DHEA and progesterone?

I am just started taking DHEA and previously been told I have a luteal phase defect - I have cyclogest pessaries 200mg. Is it safe to take both together after ovulation?

Yes, DHEA should not affect the luteal phase. DHEA should be taken cautiously but it may improve ovarian response.
