Survey- How Long After Going Gluten Free Did You Get Pregnant?
0

8 posts in this topic

How long after going gluten free were you able to get pregnant? I would love to hear from Celiacs, Gluten Intolerant & others... I tested negative for Celiac but after going gluten free for 4 weeks & then eating normal again I have been nauseous for over a week now so I'm assuming my issue is probably gluten or wheat intolerance.

I would love to hear your stories. I would love to get pregnant. I have always had VERY irregular periods unless I was on birth control. I went off birth control in January & they have been irregular again since then. I'm hoping that the gluten free diet will help this.

Definetely , sounds like gluten intolerence. There are test which can test for intolenrence.

There are other tests available that test for gluten sensitivity.

Lame Advertisement has an at home test for gluten and 19 ther foods. Enterolab also has a stool test for gluten.

Huh for some reason , The cmputer inserted "lame adversitsement" for the name of the lab I had put there. I am not in any way associated with the lab. In fact it took me a year searching on th net to find that particular at home test , which is affordable. Well, if you like that information . send me and email at sachetrose2002 at yahoo. It an be life changing

Thanks for the info on the gluten testing. I can't afford anymore testing right now. I have had a ton done of the last 5 years & my health insurance skyrocketed in June so I can't afford to have anything else done. That's why I am just doing this on my own now.

Hi, I waited two years after going gluten free before getting pregnant. My periods are pretty regular (25-28 days) with the occasional really long cycle (35-42 days). I did a blood test to ensure my antibodies were in the normal range first. Once they were, the doctor said I should be just fine. We got pregnant on the second cycle of trying. Best of luck!

Unfortunately, going gluten free doesn't necessarily regulate cycles--sometimes they are just off for different reasons. My cycles are 42-59 days long if I ovulate at all, and I've been gluten free for over 5 years now.

I also have PCOS so getting pregnant is not easy. I sometimes could go a year w/ out a period, But since going Gluten free my peroids have been alittle better w/ less cramps and pain. My husband and I are going to try again next year. Hoping that after a good year we will have better luck :D

Hello. We tried for about a year before I knew I had Celiac Disease without any luck. After being diagnosed I waited around 6 months and began trying again. It took 17mths after going gluten free. I don't believe I could of gotten pregnant if I had of continued on eating gluten. My body was so sick, my periods were very irregular. After going gluten free everything gchanged for the better. I am now on my 7th week of pregnancy, and feeling good, except for the "all day sickness" I hope that it gets better after the the 1st trimester. Good Luck

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
