DHEA questions

Postby momoftreasures » Fri Apr 26, 2013 6:30 pm

Does anyone have experience with DHEA? Wondering if it changed your cycles at all. CM? Side effects? I experimented with it slightly but wondering if changes are due to that or not.

Did you put yourself on it or did you get your levels checked and have a doctor recommend?

Good to know. Doctors are pretty low on my list these days and I just want to do what I feel is right without a doctor making me second guess myself!

only take the DHEA if your FSH is high... mine is 17.98 and I am sure that is what is keeping me from a BFP
