DHEA HELP

Postby Cookie43 » Fri Aug 10, 2012 7:34 am

Hi all

I have my transfer tomorrow (5 days).... Fingers crossed. I am still on DHEA and was going to stay on it until I have an answer regarding my pregnancy test....
I am on 25 x 3 per day.

Your thoughts based on drs advice? Mine seems to think its fine....

Does DHEA improve implantation other than to say it helps the DNA align better in eggs?

I was told to stop DHEA after transfer. You don't want to take it if you could be pregnant. Thank goodness I was!
Good luck.

Congratulations on transfer Cookie! I agree with Lou....I'd stop the DHEA after transfer.

Here is one reference, but most of the things I have read suggest similarly. Of course, always follow doctor's orders, but I would be cautious here.

I will PM you soon.

YOU ARE PUPO!!!! :D :D

Thanks Lou and Margi

My doctor was vague about whether to stop it. She said that i can stop it if i like as it only helps eggs get better. When i stated that i wanted to try again if this cycle didnt work she sais "ok keep on it then". :?:

Liked the clinic but wouldnt use the doctor again. Too vague.

Honestly, if I gave such vague answers in my profession I would be out of a job :roll:
