DHEA - during IVF/pregnancy

HI.  i am 49 and went through early menapause at 32.  i have been on HRT and taking DHEA supplements since then.  I am undergoing IVF with a donor egg.  i have read the studies about use of DHEA for helping with improving egg quality.  some also show impreovements in reducing miscarriages.  wondering if anyone who had taken DHEA to help with their own eggs/IVF stayed on DHEA through their entire pregnancy...or if most people stop it once pregnant?

I don't know the answer to your question but I'm 50 and doing the same thing but had to stop taking DHEA as it made my hair fall out.  How are you taking yours?  Does it make your hair fall out?  Thanks
