Hormonal flucuations: Were you prescribed this dose or self medicating? It sounds like you will need a pelvic exam and hormone level evaluations. Get a transvaginal ultrasound from your GYN.

Did you tell Doc?: DHEA should always be taken under the supervision of a physician, as the hormone can interact with some prescription drugs and affect some medical conditions like diabetes, mood disorders, and estrogen-sensitive cancers. If you haven't told him/her yet, tell them now.
