    Default Going gluten free to improve fertility

    I decided to go gluten (wheat) free about 4 weeks ago because I suspected it may have been affected my bowels, bloating etc.
    I feel like a different person
    I just bought gluten free bread, penne pasta, rice cakes and been having a bit more chocolate instead of sweet bickies lol
    Anyway, I have just been reading about how a gluten (wheat) free diet can help women conceive after years of trying.
    Has anyone had any success with this in anyway??

    Edited. For anyone reading now, I conceived 10 weeks later, 11th cycle after miscarriage

    Hi Kazza
    I have started the same this week and was going to start a similar thread!
    I heard that elizabeth from the tv show 'the view' did it and it worked for her.
    Good luck and keep me updated

    If you have celiac disease, it can cause infertility, yes. I fell pregnant 2 months after my gluten free diet.. I'm not sure if it helped or not because I never had myself tested because I'm too chicken.

    I havnt been diagnosed either. I have also read that it can cause miscarriage. It is hard to know whether it caused my mc. I guess I just thought I would try. It has made me feel so much better. No bloating, constipation/ loose bowels.
    Thankyou for sharing.
    The story from the view sounds promising

    I don't eat much gluten in general, but I got my last bfp approx 6 weeks after cutting it completely.

    Good luck

    I have coeliac disease so have been gluten free for nearly 10 years. I'm on month 7 of ttc since 4th m/c so dont think it makes any difference to me but good luck.

    Yeah, undiagnosed coeliac disease can cause infertility, m/c and still birth. They believe 80% of colieacs are undiagnosed at this point and may remain so. So on the coeliac site I belong to, a lot of people who are undiagnosed and can't conceive give it a go, after all, it isn't like it is dangerous or anything, there isn't really anything to lose.
