    Default DHEA any new developments?

    Any new developments with DHEA? I'm pretty sure my RE will advise against it and I'm too old to wait for results of clinical trials to say yeah or nay... Just curious if this is something I can take on my own and does it interfere with follistim, clomid, or femara?

    Nothing new with DHEA that I'm aware of....

    Don't take anything without discussing it first with your fertility specialist.

    I took it for almost two months before my second IUI. My first IUI ended in a miscarriage at 8 weeks (I'm 41, so old eggs). I am now pregnant with IUI #2. It did not interfere with my follistim. I am hoping my body holds onto this pregnancy and if it does I am not sure I can attribute it to the DHEA but it doesn't hurt.

    Also I produced more follicles this time and they were also a little larger when I triggered with HCG.

    Good luck

    Congrats Willowfly, I'm curious, how much DHEA were you taking?

    Fingers crossed this pregnancy sticks!!

    I was taking 75 mg which is the recommended dose to help boost ovarian function. I hope this one is a good egg too!!!
