If you’ve done IVF, your doctor might have recommended DHEA supplementation before your IVF cycle started. Or you might have come across DHEA as a way to improve egg quality in your research.
So does DHEA improve fertility? Research indicates promising results with the use of DHEA supplementation. Some doctors offer it for women with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) as indicated by low AMH and/or high FSH, premature ovarian aging (POA), poor responders to previous IVF cycles, and for women over 40 whose ovarian reserve is declining due to aging.
