trying to conceive for past 5 years, is DHEA helpful?

User Profile
I have been trying to conceive for past 5 years with no luck. Had 2 failed IUIs. My Age is 32, AMH levels are 0.53. FSH levels are 9.36. Can I get success in IVF with my own eggs? Also what help Ovigyn D tablet can provide in my case? I have read on net about DHEA being helpful, please advise for my case.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the IUI’s have failed, consider discussing with your treating gynecologist/infertility specialist about options of IVF and ICSI (which give better success results). Getting started on hormonal supplements (HCG injections, progesterone etc) around the time of implantation can help. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet with foods rich in zinc content to help with better maturation of eggs and sperms. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/infertility specialist and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
