Expectations Met

Citation:   Jai. "Expectations Met: An Experience with DHEA (exp72098)". Jun 24, 2008.

25 mg oral DHEA (daily)


I had read a little bit here and there about the effects of DHEA on testosterone production. I am 28 years old and I just didn't feel right about my libido. I'd had my testosterone tested and it was 300. Normal values for men my age are 300-1000. So, I felt that I needed a boost. After about 3 days of taking 25 mg with my lunch, I have noticed MARKED improvement! I have slightly more energy, I sleep better, and for me more importantly, I have began having things happen that only happened when I was younger. I've noticed a much improved libido and almost as if the DHEA has awakened my sexual senses again. I had a few slight headaches but they went away without much fight. I have also had a little increase in acne but overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking to re-vitalize themselves sexually and in general.
