AMH – Anti-Mullerian Hormone
A hormone is produced in the antral follicles of the ovaries.
Through a simple blood test, it is possible to measure and estimate a woman’s “ovarian reserve” how many follicles and eggs she has left. Women are born with all the eggs they will ever have and this number declines with age. However, whilst the measurement of AMH supports many clinical decisions, it should always be considered in conjunction with other tests. AMH can also be used as a marker for ovarian dysfunction, such as PCOS.
