Women, is it possible that celiac disease can cause my period to come late?? Several months back I had a normal period two months in a row. Then by the third month it had come 6 days late and just as my period started I got flu like symptoms. Vomitting, body chills a fever the works. I was stuck in bed for a week. And just as quickly as it came, it stopped the moment my period ended. I had my suspitions of it stemming from celiac disease, so I was keeping track of it.

Again two months my period came right on time. Now, I am in my third month again and my period is 6 days late. It's even taking longer to get here. I still don't have it. I did bleed during ovulation. The blood was mixed in with it. I am afraid that if I am late like this again I might get that same exact flu symptoms. I might add I am NEVER late. I always come every 28 days. I did nothing out of the ordinary to have my period be so late and no I am not under any stress or even pregnant. So, do any other women experience this and does any one know if celiac disease can cause all of these problems?

I don't know about the celiac connection, but I can relate to periods being wacky. Before gluten free my periods came like clockwork every 28 days. I did have horrible pms symptoms that my husband said I was not fit to be around. Since gluten free the severe mood swings of pms have resolved (thank goodness), but my periods never come the same time. For awhile they would come every 26 days, I have had a few late, and recently the last one came on day 25. I am really thinking that my hormones are going a little haywire. I will be 37 next month and my mom thinks it could be perimenopause. Who knows. :huh:

I do not think it could be related to celiac-although I am sure we will continue to learn about the ramifications of the disease. I believe they are still researching any effects on hormone levels. Either way I would recommend seeing your gynecologist so they could do an exam and perhaps test hormone levels.

I hope you feel better soon.

It might be time to get your thyroid checked. Celiac has a connection to auto-immune thyroid diseases. Thyroid problems will cause your cycle to change/become irregular. Are you having any other symptoms that you have forgotten about? Dry skin, weight loss/gain, more or less sleep, any changes in your hair, the list of symptoms is very long.

I have the same exact problem, i've been late a lot and a few days before i get terrible flu like symptoms and usually once my period is done I feel a lot better. I get a low grade fever, sometime vomit, get very tired, chills, and I have been having blood sugar issues as well. it sure isnt fun to spend 1-2 weeks out of the month not feeling well. Sorry I dont have any info to offer but if you find out whats going on I would appreciate a reply.

Thank you

    • Drop the dairy and if your eating any drop oats. Enzymes to digest lactose are produced by the tips of the villi, so your going to have issues with til they heal. Remove for a few months at least change over to a nut based milk, some hard cheeses might still be fine but you might want to change over to vegan/dairy free versions of it for a while then try reintroducing them.  Fruits yeah large amounts of sugar are more of a issue then the fiber and bother are going to cause bloating, gas, etc. Try eating more dark green leafy veggies, smaller amounts of fruit and eating nuts, seeds, etc in there to up fiber without the sugar and get some fats in there that way, If you eat meats stews, soups in large pots are going to be your friend for awhile easy, simple, cheap, and can be done in batches, and portioned off for a week at a time. Check out the 101 thread for more info, I think some of our EU members can help you more with finding products that I can, same with supplements. Cross contamination and chances your still eating gluten unknowingly are highly possible there is a HUGE learning curve refer to hte 101 thread for more info. That covers the basics. welcome to the club? https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful. 
    • I think for adults who are disabled or have really low incomes, they should be allowed to keep their Rx.  But anyone else who is an adult and has a job, they should pay their own way.  There are so many options available in the UK now and their gluten-free options are really good.  You have better bread than we do in the States and the cost in many instances is lower than it is here.
    • Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.  Chips, not so much, as many chips are already gluten free so it would not apply.  Those would be your safest bet as you probably will be audited for doing this.  That's how the IRS works. If there are big changes regarding deductions, that will raise a red flag and your chances of being audited go up.  You sound like you keep good records so don't sweat it if you will gain a benefit in income from doing so.  You do realize that you have to have a minimum of 10% of your adjusted gross income to even begin to deduct anything?
    • Hey guys The topic title is actually misleading a little, I had an endoscopy in december, was told it was a little inflamed and they were pretty sure it wasnt celiacs, just a minor gluten intolerance.  Long story short, its now July, had to cancel appointments due to moving to london. tried ringing for results for a long time. Nothing. Last week, find out I am celiac with some eroded Villi.....from December Anyway. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks. I have had problems with kidneys aching, stomach pains, bladder pains, all sorts. before hand, I cut the gluten down, but was not entirely gluten free. I was told that it was early stages.    Gluten Free I am not finding so hard, but I am waking up EVERY morning with stomach pains still. Or bladder, or whatever. Ill go back to the docs soon. Ive been having a lot of fruit and I am wondering if the fibre is not letting my stomach settle. Also that dairy products might be causing the issue. I was basically trying to absorb some nutrients to get rid of my hurrendous exhaustion, I cant be malabsorbing as I still have Villi.    Any advice, anything would be great
