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.

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
