As part of an antiaging program (when 40, two years ago) I started DHEA taking DHEA 50mg supplements daily at that time my testosterone levels were considered normal for the age.

I have had rest periods and casually after 3 months of taking it again I stopped three weeks ago, and my libido was a bit down

I am fit exercise 3-4 days a week.

consulted a Doctor and I seems that my testosterone level are way below normal.

Its there a possiblity that the DHEA supplementation has had any effect on testosterone levels?
