  1. Reaction To Band-aids?

    Just found out I have Celiac in August of 2009 and had NEVER had a reaction to bandaids/adhesive tape until I because gluten-free. I had the reaction in November. My skin was just red and itchy! Crazy how you start taking away gluten, and you start finding new things your body reacts to.
  2. Missed Period

    Well, first off...as said before, I AM SO GLAD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE! I'm 27 and recently (August 2009) found out that I have Celiac Disease. I've been attempting gluten free since then. It's been somewhat difficult, and here and there I may have glutened myself (totally sucks). My last pd was on August 13, 2009. It is now December 31, 2009 and I can't figure out what happened to it! Lol. I took 3 pregnancy tests (all negative) and even went and got the blood-test version of it. All negative. Here and there, I have cramps, but never anything comes of it. I have been using progesterone cream to see if that helps. My mother works for a Naturopathic doctor and sent me some supplements to help. I'm going to try them out, but am unsure if it will do anything. I just hope this doesn't cause me to have infertility problems. That would be really upsetting. Has anyone come up with any other advice?
