Antimullerian Hormone Blood Test
Check the Antimüllerian Hormone in your blood to assess your remaining egg reserve.
What is this test?
Antimüllerian Hormone (AMH) is a diagnostic test that measures the levels of AMH in the blood. AMH is a hormone produced by the ovaries, specifically by the cells in ovarian follicles. It indicates ovarian reserve, reflecting the quantity and quality of a woman's remaining egg supply.
This test is often used in fertility assessments to provide information about a woman's ovarian function and potential for fertility. By measuring AMH levels, healthcare providers can estimate the number of remaining eggs and assess the likelihood of achieving successful pregnancy outcomes. The test is particularly useful for women undergoing fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or considering reproductive interventions. It helps inform decisions about the most suitable fertility treatment protocols and can predict response to ovarian stimulation.
AMH test may also be considered in the following situations:
- Fertility Planning: If you are considering starting a family or want to assess your reproductive potential, the AMH test can provide information about your ovarian reserve. It can help you make informed decisions regarding family planning options.
- Infertility Evaluation: If you and your partner have been trying to conceive for a significant period without success, an AMH test may be included as part of an infertility workup. It can provide insights into your ovarian reserve and potential response to fertility treatments.
- Ovarian Disorders: The AMH test may be recommended if you have a known or suspected ovarian disorder, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis. It can help evaluate the impact of the condition on your ovarian reserve.
- Undergoing a fertility treatment
- Older women (age above 35)
- Low follicle count during scan examination
- Have polycystic ovaries (PCO/PCOS)
- You are diagnosed with endometriosis
Low AMH can also have symptoms such as:
- Difficulty conceiving
- Irregular periods
- Early menopause
- Elevated Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) Levels
- Poor Response to Ovarian Stimulation
How long does it take?
The test turnaround is 24 hours.
