Charting-Changes After Going Gluten Free Possible?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Me and my husband started trying to conceive February of 09. I had two miscarriage one in September and one in October. About 6 weeks ago I found out that I am gluten intolerant and so I removed gluten out of my diet and in turn started eating a lot healthier than I used to. I'm curious though whether going gluten free can change your morning temperatures? I've been charting since we started but the past couple months I stopped charting. This cycle I started temping again to see when AF would be on her way at cycle day 25. AF has never showed later than cycle day 34(usually shows before day 30) and I am now on day 36 with no signs of her showing. I am having all of my pregnancy symptoms but am still getting negatives.

Does anyone know if going gluten free can change your temperature levels at all?

This is my current chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/25abed

But according to that it almost looks as if my ovulation was celiac disease 28 however my coverline is usually around 97.1 so that seems impossible. For a chart for me it looks more like it's gone triphasic. I'm just frustrated with these negatives and I've almost beat the length of my second pregnancy cycle.

If this was confusing, sorry! It's hard to explain the complexity of my cycle this month...but I'm really only curious whether or not going gluten free could cause your monthly temps to be higher than before, since my pre O temps are usually below 97 degrees.

I would think its possible. I started charting in January so that I'd have some practise at charting by the time we started TTC. I also was eating gluten in Jan as I needed to be tested for Celiacs (long story, but the biopsy came back positive). My pre O temps have always been below 97 degrees. I've only been gluten free for a few weeks so I don't know if enough time has passed to affect my pre O temps. But my naturopathic doctor did say that eating gluten could be affecting my thyroid (which blood tests showed that its lazy) which can definitely affect pre O temps. Taking Charge of Your Fertility mentions having your thyroid checked if your pre O temps are below 97.

So, perhaps eating gluten was affecting your thyroid causing the pre O temps to be low. Or eating gluten could have been affecting the pre O temps without causing issues with your thyroid.

I think going gluten free really did change my temps. Very odd. But every month my temps have been higher, even hitting the 98's which is rare for me. I just found out I am pregnant on Monday!! My positive tests are darker than they ever were with my two last pregnancies, and this pregnancy is giving me very high temps which I think is a good sign for me! So excited, I really do think that gluten was causing me issues with my last pregnancies. It is the only thing that could explain it really... My temps never hit 98 with my last pregnancies and today my temp was 98.4 and my positive tests are darker than they ever were with my last pregnancies and I am taking them earlier than before.
