Anyone using DHEA?

Hi. I just wanted to find out if anyone was using DHEA. It is like precursor to the hormones testosterone and estrogen. My gyno. said it would help with low libido. I quit taking it as it interfered with the estrogen I was taking. I had hot flashes and breast pain. In like two days I noticed I wasn't getting those anymore. I felt fine. So far I am doing much better except now I noticed I am not as interested in being intimate. I really hope it doesn't get much worse than it is now. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.
God Bless you all.

Anyone using DHEA?

I take DHEA. I have been doing some reading on it, and I may cut back. It interesting that you mention hot flashes with it. I have noticed some, and I wonder if the DHEA is what is making them more frequent.... I did notice my libido began to return when I started back with the DHEA, but it has been slow and not at all as good as I would like. I don't take herbal and suppliments are very interesting to me.

I was interested in it, but I was afraid of taking it because it can worsen cholesterol problems.

Does it really work for libido? What else does it do that you've actually experienced?

DHEA is some form of the what body makes before it becomes estrogen and testosterone. Testosterone is what keeps your libido strong. I didn't care for it. I probably won't take it again.

Anyone using DHEA?

I took dhea a year prior to my surgery, and I took it for about
2 weeks or so after surgery. I finally went back to my family doctor who I was working with before and she did
my blood work and my dhea level was 135, she likes it to be
between 300-400. So now I am back on it 10mg a day with
breakfast. Previously when I took dhea it did help my fatigue
and helped me handle stress much better. At one point my
blood levels went over 400 and boy oh boy I felt I could run
circles around everyone, I had way too much energy. So if you
choose to use dhea you need to work with a doctor, so they
can keep an eye on your blood levels. I know for myself it
helped me alot.
