DHEA / DHEA-S levels Please help
Hello,

I think I want to  start taking DHEA, but want a baseline first.  Some think serum blood tests are better, and some thinkg that saliva tests are better.  I think I'll do them both. Does anyone know if the DHEA and DHEA-S levels vary much throughout a woman's cycle?  Does it matter what day I have the blood draw? I know DHEA levels are highest in the morning, so they do change throughout the day.  Throughout the day DHEA-S levels are fairly constant.

Also, can anyone suggest other blood serum tests that would be helpful?  I have only gotten the day 3 FSH/Estradiol tests.

Thanks!

I don't have any info on DHEA, but wanted to suggest a progesterone blood test to make sure you ovulate. It should be done about 7 days after ovulation (or day 21 in a 28-day cycle). Best of luck!
