A little introduction:
I have been on the IVF board for the last year, done 4 IVF cycles, all BFN, and am out of ins. coverage for my retreivals. So here I sit, back to trying naturally. Right before my last cycle, I started DHEA (25mg). My follicle count almost doubled, but only half of those 10 had eggs in them. However, of those 5 eggs, we had 4 that fertilized and were transfered back! I really think that the DHEA helped with the quality boost. But now I'm looking at the threads on this board about the DHEA and see that the dosages are different for many people. I'm thinking that I need to up my dose to 50mg. (am then pm). I'll probably do that for 2months, then try an iui (which I do have coverage for).
How many of you have bumped up your dose? and what dose do you take and for how long? I'm worried now that I read more, that doctors don't put ladies on it for more than 6 months. I don't want hair on my face, just a baby!!!! AAARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!
