Unknown, probably no: Supplements such as dhea and pregnenolone are not regulated by the fda and have no good studies that demonstrate that they do anything beneficial for any medical condition. The safety of these supplements is also unknown. You appear to be very young to have to be on hormone supplements. You should see an endocrinologist to find out if you really need to be on them.
