Well, this may sound retarded, and probably suspect for why my ex's have left.... They just cant handle me or something!

I love kissing my man but I am so scared to get physical when I think about what he's been eating. Is this really so bad, can it really hurt me???? Uuugh, I wanna be normal and just kiss when ever, where ever like normal people, but here I am, Right in the middle of our romantic moment ... ask him what hes eaten and if he brushed his teeth. Is that tacky or what!!! Do any of you fear this, or do this as well???

Also, this is a little off the wall and I may get in trouble for posting it but since my boyfriend eats all the normal foods... can his semen have it in there as well? Can that make me sick? (a little personal, sorry!!!)

I dont know..... This dang Celiac affects everything..... even my love life!!!

Sorry if this offends any of you but I gotta know if anyone else feels this way, or knows the truth about it.

I really hope I did not offend any of you by posting this.... I just assumed that since you are my only support group, and understand what I am going through, that maybe one of you would know... or care to inform me.

Sorry though!

Heather-

Personally am TOTALLY not offended. I know there was a topic about this very subject on the old board. (I started it hehe!! :D ) I am having trouble remembering what all was said about it. It was quite a while ago. I think that it was determined that nothing would be harmful...but I really can't remember GRRRRRRR I hate when I can't remember things.

I think the main problem would be if you are, ok pardon my terminology here...but if you are swallowing the semen. Or if you have DH and are not using condoms. That is the only way it would effect things even if it DOES carry gluten.

But I am not totally sure either way on the answer.....you might want to ask your dr to be sure and let us know what you find out.

It is really nice to hear how mature you all are about this. I was worried the moderators were gunna cut it out because of what it was about. I tried not to make it sound tacky. :P

Well, I have noticed... Condoms give me a bad reaction. I guess it could be an allergy to latex but Im not sure. Is it normal with DH to have the sensitivity and itching after using a condom? Semen as well leaves me a little itchy but I tend to do better w/o the condoms so I use OrthoEvra as a backup method (the stickies from that hurt like hell... itches and leaves blisters.... Its a no win situation!!! Im no doctor.... not a scientist.. Just a girl, with a guy trying to live a normal life.

I suppose I'll have to talk to my doctor about all of this and let you all know. Well see....

Thanks for your honesty...

Oooh Mario... Good luck on the Celiac Woman hunt in the grocery stores... LOL. :D

Heather-

It sounds to me like you might have a latex allergy if the condoms leave you itchey as well as the patches (they have latex in them also) . When you talk to the doc you might mention that.

Heather,

Do the condoms your man uses have a spermicidal lubricant? The irritation you experience may be caused by a latex sensitivity, especially since the patch also bothers you. (Or, maybe the patch's adhesive contains gluten?!) But if the condom is coated with a spermicide (like nonoxynol-9), THAT could be the culprit as well. I know that after I bought non-spermicidal condoms for my husband, I was very surprised to discover that sex with a condom didn't HAVE to leave me with a mild burning sensation inside! (I was SOOOO mortified :wub: to have to stand there scrutinizing the "family planning aids," but it turned out to be worth it after all!)

Good luck!

never thought about the glues on the stickies of my BC patch. And yes the condoms were lubed with nonoxinal-9... Is that bad? Uugh Damn this Celiac. i cant even have sex without dealing with this. ARRGH!

Good to make you al smile though! :D

Bwaaa Haaa Haaa... I try to make people smile... This is so crappy for all of us.. We need smiles, and hugs, and support. Im here for all of you.

definitely throw out the N-9. the stuff irritates a lot of people. to the best of my knowledge (and I ain't no expert on the matter), the process by which semen is produced would suggest that no gluten would become a part of it. you might consider looking into FAM (fertility awareness) as an ancillary method. it takes a non-trivial amount of work, but I like knowing my body that much better...

as for kissing... well, I think if he'd eated gluten recently, and then there was a vigorous bout of tonsil hockey, I'd be concerned about it. my husband eats a lot of bread, so I tend to forgoe "the works", as it were, until he's brushed his teeth, but general kissing I think is usually ok (assuming all crumbs are gone.... :-) )

I think we have gotten a little of course here guys, lets try to stick to the subject at hand and things to do with Celiac and being gluten-free.

Yes kissing is an issue if you are kissing someone who eats gluten. My dear hubby tries very hard to remember to brush his teeth when he gets home from work (after eating gluten at lunch) and is very conscious if he eats gluten here at home, I always stop him and ask if he has had gluten :lol: .

well I'm back and, with a great idea of having a celiac orgy at my place..ha, the mods will really love me now..  Damn could this really be, paranoid to have sex with the babes..geezzz this freakin celiac poop sucks the bone..FECK!!  ..

It amazes me how a constructive adult conversation was taken the turn to a new low with this remark. Mario consider yourself warned. Please read the board guidelines/rules.

I am wondering about girls and the lip gloss, lip stick thing. Which contain gluten and how could they affect me, if at all? The next thing is that girls secrete all over a man genital area, so would that be harmful in the same way semen could be?

Good thinking Richard...

I would assume that the same thing goes for a woman to a man. I would espically think that DH would be the big issue for skin irritation unless bodily fluids enter your mouth.

Who knows if our bodily fluids actually carry Gluten... Maybe, maybe not.... Id rather not find out the hard way.

As for the chapstick and lipgloss.... Im pretty sure most are gluten-free. I know Chapstick brand is... You may need to check it out though.

Many lipsticks do contain gluten, so I'm sure that chapsticks/lipglosses are the same way. You might want to ask your partner with the kissable lips to forgoe the lip gunk?!?

Natural Ice Chapstick is gluten-free it is made by the Mentholatum Company.

