Bleeding?

Hi guys, so these past few days I have a little bleeding/brown discharge. This is so embarrassing but I figured I'd ask. My period wasnt suppose to come for a week when I felt like I got pain on my left side and started spotting/seeing blood/brown when I wipe. So I had an ovarian cyst and had it removed in december. I had another on my other ovary but it was much smaller and risky to take off without taking my ovary too so they left it. She said she wasnt concerned about it bursting. Could the bleeding be from the gluten free diet and my body changing? Or do you think this could be the ovary/cyst? I'm very worried because these are very bad cysts and quite rare ones. I didnt even think it could be my cyst until I started googling. Ugh worst idea ever to google stuff like that because now I'm having a panic attack thinking I'm gonna be infertile.

Do not panic, but call your GYN to discuss or schedule an appointment.     We are not doctors here, but we can offer you lots of emotional support because we know that celiac disease and anxiety are linked!

 Right that's why I still called my doctor but I just wanted to see if anyone else had experienced the same thing.  I left a message And a nurse is going to get back to me so hopefully that will provide some relief .

Celiac put me into a premature menapause and after being gluten free for a couple months I did start spotting.  I did get scared and made an appointment with my OB/GYN. In my case it was nothing and hopefully that will be the case for you also. Celiac can really mess with our reproductive systems and stress or illness can mess us up also.  I hope the nurse gets back to you soon and is able to set your mind at ease or set you up with a quick appointment.  Will keep my fingers crossed that it isn't another cyst acting up.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
