-Started TTC 4 yrs ago on my 30th bday. Unexplained infertility. 7 IVFs with my own eggs, 3 more IVFs with either donor eggs, surrogate or both.
-4 miscarriages including a devastating one at 20 weeks.
-Dx with Celiac Disease via bloodwork, endoscopy, biopsies, gene panel, January, 2010.
-Was told this was why we lost our son at 20 weeks; told to go gluten free asap and try again in 6 months.
-Very active in the infertility world, have lobbied in DC twice for infertility healh insurance, adoption tax credit, etc.
-celiac disease testing will now be my new crusade. If fertility docs test for other autoimmune diseases in their workups, WHY are they not testing for this??

Trying to understand and spread the word about the correlation between infertility and Celiac Disease. I plan to tell all my doctors, contact everyone I can, preach it on my blog, tell whoever will listen- TEST for celiac disease if you are not getting pregnant.
