Research indicates that DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, may offer fresh hope to women undergoing fertility.
As a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist, I have seen many women come to my clinic, with the simple plea to help them have a baby.
Many of them have tried for a long time to conceive but could be facing problems due to one or several factors. Although many women think that the fault lies with them, it is just as likely that the cause of their inability to conceive lies in their partner, or that there is just no known cause at all.
Fertility problems are actually far more common than most people realise, as the demands of modern life make it difficult for many couples to easily conceive. True infertility, however, is defined as the inability to conceive after a year of trying.
