Celiac And Ovarian Cysts

Recommended Posts

I just spent some time in the ER due to a ruptured cyst. I was curious about two things. First, are celiac disease and ovarian cysts at all related to each other? Secondly, if I can't have gluten, is the birth control pill safe to have? Any answers would be much appreciated! You can email at im_a_christ_lover@yahoo.com.

Hi Laura,

I'm not sure if ovarian cysts and celiac are related, but you can have BC pills as long as they are gluten free. I am on Portia, and as far as I know, Yaz is also gluten free.

Hope thats helps!

I'm not sure if they're related either. My cousin thought she had celiac disease about a year ago...ended up BEING an ovarian cyst (18 1/2 lbs...one of the largest recorded!!). It was scary. But she and her mom both have a wheat allergy (that gives them a skin rash...my thoughts are still on celiac, but I suppose I'm biased).

ovary cysts are common. They come and go. I had one and then after awhile it went away. I was told this was common too.

My sister has one now that is big though-softballsize. They are trying to shrink it with BC pills.

If you find out anything please post. My sister would never get tested for celiac, not unless she was dying. She loves her beer, bread, etc too much.
