At the moment i am pretty devastated following our 2nd IVF fail.
It will be a while before we can go again due to lack of funds so may as well use this time to try and get my eggs in better shape, as with 1st cycle we got 2 eggs and only 1 fertilised and this last cycle 6 eggs and only 1 fertilised which took 2 days instead of one so was a late developer.
Seems we will be doing ICSI next cycle even though dh's swimmers are great due to my crappy eggs. My AMH is 2.5 and im 31yrs old so not great. Anyone else been in similar situation and used DHEA to improve matters?
The issue with my eggs only came about after the 1st cycle when the AMH test was done as original reason for needing IVF was due to me losing both tubes after 2 ectopic pregnancies in 2010 so in shock my issues go so much further and feeling very desperate now so will look into anything
I've been taking it for two months.
After our 4th failed IVF in Aug I started taking it and fell pg naturally
Sadly I had MC but that was due to chromosonal abnormalities. So I would give it a go if I was you!
I was on DHEA 3 months before my first IVF treatment. My consultant told me how much to take and when. I too had a low amh levels and eggs weren't growing enough each month to be fertalised. Can't say it was just the DHEA but currently 8 weeks pregnant after IVF. I know my consultant is very keen on DHEA but u should only take when prescribed as it can make matters worse if not taken correctly x
From what I was told from people on here and reading up bits on DHEA you should only take the recommended dosage if any as prescribed because it could even lower the AMH levels. Or it might affect other areas if your not prescribed with the correct dosaged.
I am not trying to put you off taking it but it's the advice I took.
I was on 75mg for 3 months. He then lowered when he thought was necessary and then upped it again when he thought it was best.
I feel pregnant after IVF and then he changed the dosage again.
You do whatever you think is best but I just dont want you to affect your levels more xx
