Were you on DHEA while taking dexamethasone?


#1

The studies I have read about DHEA have women taking it until their beta test. However, I have read that in many IVF cycles, you also take dexamethasone, which prevents the excess secretion of male hormones from the adrenal gland. At face value, it would seem that the two would counteract each other.

Does your doctor have you taking the DHEA while you are taking dexamethasone until egg retrieval?

Yes. My doctor says to stay on DHEA the whole time. I think I have been on it for a year straight now and I do take dex with stims.

Good luck.
