What is AMH test – Anti-Mullerian Hormone Test?

An AMH test is a blood test that gauges the level of Anti-Mullerian hormones (AMH) in the blood to analyze the ovarian reserve in a woman. It signifies the number of eggs left in the ovaries. Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) test may be conducted during the menstrual cycle because the AMH levels are stable during the cycle.

The AMH test can assist a woman in deciding whether to start a family late or early. That’s because the AMH test can predict if she will lose fertility sooner or later. Although there are several other tests required to predict fertility as AMH Test alone can’t be exact reflection of your fertility.

AMH Test can also help to judge how she may respond to, in case she opts for, the IVF treatment. Moreover, it helps decide specialist doctors to prescribe the drugs to correctly stimulate the ovaries to obtain the required number of eggs or even reduce the risk of overstimulation

Why the AMH test is done?

As we know that AMH test indicates the number of eggs in the ovarian reserve of a woman. Knowing AMH levels of a woman can be useful in different ways. Let’s delve into it below:

  • AMH test helps a woman to know the level of ovarian reserve which in turn shows the prospects of getting pregnant. If the eggs in the ovarian reserves are high in number then she has higher chances of conceiving and if the eggs in the ovarian reserves are low in number then she has lower chances of conceiving.
  • This usefulness can help a woman decide the time she can choose to get pregnant. As low ovarian reserve shows that she should not delay her motherhood because her ability to get pregnant may deplete earlier and on the other hand if she has high AMH levels than she may take the required time to welcome the baby life.
  • AMH test can aid in anticipating the time of menopause in a woman. This is the time when a woman, commonly around 50 years of age, stop getting menstrual periods and cannot become a biological mother anymore.
  • It may also assist in determining the cause of early menopause.
  • AMH test can be useful in monitoring the women who have ovarian cancer. AMH test can inform if the treatment for such diseases is working well enough or not.
  • Understanding the Anti-Mullerian Hormone level can help diagnose Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a hormonal disorder that is a common reason for infertility in women.
  • Another reason why AMH test can be done is to identify the reason behind Amenorrhea (the lack of menstruation). It is commonly diagnosed in women who have missed various periods and young girls who haven’t started menstruating even till 15 years of age.

AMH Test for Fertility 

Assessing fertility needs a range of test like FSH test, Estradiol, Luteinizing Hormone (LH) Level, Serum Progesterone etc. Gauging fertility through blood tests is not limited to AMH testing. Despite AMH levels is considered to be a measure for a woman’s ovarian reserve, AMH levels don’t indicate a woman’s ability or not to conceive an off-spring within a time frame. 

In a blood test, AMH levels can act as an indicator of the potential number of follicles inside the ovaries but AMH levels don’t represent the quality of eggs. Therefore, the AMH test is not a comprehensive test for fertility.

The relationship between your AMH levels and fertility is that your fertility will decline as you age. This correlates with the decline in AMH levels too.

AMH level test may actually be called as a “screening test” but it is often viewed as the “fertility test”. Hence, a low AMH levels test result does not signify that the women are not fertile. It is a blood test to study and treat a fertility problem. 

Hence, AMH levels test alone should not be the source to understand fertility as fertility also depends on the quality of the eggs which is not gauged by this test.

How the AMH test is done?

The Anti-Mullerian Hormone test is similar to a simple blood test. A professional medical assistant takes a sample of the blood using a small certain needle from a vein in your arm.  Generally, this takes a few minutes. 

Though, the test seems like any other similar test but there is particular equipment required to interpret the results. Hence, one has to specially request to get an AMH test done to the specialist doctor as it may not necessarily be included in a regular fertility blood testing.

The medical professional may advise you to couple your AMH test with the antral follicle test to obtain the best possible overall scenario of your fertility. At times, you may have to undergo the medical testing at a specific time during your cycle even though the AMH test can be conducted at any point in time. This is because your doctor may recommend you other tests along AMH as well, especially if you have not been through enough hormonal tests. For example, if your doctor recommends to test you for progesterone levels. The doctor may order testing in the next half of your cycle.

Birth control pills may impact the level of your other hormones. So, your medical specialist may suggest you to stop consuming your birth control pills for some time. Though, research studies report that birth control pills do not significantly impact the AMH levels in a woman. 

Also, therefore, make sure to be open about your intake of any other fertility drug because your doctor may advise you to goo off on the same or change the pattern of their intake prior to the testing.

Any fasting guidelines are not recommended before the test. An AMH test result is out usually next day. You are presented with the result report signalling whether your AMH levels are normal, low or high.

AMH Test results Explained

The reported levels may be ideal, high or low for a woman depending on various factors. Though, the most dominant factor of them is age. Here we list the Ideal AMH levels for different age groups. 

Age Ideal AMH level 
<24 months <4.7 ng/mL
24 months – 12 years <8.8 ng/mL
13 – 45 years 0.9 – 9.5 ng/mL
>45 years <1.0 ng/mL
Interpretation AMH levels
High levels (Testing for PCOS is advisable) >5.0 ng/ml
High levels (Ideal for IVF treatment) 3.5 – 5.0 ng/ml
Optimal levels 1.0 – 3.5 ng/ml
Low levels (Assisted reproduction is viable) 0.3 – 0.7 ng/ml
Very low levels <0.3 ng/ml

Note: The scale is general and intended for women only.

Higher AMH values (greater than 1 ng/mL) usually signals that a woman has a normal ovarian reserve and lower levels (less than 1 ng/mL) may signify that a woman has diminished ovarian reserve (DOR). AMH levels results help you decide when can you try to conceive by predicting the present possibilities of getting pregnant. A higher level of AMH signifies higher chances and more time before you try to get pregnant as the AMH levels decrease gradually with age. But it may also mean that you are suffering from PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).

On the other hand, low levels of AMH signifies that you may have a low possibility of getting pregnant. It may also mean that you are starting menopause. Low levels of AMH are common in women after menopause and young females. 

Is Any risk during AMH Test ?

The process of undergoing an AMH test is similar to any other blood test. So, the risks associated are similar too, which is quite low. You might feel minimal pain from the needle sting or bruising at the point where the needle was injected, but most of these symptoms go away quickly.

However, the risk during the AMH blood test is slim. But, a point to note is that the AMH test should not be considered as a comprehensive test for showing the complete picture of your fertility. So, in case you are being treated for fertility problems, you may be advised to get other tests done, along with the AMH test.

We suggest you consult a doctor for a complete fertility assessment if you are facing a problem in conceiving.
