After being on a gluten-free diet for almost 3 months, I actually got a real period this month! Ahh! Yes, I am rather excited because it means I am starting to have regular cycles. I thought for the longest time that my period was suppose to come on the 15th of each month...only for months and months it was so chaotic...I now know why ;) So this month, I was having cramps and felt like I was going to get my period right up to the 15th. I was so dog tired I ended up sleeping half that morning away. I wake up, use the bathroom and saw why I was so darn tired. My husband was rejoicing with me because he knew it was a good thing! Now in past months when I got some sort of period (not on a gluten-free diet) I would end up with spotting for part of the month, with what seemed like CF and then I would get three days of bleeding and then it would stop. This month, so far, I'm on day three of bleeding (when usually by now I'm done) and I know it should be about 5 days. This means I'm on my way to being regular again! Gosh, I'm so darn excited!

That's really great! I'm glad to hear that it is working for someone. Going gluten-free (it's been a year and a half for me) has done wonders for me in other areas, but my period has still not returned. I've only had it 3 times in the last 2 years. I think it may finally be time to admit that celiac disease made me hit menopause VERY early. :(

Oh Melikamaui, I'm so sorry to hear about your situation. Have you looked into PCOS? I don't know how likely that could be but, that's one of the first things people think of. Sorry if I am like one of the million that have suggested it, if it's not it. In any case, thank you for rejoicing with me!

Joyful, I totally hear you! Thankfully I never had to deal with this issue, but I can understand the feeling of excitement when your body is doing what it's supposed to be doing! :D

melikamaui - go to the dr and talk about it! Don't accept that answer just yet!
