Ok Here's A Girlie Question, But I Gotta Know!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been on a gluten free diet since November 2009. I have been on birth control for ten years, and have NEVER missed a period. I have always started on the same day, and ended on the same day. This Monday came and went and here I am Friday, still nothing!! I took a pregnancy test and it was negative...Does this gluten free diet cause missed periods ever?? I haven't been any more stressed then normal, and I didn't miss any pills. I am so confused and trying to figure out why. Thanks for your help!!

Well, some people don't get their period on the pill. But if you have been on the same pill for years, so that may not be your case. I think anything new can effect your periods, I would recommend continuing to take the pill and then if you don't get a period next month, then call the doctor. Also even one little spot counts as a period when you are on the pill. Good Luck!

It might just be too early to get a positive test. I would test again in a couple of days.

Your cycle could be changing. Every few years I go late on my period and my cycle changes.

I'd say ask your doctor what to do - not us (no offense to us...). I'd hate for you to be pregnant and continuing to take the pill.

After I went gluten free I didn't have a period for 2 months. I went to my doctor and she said it was probably my body trying to adjust?? It seems to be the new norm for me....I have one every 2 months. Good Luck!!

I totally agree with this!! I've had many early false negative home pregnancy tests in my day! See below-LOL!

I am a month overdue for my period right now. Had a false pregnancy test yesterday. With my other 2 pregnancies I came up positive before I missed my period with the early result test so I think that maybe I'm just adjusting. I've been gluten free for about 2 months now.

I"m having similar problems with irregularity after starting a gluten free diet, even though I'm on the pill. I've been on the pill for years and my periods were always regular, but last month it came one week early (lasted for two weeks) and my PMS was way worse than usual. This month I've started cramping two weeks before my period is due. Can this be the new diet affecting my hormones/the birth control? I"m so confused and worried about why I'm cramping earlier than usual!

I've been gluten-free for about 11 months and my cycles are all over the place. The last 4 or 5 times I got really sick during my period, with severe intestinal inflammation and all the usual gluten symptoms minus the gluten. Last week I started noticing more inflammation, increasing every day, started my period, but haven't been sick. Last month I really only lost my appetite and felt lethargic, but not knocked-flat ill. What's weird this month (is it safe to assume everyone reading this thread is in the same boat and that there is no such thing as TMI??) is that it was really heavy (I mean 2-3 pads and tampons per day and quite a few large clots) for two days and then on day three (today) nothing. I mean nothing. This diet will keep you on your toes; Never a dull month... er, day :P

I am no expert, although I do know that any change in diet and or exercise could change your menstral cycle. Just saying. I would wait a few more days and see a doctor if you still dont know.

funny this topic is back up today (to me, anyway :) ) i have been 8 months gluten-free and in the beginning, i was still having gut issues. after six months, not so much. have been having more good days than bad. i am 48 and expecting menopause and since going gluten-free my periods have gotten closer together. i am not on any kind of birth control or hormones of any sort. i mean, i used to could set a clock: 28 days (plus or minus 24 hours) but lately i have been 23-28 days and then saturday i got it and at only 21 days! i thought as i got closer to menopause my periods were supposed to get less frequent.

haha and every month (because of pms/cramping/etc) i go crazy trying to figure out what i have glutened myself with because the symptoms are annoyed/migraine/D/digestive tract failure like before i was gluten-free careful/fatigue <but feels like somebody ran over me with a truck sooooooooooo tired/wiped out. didn't expect it in TWENTY ONE DAYS. rawrrrrrrr :(
