DHEA has been shown to improve egg production in poor responders. Even so, the increase was only 1 or 2 eggs, which is significant for these women. At your age, if you have not already been shown to be a poor responder or have evidence decrease ovarian reserve, it probably will not be of much help to you. Fortunately, it does not cause any side effects that you mentioned. It is not an active hormone, so why it works is still a puzzle.
