high DHEA Sulfate and pregnancy

My husband and i have 2 kids 13 and 7. Due to his low count we havent been able to get pregnant for years. Suddenly this year we got pregnant back to back but ended in early miscarrage. i had tons of test and blood work done and the only thing they could find was extremely elevated DHEA Sulfate levels (570). I have and apt with an endocranologist but i really dont want to wait any more to try and get pregnant again. I waited until my periods became regular again and until my emotions were okay as well. Has anyone had high levels like this and got pregnant without complications? Or has anyone been advised not to get pregnant while having this problem? Thanks for your help? God Bless you and your familys!!!

Unfortunately, you need to wait. I have had 2 miscarriages (1 at 9 weeks, and the other at 13). After my second I went to endocrinologist and had blood work done. My DHEA levels were SUPER elevated after the 1st m/c (2648) and after the 2nd one (1450). I follow up with the Dr tomorrow about the levels, and hopefully for a plan of getting pregnant again. See a Dr and wait, because you will probably just lose pregnancies, that can probably be sustained with a Dr.s observations. Good luck Smile Will you let me know if you have found anything out? I see you posted this back in Feb...
