In brief: Yes

In women dhea peaks after the 20s and slowly declines.
In premenopausal women dhea is made 50/50 in the ovary and adrenal glands. Blood levels measure contributions from both. But there is a wide overlap of "normal" values at different times of day as well as at different ages and sexes.
