  1. Thanks everyone for writing. My husband takes a slew of vitamins and amino acids to help his sperm count, including esther C. I chart my temps and cervical mucus, use the clear blue ovulation monitor, and we've tried baby dancing every day during ovulation, every other day, etc. It's been a long two years! At this point, if the IUI doesn't work, we'll try anything. Is there any chance that gluten is passed thru his sperm?
  2. I just did my 1st IUI/clomid cycle this month (yesterday IUI) and I had a terrible stomach ache and bloating from the trigger injection (Hcg) Otherwise not gluten type effects. It's interesting, I never thought to ask about it.
  3. Hi, I'm a newbie to this board. I've been trying to conceive (ttc) for 2 years and finally went to a reproductive endo for help in November. This weekend we did our 1st Clomid/IUI and am now in the stressful 2 week wait part of the cycle. I found out I had Celiac 3 1/2 years ago and have been stricly gluten-free ever since. Is there anything special I should do to help our chances of conceiving this cycle? We can't do IVF because of the expense, and I think this procedure will cost about $500. We've already spent about $500 for labwork and tests. Our insurance covers next to nothing. I really don't want to go thru this over and over again. I never thought I'd be infertile. Actually, my hubby has low sperm and low morphology. I know this is a pregnancy forum, but I couldn't find one for those of us ttc. The fertility site I am on does not have many gluten-free members and I feel it's a big issue and could use the support. They just don't understand. Anyway, any stories or advice on how ttc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Lori
  4. Sorry you are so sick. Instead of Saltines, try Glutino prezels. I just discovered them (they were a xmas gift!!) and I'm addicted. I am not pregnant, but we're trying. Everyone I know eats Saltines during pregnancy, but if/when I get pregnant, you can bet I'll be carryng around those pretzels! BTW, I found them at Whole Foods market, or I'm sure you can get them online.
  5. Hi, I'm new here too, however I am pretty active at fertilityfriend.com where I chart my temps and get help trying to conceive. There are about 4 of us Gluten Free people there, however I am the only one with Celiac that I know of. I went in November to a Reproductive Endo and just took Clomid and did IUI (artif insem) I think there are some challenges due to the years of eating foods that made me sick and not knowing it. It's good that you've been gluten-free for such a long time. Good luck with your test results and please feel free to ask me any questions about them as I just went thru it! Good Luck.
