DHEA is Quite Harmless, Really...

by Kelton
(Salt Lake City, Utah, USA)



Truth be told, I take DHEA only because of the scientifically demonstrated potential in anti-aging. I actually notice very little, if any effect from taking it.

Perhaps it makes my body leaner, but I can't be sure. Maybe it improves bone mass and strength and athletic performance, but I cannot really tell.

I've taken ordinary daily doses of the supplement purchased from my local grocery stores for many years. Maybe I could experience dramatic effects from inadvisable doses, but since I'm a prudent user like ninety-nine percent of every other user, I experience no noticeable effects.

DHEA doesn't make people aggressive or massive or cause heart failure. In normal doses it has hardly any noticeable effect, positive or negative.

So why is DHEA under attack? Because it shares some vague chemical similarities to hormones already banned? That's a reactionary and unwise approach.

Go find a real reason for people to stop taking it other than it being a possible waste of money, o.k?

In the meantime, hands off DHEA, all ignorant politicians!

DHEA - A Gift Worth it's Weight in Gold

by Mindy
(Zephyrhills, FL)


I have been on hormone therapy prescribed by my physician for about 2 years now.

Just recently I added bio-identical hormones to my diet and discovered how much better I felt when I did that.

I started to use DHEA in addition to the doctor prescribed estrogen/progesterone medication. I feel much more "womanlike" than I had been feeling.

I had a total hysteroctomy and was having all kinds of trouble trying to cope with the sudden "change" I was going through.

I had no womanly desires like I used to have, and I was experiencing hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and was having abnormal sleeping times.

The doctor prescribed hormone therapy and it helped some, but I still wasn't feeling quite right. I talked to one of my girlfriends and she suggested that I try to balance it all out with DHEA.

What a difference it made. I felt like a woman again!!! I couldn't believe how much better it made me feel in just a few short days.

I would recommend DHEA to all women who are under doctor prescribed hormone therapy. You'll be glad you tried it.

My Pregnancy and DHEA

by Emily
(Slidell, Louisiana, USA)


My name is Emily and I am from Slidell, Louisiana in the United States. Mine eventually became a success story, but did not start out that way.

First I was diagnosed with Unexplained Infertility, a condition that is as frustrating in many ways as not knowing what is wrong because it's so vague.

This was an issue because my husband and I love children and really wanted to have a child of our own.

We found a fertility center that did further testing and narrowed my issue down. Eventually I did go on DHEA for five months and at last had a successful pregnancy with PGD (Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis)and IVF(In Vitro Fertilization.

I have learned so much about infertility in the last two years, and I encourage anyone out there who has this problem to keep trying and never give up.

My Experience With DHEA

by Lisa
(Arnold, Missouri, USA)


I started using DHEA after reading about it on a local website. I have to say that my experience has been pretty positive.

After about a month, I can honestly say I have noticed increased energy, which I feel has contributed to my being able to increase my exercise, and lose a little bit of weight.

I also have to note that I have been a long time sufferer of depression, and recently I have noticed a decrease in episodes.

I am unsure if this is due to the increase in energy or simply a benefit of the DHEA. Either way I have never felt better and continue to receive compliments on my appearance.

I will continue with the DHEA at a dosage of 50 mg per day.

DHEA not helpful

by Chevolleau
(Toronto)

My GP suggested DHEA cream to improve my sleep, libido and mild irritibility related to menopause. After 6 months of trying to find the dosage right for me, here are the results:


Yes, it initially improves your sleep, well-being and libido somewhat, but it is a steroid, so it also brought aggression in a big way, facial hair, and destroyed my sleep completely.

It would be nice if you could take this drug indefinitely in a small dosage IF it does not cause the unwanted side effects, but that is not possible.

To stop the aggression, I had to stop taking it, so then I had to deal with the drop in well-being. You do not want to have to deal with that; over the years approaching menopuse your well being declines almost imperceptibly, then you bump it back up with DHEA -and then have to deal with the return DROP over a week or two... it is a very black period of your life.

My Recommendation:
DO NOT LET ANYONE TALK YOU INTO TAKING THIS DRUG. Only an endocrinologist is qualified to prescribe this drug. There are momentary 'feel-good' moments, then you have to cope with stopping.

PLEASE save yourself the agony, unhappiness, discomfort...
