So i have a question and im trying to think of the best way to ask it, basically what is the cemical compound that creates the lubracent from the vagina, im just trying to figure out if it contains things that are passed into the blood or anything to find out if there is a risk of glutaning from such acts that i will not mention. yes i know this is avery obserd question and i could not think of another way to ask it

Umm, since a man is gluten-free, my guess is a woman is, too.

Keep in mind that you're stomach and your gag reflex may be slightly out of whack right now... :) If it makes you sick right now, that doesn't necessarily mean that it will make you sick two months down the road. I know I have a really hard time with *clears throat* ya know.

Well, semen can contain gluten if the man is not gluten-free. I don't know about women, though.

I thought that semen didn't contain gluten... I know there was a long thread on this a while ago, but I think it may have gotten deleted. I can't find it. I thought the general concensus was that it was gluten free. Please correct me if I'm wrong because it makes me really sick.

Someone needs to find that really extensive thread that discusses this topic. I can't find it right now, and I'm pretty sure parts of it got deleted....but I think the answer is still in there somewhere....

The consensus of the previous thread was that it was gluten-free. However, that it did have protein that may bother some just because it was a protein, if I remember correctly.

Thanks Carla. Now a big question before this post gets deleted. If the protein makes me sick, is it likely that it's doing celiac-like damage?

I remember seeing a study of what seman consists of and a small percent was gluten- for a man who eats gluten.

My guess would be no since it's not gluten. You could just start off that way and finish the other. :rolleyes: That shouldn't make you sick.

Hopefully, whoever quoted the study that checked for gluten in semen can answer this question. I'm just going on memory.

Lister, you are quite the character, when are you going to get a picture of yourself on here????

It may not be doing that type damage but that doesn't mean your body isn't saying not to injest. We can have allergies to each others bodily fluids, not common, but intolerances may be possible too.

I tried googling it but didn't find anything...any biochemical engineers out there? :blink:

I know I read in cosmo once (very scientific :rolleyes: ) that what a man eats affects the flavor of the...stuff. So maybe gluten can get in?

I would have to say that the possibility of gluten being in those fluids is more probable than not... having some experience with anatomy and physiology for my studies I would be led to believe that it is possible for gluten to be in "those" fluids... and considering that "I" get ill from said fluid and I'm a very sensitive sort to minute amounts of said proteins... so personal opinion would be that said fluids do and can possibly contain trace amts. of gluten...

im not refuring to man semen, im talking about female fluids and if those are safe, from what i can tell men are not but i dont think i have to worry about that

ROFLMAO I think everyone was comparing that if men's had it, women's might, and vice versa.

I pm'd a person about 2 weeks ago with the same question here is their partial reply

"lol :-) no problem. :-) it's a good question to ask, and just means that you're thinking about all possibly sources of gluten contamination. good for you! :-)

We've had the question a few times before over the past couple years, and there doesn't seem to be any reason to believe that something as large as the gluten protein would make it through the production process for semen and seminal fluid. The organs that produce the elements of the ejaculate fluid provide only the necessary components - the sperm itself, fructose to supply energy to the sperm, and alkaline and lubricating agents (to help ensure conception).

There's no where for gluten, even if the person consuming it had a very leaky gut and it was making it out of the intestinal tract, and into the blood stream (which shouldn't be happening), there's no good way for it to get out of the bloodstream and into the fluid production glands."

I decided to believe said person. Since they know a lot, but I will not name them :)

I know you were referring to female fluid... I think all of us are aware of that... we are just comparing the two and the possibility if one has it the other does too and if one doesn't then the other wouldn't... get it?

The incredibly scientific cosmo article I was referring to earlier (it was peer reviewed, I'm sure :lol: ) also said that what the girl ate determined what she would taste like. Just a thought.

About women though, lets face it, we produce a heckuvalot less fluids then men do. In the off, and I mean VERY off chance gluten can get through, it would me a minute amount. And then you'd be consuming darn little of that minute amount.

My guess is that trial and error is your best way to go. ;)

So we think woman fluids would pass the CODEX standard for gluten free. :D;)

I agree Chelsea..I read it a few years ago, but it was in a book ( Generation S&x) by Dr. Judy. She said that women and men alike are literally what they eat. :blink:

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
