Fertility & Pregnancy Outcomes
Untreated celiac disease has been associated with menstrual abnormalities and pregnancy complications. However, studies are inconsistent in this area.
Our study at Jefferson is a retrospective observational study that aims to clarify celiac patients' experiences with fertility and pregnancy outcomes. We are asking patients from our Celiac Center and members of national celiac awareness organizations to complete an anonymous online survey. We ask questions about menstruation, menopause, fertility and pregnancy. While we do have some preliminary results, we are still asking people to respond to the survey.
We are happy to hear from all women about their experiences both with and without celiac disease.
