Worried about DHEA side effects on the fetus

Patient : I mistakenly took DHEA 75 mg for the first two and a half months of pregnancy as I tested very late for pregnancy. I was prescribed DHEA 75 mg. to improve egg quality. Even though I missed my periods for 3 months, I only took the UPT when I was 13 weeks which came back positive. I had consumed DHEA 75 mg. for almost 2 and a half months by then. I am really worried now about the testosterone effects on the fetus. I have no pregnancy problems so far and everything is normal as per the scan reports. Please advise.
