Thanks a bunch for the support and prayers for me and hubby! I do have an egg quality issue and only 1 ovary my tests showed that I had little oppurtunity left, but I know God is in control. I had three issues come up with the past two miscarriages: I have the clotting issue( baby asprin helps this but I will likely need heparin therapy next time), my thyroid was way out of whack both times ( my meds have been readjusted again), and I will need to be on progestrone as soon as I conceive again( have the inserts on hand).... Plus hubby had factors too, he is on fish oil, a good mens multivitamin, and he is taking fertilaid for men now too.....I will most likely go on DHEA since I know I have an issue... but the RE I was seeing was pushing IVF which we just do not have the money for....and our insurnace covers none of it.... I truly believe in miracles but I also believe we have to do our part and take care of our eggs/ his sperm and our bodies. So we are trying to be positive and do what we can. I also have read about relfexology and acupunture working for some older women. So looking into that as well. Thanks for the info on the DHEA, plan to buy it and try next cycle.....

I also read to buy the pharmacy brand, not over the counter, because OTC, they put extra fillers in there.....but I heard nothing but good things about DHEA and helping in the quality of our eggs left.....

Hi Kiki,
Is there a specific name to the pharmacy brand? I'm really interested in this as a few studies said it lowers the chance of chromosomal abnormalities!
Thanks!
