Can Vitex and DHEA be taken together?

I'm currently taking 75mg DHEA. Will that help to
Lower my FSH? Should Or can I add Vitex which is supposed to lower it or will both supplements work against each other?

Yes, you can take them together. Vitex doesn't really lower FSH however, it is more likely to lower prolactin. It can also act on the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. In some cases it may effect LH but this is a very individual phenomenon and is open to debate.
DHEA may lower your FSH, but in some cases it may not. If you have high LH or high DHEA, it may not be a beneficial product to use. If you are deficient in androgens, there is growing evidence that it may improve egg quality for some people, and it takes around 3 months to start working.
I hope that this answer was useful for you!
