No Period

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I didn't get a period this month for the first time in my entire life..they are usually very bad, even on the pill.

It's been about 6 weeks since I went gluten-free, so I'm wondering if this is why.

I took a pregnancy test last night and it said negative (on the 4th day of missed period, so it should have been accurate). So, I doubt I am pregnant..plus, I've been on the pill with no missed pills, etc. I have no pregnancy symptoms.

anyone else miss their period after going gluten-free? Maybe my body is in shock from the diet changes? Any thoughts?

Right after I went glutenfree I experienced something like this:

Cycle on regular date

next one 2 weeks later

next one 4 weeks later

next one 2 weeks later

Then it went to being normal every 4 weeks.

Mine didn't really screw up like that...it comes 28-35 days somewhere within that range and it never ceases to miss. But that has happened to people I know and it can be from weight loss and other things associated with celiac. If it keeps up I would ask your doctor about it though.

One of the symptoms of celiac disease is missed periods because of malnutrition (Kind of like when girls miss periods when they are anorexic). If you have only been on the diet for 6 weeks then your intestines probably haven't healed resulting in malabsorption of essential vitamins and minerals in you intestin, which may cause you to miss a few periods. Ask your doctor if it's bothering you.

With me it was the other way around. After years of getting it late it was in time for the first time after starting the gluten-free diet. The second time it was in time too and the third time it was late for about 7 days.

Hugs, Stef

After going gluten-free, I had one or two periods, then never had another one. I spot periodically (usually once every two or three months), but no period. Since I am 46, I hope it stays this way! Most of the women in my family have to have hysterectomies by this age, so I consider myself blessed.
