I took DHEA for...

I took DHEA for about 2 days. Noticed I was getting headaches and stopped. Now my period is late only by a day but that’s unusual for me.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

I did get some nausea too.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I’m 38. And read that DHEA can help with fertility.

I am on no other meds. I take a fish oil supplement 1000mg a day
800mcg of folic acid
And 1 Vit D3 supplement (5000 IU?) a dayI read to take 75mg a day of the DHEA. I tried that. My head was killing me. So I stopped. I don’t want to take it anymore. But i’m Worried about my cycle. I can be a bit anxious. So I wanted to check.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
