Our expert says:
Diandrone or DHEA has been used to try and develop better follicular stimulation in patients with poor response. Most of the studies have shown that it has not been proven to make a difference in improving ones outcome. However there is no major side effects and because you had such a poor response earlier you may as well give it a try and see if it makes a difference in your particular case. The other option to improve your chances is to use a higher dose stimulatory medication and maybe a different group of medication to stimulate the ovary. Your concern about premenstrual spotting may not be relevant but it is important to see your fertility specialist for a scan and have an ultra sound done before commencing your next IVF cycle.
