After a frustrating discussion with dh last night, I have discovered that he does not want to take any extraordinary measures in attempt to achieve a pregnancy (IVF, IUI, diagnostic surgery etc...).  With that, I will not be doing hcg injections as my doctor has suggested (this was recommended due to elevated FSH levels of 12.5).

 

Do any of you have personal experience with taking over the counter DHEA alone or in combination with IVF?  Here are a couple of articles about it:

TIA!

The CHR website is great. I'm a big fan of DHEA and have used it lately. I have seen a distinct difference from when I'm on it and when I'm not. I'm most intrigued by the decrease in miscarriages from it (as you can imagine). Hopefully, it gives me my take home baby! Good luck! smile.gif

But wait, could it really be true?
