Egg freezing

Mr Akande is an expert in ovarian reserve assessment and discussion of options for fertility preservation such as egg freezing otherwise known as oocyte cryopreservation.

DHEA

DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a required for the production of sex hormones oestrogen and testosterone. It is sometimes used in women with a low or poor ovarian reserve.

What are the potential benefits of taking DHEA in fertility treatment?

Some research suggests that taking DHEA may improve the way ovaries respond to stimulation. This may result in more eggs being produced for IVF treatment. As such, some women with a poor ovarian reserve may benefit from taking DHEA.

There is still more research to do in this area, as the current evidence is inconclusive. For this reason we do not routinely recommend taking DHEA.

If treatment with DHEA is appropriate in your circumstances Valentine Akande will discuss with you and how to take it.
