Low Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH)

Print

Women are born with all the eggs they will ever have, and the quantity and quality of eggs deteriorates with age.

From 35, your Ovarian Reserve (which refers to the number of ‘good eggs’ in your ovaries) declines at a rapid rate until menopause when you have 0 eggs left. Ovarian Reserves decline at an earlier age for women experiencing premature menopause.

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (or AMH) is produced by follicles in your ovaries which contain eggs. The level of AMH in your blood is a good indicator of your Ovarian Reserve – which is how many eggs you have remaining and how many fertile years you may have.

At Repromed, we can test your AMH level to determine how many eggs you have left. The AMH blood test can be done any time in your menstrual cycle and you can complete the blood test if you are on the contraceptive pill.

Repromed were the first laboratory in Australia to offer AMH testing in 2004 and the first in the world to offer the fully automated Roche AMH Assey clinically.

You might consider having an AMH blood test if you:

  • are having trouble conceiving
  • want to check your ovarian reserve is at a healthy level for your age (you have a good number of eggs)
  • are concerned about things that could have effected your reserve, such as chemotherapy
  • want an idea of how many fertile years you may have ahead
