Center for Human Reproduction Patient Reports Excellent Response with DHEA

A top fertility center's innovative use of DHEA to increase female fertility brings new hope to their patients - and its proven effectiveness increases DHEA's popularity worldwide.

2010-08-12
NEW YORK, NY, August 12, 2010 (Press-News.org) Following over five years of research on the hormone DHEA as a fertility-enhancing supplement in women with diminished ovarian reserve, New York -based Center for Human Reproduction reports yet another remarkable patient response, based on a very personal patient testimonial.

DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is a mild male hormone that rejuvenates ovaries - increasing oocyte production as well as egg and embryo quality in women with premaure ovarian aging or of advanced female age.

Researchers at CHR started investigating DHEA supplementation after a 43-year-old patient, who confessed to having taken an over-the-counter DHEA supplement for four months without her doctor's knowledge, had a massively improved oocyte yield in IVF. Under the leadership of Medical Director Norbert Gleicher, M.D., and Director of Clinical Assisted Reproduction David H. Barad, M.D., CHR's by now widely-published investigations confirm DHEA's effectiveness in increasing female fertility.

In addition to increasing the production and quality of eggs and embryos, DHEA also increases pregnancy rates in IVF treatments, increases the number of chromosomally normal embryos, increases the rate of spontaneously conceived pregnancies, and decreases the rate of miscarriages. These results can be seen in older women and younger women with premature ovarian aging.

In 2009 CHR was awarded a United States patent for use of DHEA in increasing female fertility. A very recent patient testimonial probably best describes DHEA effects in women with infertility.

One 44-year-old patient, initially skeptical of DHEA's effectiveness, wrote: "Years ago, I thought that CHR had a gimmick - DHEA - to distinguish itself from other fertility clinics. I found not enough info at the time to verify that DHEA met up to CHR's claims. In fact one doctor wrote that, if anything, one should take pregnenolone...I got nervous and stopped taking DHEA, which I'd taken for five weeks. I took pregnenolone for about six weeks and stopped as it seemed to make my cycle worse.

"Anyway, early in 2010, CHR emailed me about spontaneous conception of a 46-year-old woman who took DHEA. Finally, in early April, I reopened the bottle and started taking 50 mg of DHEA per day. In early July, I felt the cycle was excellent as the DHEA had caused an abundance of cervical mucus. On July 1, 2010, I conceived!

"There's no doubt it is directly related to CHR's progressive insights. Because CHR appears to be the only one out of the fertility clinics within NYC which promotes DHEA supplementation, it is the only one worth going to."

CHR has in peer-reviewed medical journals published a number of well controlled studies which demonstrate DHEA's effectiveness in increasing fertility amongst women with diminished ovarian reserve (examples: Fertility & Sterility, Human Reproduction, Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics).

CHR's research on DHEA, as a recently published world-wide survey demonstrates, has led to approximately 25% of all fertility centers in the world now using DHEA in women with diminished ovarian reserve.

Searching for Signs of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect

2010-08-12
We trust nursing homes and assisted living facilities to care for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities: elderly individuals who are no longer able to care for themselves. Unfortunately, this trust is sometimes misplaced, and the consequences can be tragic. Abuse and neglect can be particularly worrisome because if often goes unreported. Residents may fear retribution if they speak out about substandard living conditions or may not want to burden their loved ones with such concerns. In some cases, nursing home staff may make it difficult for residents ...

Delays in Immigration Reform and Administrative Alternatives

2010-08-12
The long wait for the Federal Government to address Immigration Reform may be coming to a close, as the debate over the need for reform for border enforcement and the manner in which to deal with the 15 million or so "undocumented" foreign nationals already in the US has reached a boiling point. Although multiple proposals for immigration reform, from single-issue legislation to "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" (CIR) have been introduced in Congress over the past several years, each proposal has met several roadblocks in Congress resulting in no change. With the enactment ...

In Texas, divorced parents or unmarried parents of a child or children are typically named as joint managing conservators ...

New Technologies Provide Convenience Along With Distractions and Risk

2010-08-12
In the digital era, multitasking has become a way of life. While reading the news, we chat with colleagues through instant message. While having coffee with friends, we check text messages. We divide our attention between multiple activities, trusting that each activity only demands a fraction of our available capacity. Most of the time, this is not a serious problem. We have adapted to a way of life that anticipates and accepts constant interruptions. Unfortunately though, some activities are not well-suited to this approach. Most notably, perhaps, is the activity of ...
