I have been on birth control for two years now and I have had regular periods. But which birth control are you taking in which you dont have to worry about it? Is it gluten free?

I'm not a teenager, but maybe I can fill you in a bit. If you girls are in the "very thin" class of celiacs, it is possible that you do not have enough body fat to sustain a regular cycle. If you are extremely obese, you might have too much body fat. If you are very anemic, your body might be conserving nutrients by skipping cycles. There are many factors, other than hormones, that can affect your cycles. The best thing to do is to see a GYN about it. I hope you get answers.

Thank you plantime. But i am in the thin catagory of celiac disease and it is so bad w/ me. My weight has gone down at least 10 pounds. I weigh as much as my sister who is a sphomore in High school and i am a sphomore in College. But i scheduled an appt. with my GYN so that I can speak with him about it b/c I am highly concerned. but how much does your weight need to be off by in order for you not to get it? Thank you so much for you input it was a great relief. :)

What is too thin or too fat for each person depends on each person's body. What is fat for you may be just right for me, and vice versa. There is no easy answer, which is why a gyn is the best bet for this problem.

I had gained about 20 pounds a few years ago, and during this time my periods were very heavy and close. Then I intentionally began to lose weight, but when I got to a certain weight stopped dieting...this is when my periods stopped, but I continued to lose weight until I was 103 pounds (I'm 5'5). I went to the gyno and he said that I was anorexic (and I am or was not!) and told me to gain weight and everything would be fine. After having a hard time gaining weight, I have been 113 for about 8 months, and still no period. The only way I menstruate is on birth control. I have been gluten-free for 5 months, and have stopped the pill to see if a period, and nope! So its been 2 years now since I've menstruated "naturally"

At 5'5", 113 is still quite thin. My daughter is 5'3", she weighs 116, and the doc says she is right on target. Try gaining another 10 pounds and see what happens. You have a long way to go before you are overweight!

I am 5'1" and i weigh 108. When your periods begin to stop does it depend on the percentage of bodyfat or does it just matter on how much weight really is. I go to the doctor on tuesday, but i am stressing out whcih i have heard is not that great for you periods also. Thanks for the help everyone it has been a real comfort. :)

Stress will affect your cycle. So much stuff does affect, sometimes I wonder that the human race has survived! (That's supposed to be a ha-ha, btw!) It is the percentage of bodyfat, or ratio, or something like that, and it varies from woman to woman. Try to relax, things usually work out in the end!

    • Try to order from Indian Sweets and Spices  in the Silver Lake Area of Los Angles.  Also many stores in Chicago that have millet and amaranth. I make  Ragi roti  but buy the  ragi in LA good luck
    • Thanks for the responses- I was hoping that there could be another possibility. Talked to her endo who is referring us to a gastro so that she can do a biopsy. Trying to come to terms with this. I knew something wasn't right with her but was hoping for it to be a thyroid condition like her sister since we already deal with that. If celiac is in her future - I'm sure we will figure it out like we did with type 1- and looking forward to having her feel better. 
    • I do think sunscreen could be an issue for people. I realize that it is only an issue if ingested. I have very pale children. We use thick zinc oxide and waterproof sunscreen. I apply it every hour or we will burn. I have it coating my hands at the end of every pool trip. We swim daily in the summer in a Texas. There is nothing else to do when it's this hot!  It takes me multiple hand washings to get it off my hands. Often times, while at the pool or beach, we eat - chips, watermelon, nuts etc. I assume it touches the food i ingest. Ours is gluten-free. 
    • I'm sorry I don't  In fact I just looked and only found this on the uk datasheet; So maybe I was wrong!
    • I am Catholic and I totally understand. At my home parish, there is a layman who has celiac.  He has arranged to have these hosts ordered from the Benedictine sisters of Perpetual adoration. http://www.benedictinesisters.org/ At the beginning  mass, anyone who needs a gluten-free hose can take it from the main receptacle and place it in a special pix.  The priest has them and they are consecrated and with the priest.    He is handling the gluten and the gluten-free host back and forth.  But, I talked to this fellow and he said that he has not had any symptoms of cross-contamination and he is fairly sensitive.   I am celiac but really don't get any obvious symptoms so I can't tell you if cross-contamination is an issue or not   I also partake in the wine,  but I try to sit in the first or second row( to be the first to drink the wine)  to limit cross-contamination.  I make sure to be aware if the priest Saying mass puts a small piece of bread in each chalice (then I do not partake.) psawyer is right though.  Consuming either form of  eucharist is adequate and acceptable.   Often times I just take the wine.   I have considered becoming a Eucharistic minister.  This would completely eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination. If you were the first person to drink from the chalice, there would be no chance of cross-contamination at all.  Traveling is tough.   I often times abstain when I am traveling  but many parishes now offer gluten-free hosts  so I'm sure you could research it  and contact the parish ahead of time. One of my best friends has Ncgs  and he can take the gluten-free host with no trouble.   I know a priest whose nephew is celiac in central Texas. . I haven't talk to him personally about the situation (just his SIL) but I'm sure  he would be happy to talk about it if needed.  I don't know what part of Texas you're in  but let me know.
