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!

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam,  I second everything that Cyclinglady has told you, but just to let you know that I be me intolerant to dairy before my diagnosis for coeliac disease. The 2npositive tests, were they both blood tests or one blood test and one endoscopy? If you are waiting to see them in the Endocsopy department, I think they will want to do one if you haven't had one already and in order to do this and get the correct result, you must eat gluten for at least 6 weeks before you can have the test done, because it is the gluten that causes the auto-immune result.  I too have a thyroid disorder, which was diagnosed long before I had been diagnosed with coeliacs disease. Also a couple of years after diagnosis I became intolerant to soya and xanthan gum and E464 (hydroxypropl methyl cellulose) which is quite often found in gluten free baking produce, including bread. A food diary is a good start, which has also been suggested, but don't jump the gun if you haven't had an endoscopy with biopsies yet. It is still possible to carry on with gluten free and dairy free diet if you are vegetarian, but it makes it a little harder and don't forget dairy free milk is usually fortified with vitamins and minerals.
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anemia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20183157 Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard American..British..you name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
