Today I have posted in the “Ask the Experts” section of this blog a study conducted in Greece indicating tremendous success for women with POF treated with DHEA. Though small, the study may be something for women struggling with egg quality to consider reading, and discussing, with their healthcare practitioner.
As with most supplements, DHEA also comes with risks. Please do not begin any DHEA regimen without first talking to your doctor.

DHEA proved to be significantly effective in the treatment of POF in the first five cases of an ongoing study. All patients showed an improved gonadotrophin hormonal profile and, more importantly, all achieved pregnancy.
Since the first patient with premature ovarian failure (POF) referred to our Centre was successfully treated with dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) giving birth to a healthy baby, all subsequent POF patients followed the same treatment protocol. Receiving very encouraging results (FSH level was decreased in all first five patients and all achieved pregnancy) it was decided to study the DHEA action in depth for a reasonable length of time and a larger number of patients in order to confirm the effectiveness of this particular therapeutic regime.
