What is Pregnenolone
Frequently Asked Questions
The answer is an absolute yes. Though it all depends if you are low on one or both androgen hormones. While dhea and pregnenolone are often underrated, they should not be forgotten when diagnosing hormonal imbalances. Patients are often able to use less testosterone when concurrently using dhea and pregnenolone therapy. We see better results with the combination of these hormones as opposed to testosterone therapy alone. In addition, a decrease or increase in dhea and pregnenolone means a decrease or increase in free testosterone serum and every other sex hormone in your body. The goal is to increase free testosterone while keeping total testosterone as low as possible as this reduces any chances of side effects.
Transdermal and oral administration are both effective delivery methods. Blood work results usually show the same increase in hormone serum whether orally or transdermally. However, transdermal delivery bypasses the metabolism, delivering it directly to the bloodstream via the skin, but can come with the risk of spreading it to your significant other or kids. Oral administration is still a very effective delivery form and prevents any spreading of the hormone to your loved ones. Our preferred route of delivery is oral because we avoid any risk of spreading to our loved ones.
