Anti-Mullerian Hormone and Fertility

Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) is a hormone that is used to evaluate ovarian reserve and fertility in women. It is released from the ovaries, and levels help predict egg count and potentially viable pregnancies following ovarian stimulation. It is also measured in assessing polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). 

Low levels of AMH are seen with infertility, low ovarian reserve, and fewer eggs retrieved during fertility treatment. Levels also decline as a woman approaches menopause, at which time levels become undetectable.

However, AMH levels become elevated in PCOS, and the higher levels are associated with higher testosterone in those with the condition.