I did a search on celiac disease and kissing, sexual intercourse, semem, and bodily fluids, and did not come up with anything. <_<

Maybe no research has been done in this area? :huh:

I'm only guessing, but it would seem to me that the gluten proteins would be broken down in the digestive process, and would not enter the blood stream. Therefore it should not be present in bodily fluids? :mellow:

I would also guess that the gluten proteins would stay in the human mouth for quite a while. My advice would be to ask your mate to brush after eating. It would protect you and give your mate a very healthy smile. :D

    • Thank you, again, for the support and help! The suggestion of sleep and lots of water and discussion the next day seemed to help a lot. 
    • ironictruth, I think you are so early in your diagnosis that most test don't account for so early a diagnosis. see this thread started by you and GFinDC conclusion at the end of the thread not sure how to quote from multiple threads. Here is what GFinDC thought the study meant and I agree. Posted March 7 "It seems like another way to look at the positive DGP and negative biopsy is that DGP could be an early indicator of celiac disease.  Perhaps before much intestinal damage shows up." Here is another thread that talks about what is happening to you I believe with so many test's we often can't clearly make out what is happening often. see this link embedded in the the post as linked by squirmingitch https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27352981 on the topic of  "Seronegative celiac disease: Shedding light on an obscure clinical entity." and might be what you are experiencing from your test results. But I want to say why while you so want it to be "Celiac" and not the "C" word I think Pellagra should be considered as a differential diagnosis. I say this and repeat it to those who will listen.  Niacinamide helped me. This article on celiac.com explains why this might be so https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html and if taking a b-complex 2 to 3 a day (and Niacinamide) for a couple months greatly alleviates many of your GI problems then you also  have had pellagra co-morbid and the doctor's don't recognize it in a clinical setting today .  . .  mainly because they don't know to look for it any more today. I wrote about how to take niacinamide in my blog post about this topic so I wouldn't have to retype it several times. I want to quote from the discussions section the heart of most good research from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition research article linked in my posterboy blog thread about how to take niacinamide and why you would want too Faq. poster here again for those who want to do the deep research from their discussion section. http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/85/1/218.full "Random spot urine sampling, together with the measurement of 1-MN and 2-PYR concentrations, has been suggested as an alternative because it avoids these issues and would provide a guide to status (22). However, the ratio of these metabolites has been shown to vary according to the time after the last meal because they are sequential intermediates on the same catabolic pathway (21). This makes the ratio an intrinsically unstable variable for use in population surveys; in the present study we chose to use cutoffs previously established for the excretion of individual metabolites expressed relative to creatinine. The subjects whose excretion fell below the established cutoffs for either metabolite were considered to be deficient." A little technical but essentially we soo need b-vitamins that even if you have a test for low vitamin b-3 the amount of the b-3 in your meal (f you have not fasted before the test) can cause us to test in a low normal range thus making taking of the b-vitamin a self test of cause and effect. Did you get better after taking Niacinamide then if taking Niacinamide helped your GI problems you were low in Niacinamide. This is typically a 24 hour test and most people don't fast 24 hours before going to the doctor and will often fail this test since our body has absorbed enough from our food to help us pass the thresh hold set at the minimum level. Here is why it is good to take a b-complex with Niacin/niacinamide because it interacts with other nutrients. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3804611/ including b-6 which is one of the metabolites measured to determine a pellagra diagnosis. see this mdguidelines link that summarizes this well. http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra where they say  quoting there treatment section "Treatment consists of high oral doses of niacinamide, a form of niacin. Usually, supplements of other B-vitamins are also given because many individuals with pellagra also have low levels of B1, B2, B6, and pantothenic acid." and possibly Zinc if the other research is correct. ***** this is not medical advice just my research on the topic and experience with taking Niacinamide to treat many of my GI problems. Prousky wrote about this 15+ years ago and still people are not aware of this fact that Niacinamide treats digestive problems. http://www.yourhealthbase.com/database/niacin-treats-digestive-problems.htm and if they are are aware of it are they are slow to accept that a vitamin could help with their GI problems. the gluten free works site also has a great article on this topic. http://glutenfreeworks.com/blog/2010/06/23/niacin-vitamin-b3-deficiency-in-celiac-disease/ while it is recognized that celiac's have many of these deficiency it is not well accepted/understood today low Niacinamide alone can treat many GI problems though the research is 15+ years old .  . . still people suffer. I don't want you to have pellagra or celiac but I want you to be aware there is a another valid differential diagnosis that can make sense for many people seeking to be diagnosed as a celaic disease patient. because people with pellagra often get better very quickly it is worth a try or least some of your time to research it some more. ***again this not medical advice.  Please check with your doctor about this possibility but don't be surprised if he doesn't know much about pellagra and probably less than he does about celiac disease. Dr. Heaney talks about why this is today on his blog about the 4 D's of Pellagra and why doctor's don't recognize it today in a clinical setting. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • You should probably have your doctor run a full blood panel for celiac if you want to be tested right, followed by a endoscope and biopsy. The blood test can give false negatives, and you have to be eating gluten for at least 12 weeks daily for the test. On the ferritin levels, mine was consistently 1-3 on every test even with 2x the normal dose of iron. I found I had to take it with vitamins C supplements to boost it a bit along with managing a few other nutrients that work in combination with it. Seems mine is in part due to constant intestinal inflammation caused by my UC and bleeding ulcers.
    • Hi, I am looking for a functional medicine doctor in the Chicago area?  Any recommendations?  I have never been to one.  I have celiac disease and ulcerative colitis.  What should I expect from a functional medicine doctor?
    • Omg just saw this again, but on Facebook. Wow there are 596 comments on it, most of which are completely crazy. I almost forgot that most people know nothing about celiac disease., yet they pretend they do and shame us.
