DHEA supplement and blood clots?


Hi all,

Was anyone diagnosed with a blood clot tendency (such as antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, or mutation in the genes regulating blood clotting) and also used the DHEA supplements? Did you consult a physician about it?

I was advised to use DHEA due to the DOR diagnosis (advanced age: 42, high FSH, low AMH, decent AFC: 7-11). However, it seems that I may have APA syndrome, so I am wondering if DHEA may be contraindicated. The docs say they are not aware of the connection, however the Mayo clinic web site (DHEA: Safety - MayoClinic.com) cites that individuals with a history of blood clots or hypercoagulability should avoid them.

Thanks for your feedback.
