So I was diagnosed with Celiac mid Oct. this past year. Been on the diet since.

At the end of Nov. my period was a week late. After just recently breaking up with my boyfriend, worried myself sick that I was pregnant, eventhough the likelihood of that was low, we used a condom. I never kept the greatest track of my period before, but always had an idea of when it should come. I was so worried, I took two home preg. tests, both negative. Four days later, my period still had not showed. I went to my dr. where she gave me a blood preg. test. Negative. Two days later got my period. Ever since, my periods were on schedule again.

But now, my last period was Jan. 28th!!! I'm well over a week past due, and worried now that something is goin on. This time, thank god, theres not even a second guess in my mind that I'm pregnant, no sexual activity since my break up. However this doesn't seem normal. Is it the diet? I got tested at the same time for Celiac for anemia, and my iron levels were normal.

I tried finding posts on here in the archive that related. Unfortunately all I could find were posts talking about the girl's periods being irregular or absent before going gluten-free, not the other way around. So whats going on, now that I'm gluten-free and my periods are all screwy.

Any advice, words of comfort, similar experiences would be much appreciated. thanks.

If you just went gluten free back in October, it may take a while to become regulatragain. Plus, if you're under any stress, that will cause it to be late as well (I just got mine after being 2 weeks late-and I'm usually regular!).

Good luck-

Nadia

Accidental gluten ingestion is one of the few things that will cause me to be late in my cycle.

I agree with what the other two have said. Stress, accidental ingestion of gluten, recovery from glutenous diet, they can all affect your cycle. Just a note: don't count on a condom to prevent pregnancy! My third child was conceived while a condom and the Today Sponge were being used!

With me my period comes also later, when I accidentaly ingested gluten, but it depends on when in the cycle it happens. If it happens in the first view days, then the period mostly is in time. If it's in the last view days, the period comes later. Also stress can cause it to come later. And breaking up with your boyfriend sure was stress, too.

Hugs, Stef

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      ...and CoQ10 deficiencies can occur in those taking statin drugs.  Really important to monitor that if you are on statins.

      I guess you must have to be a member then. I don't know because I am a member. It doesn't cost anything & I've never gotten any junk mail from them or anything unpleasant.  Gee, I didn't even think about that when I posted the link. OOPS! Let me know if you need me to copy & paste it because I will if you want.

      Hey, do you have to be a member of Medscape to see the article?  I could not get in pass the sign-in page.  
    • Starting out
      Ugh!  Run from that doctor.  Are you located on Mars?  Kidding aside, here's the deal.  If you go gluten free just to test it out and you feel good, then you might think you have a gluten issue.   A few months or a year go by and you realize that this is HARD.  REALLY HARD.  So, you start to cheat.  You get sloppy.  You start sharing a toaster.  Your symptoms come back, but you don't worry about it or maybe you start to get violently ill.  Symptoms so different from your old symptoms that you think you must have something else.  (You could be the type of person who makes a decision and sticks with it.  But those are rare folks.)   I could go on with more stories, but type in lymphoma in our forum's search box.  Look at member's who were misdirected by their physicians and who have had celiac disease all along.  Now they are dealing with cancer.   It is not my intent to scare you into thinking you have cancer.  The odds of you having it are slim and none.  I am trying to scare you into finding another doctor who really CARES about you and follows a normal standard level of care (like reading currant medical journals or checking Dr. Google, like my ER neighbor doctor does because he can not know everything!) It's just a simple blood test.  So easy.  If negative, then give the diet a try!
    • "Celiac disease prevents absorption of iron"
      Well, you are no longer anemic, so that's great!  As long as you are healed, you should be able to absorb iron easily.   Of course, there could be other issues that would prevent you from absorbing iron as villi damage can occur from many things other than celiac disease.   Want to know for sure where you stand?  Ask your doctor to check your iron and iron store levels the next time you have a physical.

      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!
