Fertility problems

Most women with treated coeliac disease do not seem to have a greater risk of fertility problems than women without coeliac disease. However, undiagnosed coeliac disease may be an underlying cause of unexplained subfertility.

Testing for coeliac disease should be considered in people with unexplained subfertility and in women with recurrent miscarriage.
