I have always had low libido, and a wife of DH's friend is taking DHEA. He said it has worked wonders for her sex life and outlook on life, so dh wants me to start it.<br><br>
I'm leery of it - does anyone have any info about it?<br><br>
I have adrenal fatigue & take pregnenolone, which is the first hormone our bodies create from cholesterol. Pregnenolone is then converted by the body into DHEA, cortisol & the sex hormones; testosterone, estrogen & progesterone.<br><br>
DHEA is an androgen, meaning it can sometimes cause masculinizing side effects. My doctor said that he gives women pregnenolone & men DHEA because he rarely sees masculine side effects from pregnenolone in women, but often sees them with DHEA.
