In Topic: No Period

16 March 2013 - 07:00 AM

Hi people,

I have been trying to find some info regarding amenorhea and celiacs, and havent been overly successful...

i havent had my period for an entire year, i have been tested for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome which i dont have thankfully. the only other possibility the docs have given me is that i am underweight or have a low body fat percentage. I am currently 58kgs and 175cm tall so im actually not that underweight.

i have been on the gluten-free diet for about 3 weeks now and am starting to acknowledge a whole bunch of symptoms that may be related to celiac disease and was wondering if anyone can shed some light on the existence of amenorrhea in those who are celiac...

Ta,

Hi there,

I didn't have my period for over 6 years (I am currently 33 years old).  I decided to adopt a wheat free/gluten free lifestyle about 2 months ago and finally got my period a few days ago.  I have been to 7 or 8 doctors, several ultrasounds, MRIs, been put on two different birth control pills etc.  Giving up wheat was the only thing that changed things for me.
