What is AMH (Anti Mullerian Hormone):
AMH or Anti Mullerian hormone is secreted by the follicles in your body, which are responsible for creating the egg reserves. This hormone determines ovarian reserve in other words it defines the quantity but not the quality of follicles in the ovaries. The Anti-Mullerian hormone is closely related to the fertility issue and is of high importance who are trying to conceive. It is used as an ovarian reserve marker.
What are Anti Mullerian hormone levels?
In healthy women, the AMH levels initially increase until early adulthood and then starts to decrease with increasing age. It usually occurs till 5 years before menopause when the follicles start to exhaust. The normal AMH level interpretation is given below:
|Over 3.0 ng/ml||High (often an indicator of PCOS)|
|Over 1.0 ng/ml||Normal|
|0.7 – 0.9 ng/ml||Low normal range|
|0.3 – 0.6 ng/ml||Low|
|Less than 0.3 ng/ml||Very low|
Do Low AMH levels decide the probability of natural pregnancy?
It is true that AMH is one of the most important hormones that decide the level of fertility in a woman, as it indicates the levels of ovarian reserve in women. If the level of this hormone is low that means the chances of conception are also low, in such cases the assisted reproductive techniques like IVF come into effect as in IVF there are stimulating drugs injected to retrieve eggs cycle by cycle. High AMH means high egg reserve which in turn means more eggs can be retrieved or more “Good quality “ eggs can be retrieved, making fair chances of the IVF process to be successful.
A natural pregnancy requires a natural pathway for conception. The ovaries do not need any kind of stimulation to produce a number of eggs as the only dominant egg goes through in ovulation naturally. When the egg and sperm are on the healthier side fertilization, natural conception will have a good chance to occur.
