Anyone familiar with DHEA? I’ve been reading about as a final option for older women. I can’t say I like being considered older, but I guess at 35 when it comes to the baby game, I am. I understand DHEA is a male hormone that’s available over the counter. And some women have taken it (exactly why I’m not sure) and the result has been a drastic lowering of the follical stimulating hormones. That’s my problem, my fsh is too high. My ovaries are prematurely acting as if I were older. I asked my doctor about it, and she says that even though DHEA is otc she hopes whe will let me take the medication with her supervision, and I think I will. Does anyone have any more to say about DHEA, good or bad? I think it’s worth a try before I consider more drastic measures such as ivf.

Yes, of course, you can still use your own eggs if you qualify for DHEA. Why else would you want to take it? You, however, should not take it on your own. Speak to your fertility doctor about it first or, alternatively, you can go online to reproductive genetics institute and request a free consultation.
Dosages vary with weight, but most of our patients receive 25mg TID. And we never use over the counter DHEA.
Best regards

Default DHEA , normal FSH, low AFC

Dr., if you see this message, please inform me of the following:

Do you prescribe DHEA to patients over 40 who do not have elevated FSH but a low antral follicle count? For instance, I just turned 41, (have had 2 IVF's with one chemical pregnancy), my FSH is always 7 or lower on day 3. However, I have only a 6-7 antral follicle count.

Is it a must that your patients have elevated FSH to get DHEA treatment? Or would someone such as I qualify?

Thanks,
Angela

I am only 32 but the doctor says I have ovaries that test much older , whatever that means. We have elected to try dhea. I'm not sure what to expect. After I take it for a while I will be tested again.
so I guess we'll see.

Hey, from what i've been hearing, you don't have anything to lose. Dhea is sold over the counter, so it's probably darn safe, and after all the recent talk about it helping fertility patients, it's worth a try. I will looking to see how you make out, because I'm still hopeful of working out my situation naturally, but if that fails, I might be trying it too.
