Reaction From Sex?

Recommended Posts

:o I think this is a stretch but has anyone had any symptoms after having sex with a non gluten free partner? I've been seeing my boyfriend since May of this year. Everything was going great but last month it seemed like i was being glutened the whole month. My stomach was swollen and painfull the whole month and not to mention the watery itchy bumps i used to get on the palms of my hands are back. I will admit to cheating on foods from time to time but honestly i didn't cheat last month. I'm wondering if his fluids are what is bothering my system. :o

Yeah, I think it's a stretch. ;)

You might want to revisit your cheating.

Is he brushing/flossing before you start swapping spit? (Sorry, I know that's blunt, but then so is what you asked! ;) )

You might also want to investigate any toiletries he uses.


Dx Celiac 08/22/08

Iron Deficient Anemia / Blood Clotting Disorder / Severe Vit D Deficiency / Low Cortisol / Progesterone/Testosterone Deficient

Persisting Sx: bouts of extreme fatigue, dry itchy skin, dry gritty eyes, bouts of brain fog and terrible short term memory, hair loss, hypoglycemic tendencies, low body temps, low BP, cold hands and feet

UPDATE: Began BHRT 9/22/10 and it made a world of difference, for about 2 weeks. Hair loss stopped almost completely, energy levels way up and felt 19 again! Going back for a booster this week....

I dont think it is a stretch if he eats gluten and then you kiss him. New relationships often involve A LOT of kissing. :) He could also be using toiletries with oats/gluten that you lick off.....not trying to be crude.....but if it is done right......this could happen. ;)


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

Hmmm, are gluten eaters better in bed or something? I got no experience with that I'm afraid. Such a sad tail. Have you checked with your doctor though? Could also just be a coincidence of timing with some other ugly bugly disease.

Seems to me there was a story last year about a college girl w/a peanut allergy who died when her boyfriend, who had eaten a peanut butter cup or something earlier, kissed her. (Poor kids!!)

My husband still eats gluten, usually away from home, and I must admit I'm wondering whether the toothbrushing/rinsing/facewashing is enough to keep me safe.

I think that peanut kiss story turned out to be wrong (unless there were multiple cases). I found this story online:

I think we need a poll here! :rolleyes:

Okay, for this I have valuable experience.......DH was not diagnosed with celiac until last summer - -therefore, I knew him (in the biblical sense :lol: ) for eighteen years as a gluten-eater, and for the past year as a gluten-free performer.

No difference. Great both ways........ :ph34r::D

Boy, thanks for sharing that!! I never heard the follow up. But I especially appreciated this part:

"A recent study shows at the end of an hour, there is no allergen left in the saliva."

Good news!!

Gluten Free for 3 years.

An Aunt came to me and told me she Celiac Disease. (Had not spoken to her in 8 years) She said I should be tested and I did, however I had never heard of it before then.

I suffered with severe depression since 14. Took two kinds of meds that didnt help me at alll. After Celiac, I take no meds at all and feel great.

I am a new woman and life has changed. :)
