Another Question About Women Troubles....

Recommended Posts

So, I've been gluten-free since Nov or 2007. My life is sooo much better, not completely back to normal, but much closer.

Anyway, every month, I've noticed that before/around the time I ovulate, I get horribly constipated. So, I'm having pain from ovulation, but then constipation on top of that. So, I tried googling this, but I didn't find much. I wonder if anyone else experiences this, or can explain why? And help to possibly alleviate it in the future...

Thanks!

Digestive problems related to mensturation can be from endometriosis on the intestines...this is what I have. Basically tissue from the endometrium (lining) of the uterus grows outside it. If it's really bad, there's a simple surgery for it, but I'm just on birth control and doing OK most of the time.

Good luck, see your OB/GYN!


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.
