What is AMH Test? How is it done?
For people who wish to have a family, infertility might seem like a hopeless scenario.
But with the advancement of science and niche medical care, there is hope. The majority of the time, prevention is preferable to treatment. Keeping yourself educated about your health benefits you in a number of ways. If you allow it, infertility may become a ‘curse’ or it can be ‘cured’. Early detection and a few tests can aid in the execution of preventative measures. Almost anything may now be cured thanks to technological advancements. And, in every scenario, there is always a way out. As a result, a simple test called the anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) test may be used to diagnose infertility or indicators of the same.
- According to research, the number of surviving primordial follicles (microscopic follicles in “deep sleep”) has a significant impact on the size of the pool of expanding follicles.
- A fertility specialist can estimate the quantity of the remaining egg supply – or “ovarian reserve” – by looking at the results of an AMH blood test. The number of tiny follicles left in a woman’s pool shrinks as she gets older. Their blood AMH levels drop, and so does the number of ovarian antral follicles seen on ultrasonography. Women with polycystic ovaries (PCOS) have high AMH hormone levels because they have tiny follicles. Anti-mullerian hormone levels are low in women with few surviving follicles and those entering menopause.
- High range (chances of PCOS) – Over 3.0 ng/ml
- Normal range – Over 1.0 ng/ml
- Low normal range – 0.7-0.9 ng/ml
- Low range – 0.3 – 0.6 ng/ml
- Very low range – less than 0.3 ng/ml
