Hi all, we're looking to cycle soon to try for baby number 2. I'll be 41 in August, my antral follicle count was 14 which FS said is pretty standard but my AMH is only 4 which my FS said was a little low & a number he'd usually see in women a few years older. He didn't seem too concerned as he seems to go more by the follicle count than the AMH. We only have enough finance for one stim cycle (and any frozens if we are lucky enough) & the FS has suggested that dhea might increase our chances of some good eggies. I should say that apart from Hashimotos I don't appear to have any real fertility issues. We are doing IVF because my DH has a zero sperm count.
Has anyone used Dhea? If so how were the side effects? Would you say it was worth it? To me the side effects sound pretty full on if it doesn't help egg quality. On the other hand IVF is so gruelling that we want to give it our best shot, we realise that we were so lucky to conceive our son on our 3rd cycle last time. But we just want to give it one more shot for a sibling for him. Any feedback would be very much appreciated.
