    I know all this stuff is a new and emerging field but....

    What do you do (generally) if based on labs and everything pregnenolone is not flowing down to progesterone or cortisol and is just going to DHEA-S. Have you seen this happen?

    Its a huge challenge for me on TRT with the backfillng approach. I dont even take DHEA cause im fine there but I still have all these blockages in going to progesterone and cortisol with preg. I don't mean CAH but I mean for some reason with ample Pregnenolone by blood test it doesnt translate to ample PROG and CORT.
