my intestines but my ovaries causing me all my abdominal pain). The ring led to more complications so I stopped.

I am hoping year two of gluten free will mean some more regularity... but I am doubtful.

so glad I'm not the only one having perios troubles gluten-free. I went gluten-free and my pms got horrible. then it got better....then it was mild but lasted forever. the 2nd month gluten-free I got my period twice! I spotted this month and never actually had it. I've had period problems in the past, somrtimes irregular, but I always got a regualr flow. I actually lost it for 6 months once, but that was about 7 years ago when I got too thin.

So being gluten-free definitly has to be related!!!!

Well, first off...as said before, I AM SO GLAD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE! :unsure:

I'm 27 and recently (August 2009) found out that I have Celiac Disease. I've been attempting gluten free since then. It's been somewhat difficult, and here and there I may have glutened myself (totally sucks). My last pd was on August 13, 2009. It is now December 31, 2009 and I can't figure out what happened to it! Lol.

I took 3 pregnancy tests (all negative) and even went and got the blood-test version of it. All negative. Here and there, I have cramps, but never anything comes of it. I have been using progesterone cream to see if that helps. My mother works for a Naturopathic doctor and sent me some supplements to help. I'm going to try them out, but am unsure if it will do anything.

I just hope this doesn't cause me to have infertility problems. That would be really upsetting.

Has anyone come up with any other advice? :huh:

Im 23, and have been gluten free 9 years. My periods were pretty regular in my early teens but after a few years of being gluten free I went at least 11 months with no period. They were irregular ever since that happened. I have tried all kinds of BC but they make me sick sick!! My gyno blamed it on my low weight and the fact that I don't have enough body fat to menstrate. Could that be an issue for you? I haven't put on much weight but maybe 3 pounds but the past few months I have had more regular periods. I am taking calcium and Vitamin D and I think that has really helped as well as maybe the few measly pounds I have gained. Sorry I am not much help but I know it is frustrating. I worry myself about the infertility issue down the road but hopefully I will be better by then!

    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!  
    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? Did my bit of sport last night which was a great relief to be free of any illness-related thoughts for an hour or two; didn't think I'd have the energy at the start but soon got going and was OK so that's a plus I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning...
      http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/50920-sores-on-scalp/ one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
