Yes. However much less than the recommended 75mg/day that’s actually way too much than most of us need and can start to impact quality. I took 20mg/day split in between two 10mg doses. My amh went from .3 in March 2021 to 1.8 in March 2022. I had been on the dhea for about 24 weeks. I think you need at least 16 weeks to start to see meaningful benefits. I would also recommend taking extra vitamin d if you are not already.

Yep the 25 3x/day is the standard all the REs recommend but It’s way too much for most of us. The biggest thing with dhea is time unfortunately. Give yourselves at least three months to see a difference.

I just read that fertility drugs increase ovarian cancer risk. Ladies who went through IVF/egg freezing, how did you go about it? After breast cancer scare a year ago, I am dreading anything that can expose me to cancer. I am mid-30s, single F and want to have biological kids one day. I know freezing eggs can give me some piece but on the other hand I’m afraid of increasing my cancer risk🙏🏻 (posted this on women’s bowl as well)

People talk lots of seeking therapy but I’m not sure where I can find it considering I’m unemployed. My savings have gone down considerably and my outlook for the future is bleak with the recession worsening.
