Does anyone here have any experience in hormone replacement? I plan on going to get bloodwork to check my hormones since getting on DHEA and then stopping. DHEA is a precursor to a hormone that converts into testosterone and DHT (I'll put a picture below of a graph showing what it does). DHEA is over the counter sold and is basically a hormone that allows your body to make more of its own hormones from it (like T and estrogen or whatever your body needs) Many bodybuilders say its basically useless but once I got on it I noticed a massive difference in everything. I felt much more energy through the day and just felt amazing.
My beard got thicker, I started talking louder.
Then I started noticing my hair was continuing to shed after 6 months of it so I got off. I also developed back acne. Now I notice myself having more brain fog, less energy, less masculine feeling all around. I feel more emotional but less angry. I feel low testosterone. The one side effect I've never experienced though is ED or trouble building muscle. Its always been quite the opposite. This leads me to believe I may or may not have low testosterone because I responded so strongly to DHEA. I just ordered Tongkat Ali which is proven to increase Testosterone naturally. Hopefully this doesnt cause the hairloss since I still have good hair in my 30s. Im still writing this long ass post like im a woman, jesus christ. This wouldnt happen on the DHEA XD
