What is AMH?

Sarah C. Hessler, M.D. Dr. Hessler ART

You may have heard a lot about AMH or been asked “What’s your AMH level?”

AMH stands for Anti-Mullerian Hormone and is one of the ways that we can estimate your ovarian reserve. Ovarian reserve can only be estimated, as we cannot actually count the number of good quality eggs that are in your ovaries. AMH, along with your day 3 FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) level and your AFC (antral follicle count) gives your doctor an idea of your chances of having a baby. However, it is very important to remember that there is a lot of variability within these tests and that women with low values can still go on to have successful pregnancies. That’s why we recommend a full evaluation by your IRMS doctor who will explain how we can help you fulfill your goals.

AMH is secreted by the potential eggs within the ovary, and a normal level may indicate that you should respond well to medications that we use to stimulate the ovaries during IUI (intrauterine insemination) and IVF (in Vitro Fertilization) cycles.
