Hi guys, so these past few days I have a little bleeding/brown discharge. This is so embarrassing but I figured I'd ask. My period wasnt suppose to come for a week when I felt like I got pain on my left side and started spotting/seeing blood/brown when I wipe. So I had an ovarian cyst and had it removed in december. I had another on my other ovary but it was much smaller and risky to take off without taking my ovary too so they left it. She said she wasnt concerned about it bursting. Could the bleeding be from the gluten free diet and my body changing? Or do you think this could be the ovary/cyst? I'm very worried because these are very bad cysts and quite rare ones. I didnt even think it could be my cyst until I started googling. Ugh worst idea ever to google stuff like that because now I'm having a panic attack thinking I'm gonna be infertile.

Do not panic, but call your GYN to discuss or schedule an appointment.     We are not doctors here, but we can offer you lots of emotional support because we know that celiac disease and anxiety are linked!

 Right that's why I still called my doctor but I just wanted to see if anyone else had experienced the same thing.  I left a message And a nurse is going to get back to me so hopefully that will provide some relief .

Celiac put me into a premature menapause and after being gluten free for a couple months I did start spotting.  I did get scared and made an appointment with my OB/GYN. In my case it was nothing and hopefully that will be the case for you also. Celiac can really mess with our reproductive systems and stress or illness can mess us up also.  I hope the nurse gets back to you soon and is able to set your mind at ease or set you up with a quick appointment.  Will keep my fingers crossed that it isn't another cyst acting up.
