My gyno just switched my birth control AGAIN trying to get the hormone levels right, as my body is basically going into menopause from not having enough estrogen...and I'm 16!! And the endometriosis is not as controled as it could be. But I'm not sure if it's gluten-free...it's not on the gluten-free drug list, and the ingredients list maltodextrin, which in drugs, is not required to be labeled and can go either way. Plus it's chewable (wtf?!?! why would you need chewable birth control?? lol I digress...but hopefully it will have the right levels) and I have found that chewable meds often have gluten.

So before I call the company, has anybody been there? Thanks!

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.
