An Italian study presented evidence form a study of 48 postmenopausal women, separated into four groups, measuring menopausal symptoms and sexual activity for a year.  Twelve were administered hormone replacement therapy including estrogen and progesterone; and twelve were given tibolone, a synthetic steroid.

At the conclusion of the study the women receiving estrogen and progesterone replacement showed a lessening in menopausal effects.  The study also found that women taking DHEA had a significant increase in sexual activity and desire. Women in the HRT group displayed a similar increase in sexual interest. The group taking vitamin D and calcium showed no significant improvement.

DHEA is converted by a woman's body into testosterone and estrogen, resulting in DHEA being called " the mother of all hormones". 

DHEA should be measured with a blood test before beginning supplementation and monitored .
