You need to do better on your diet :) and be sure that when you are having D that you also use a barrier method to prevent an unwanted pregancy. Better to be safe than sorry as they say. If you are taking the pill for a medical reason other than contraception you should talk to your doctor about this issue.

I'm aware of my diet and what I should and shouldn't be doing Thank you very much.... I wasn't looking for any judgement. Just curious about something was all. I hope the rest of the boards aren't like this.

Kelly, please look at your PMs (personal messages). I do think think that poster was trying to be helpful.

Hi!

Sorry you feel a bit judged, please don't give up on this forum because of it. I am also on the pill and asked my doctor about the exact same question. Apparently, if you are having diarrhea or vomiting it might affect how you absorb the pill. Mainly celiacs effects the way you absorb fats and a lot of vitamins are absorbed through fats and therefor absorption of those vitamins is affected .

Basically unless you have diarrhea or vomiting you should be fine. If you are still worried, ask your doctor about the contraceptive implant (think its called implanon) which is a small implant in your arm it last three years and works the same way as the pill except that t is absorbed directly into your blood stream and is therefor not affected by any stomach symptoms you might have.

Good luck, don't get disheartened :)

Gluten Free Since mid March 2008

As well as gluten I can't eat: cantaloupe, honeydew, dairy and most nuts and seeds. I also seem to have a problem with a lot of fruits and vegetables but only when they are raw.

Wasn't judging, sorry you took it that way and were offended.
