For the second month in a row (gluten free 3 months) my cycle seems to have snuck up on me early. This isn't a problem because even though I have been very regular for at least 3 years now, it was usually longish, like 32 days. What it tells me is that being gluten free has been changing something. The best thing for me has been the near disappearance of sometimes severe pre-menstrual symptoms. I would feel the peak of manic anxiety and panic attacks near ovulation and almost two weeks of severe brain fog and the fight with feelings of alternating aggression/depression culminating in one sad negative night just before I finally found relief when my period started.

Tonight, while talking with my husband on the phone (he is out of town) I got a little weepy and felt a few moments of negativity. After I got off the phone I discovered I had started my period early. So a few moments of 'pms' was the only sign that my period was imminent.

Is it too much to hope that this isn't a fluke? Has anyone else experienced relief from PMDD going gluten free?
