DHEA supplements?

My latest IVF attempt failed - I got only three follicles, 2 eggs and 2 embryos. I transferred after two months due to my endometrium being only 6mm. My Dr has now given me DHEA. I don't have my right tube, and my left tube is clipped. I'm 33 years old. Will I have successful IVF? What should I do?

There is a reasonable chance to see an increased ovarian response following DHEA support of 3-9months.  Your FSH level would suggest a different treatment protocol may give you a better outcome.
