The Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) test has received a lot of media coverage in the past few years as the way for women in their 30s to see how many eggs they have left. It is for this reason it’s often incorrectly referred to as the egg-timer test. While that’s not an accurate assessment of what AMH actually indicates, the coverage it receives has had the benefit of publicising one of the key facts of fertility - that a woman is born with her lifetime supply of eggs and that the quantity and quality declines steadily until the mid-30s before declining rapidly through to menopause.
At the core of it, the AMH test for ovarian reserve has traditionally been a straightforward and inexpensive blood test used to measure the level of AMH and through that level, determine if your ovaries are losing their ability to produce eggs.
Yet excitingly, in December 2014, Genea introduced newer testing technology. Our new automated AMH test is the first in Australia of this kind and offers you faster, more accurate results. Our new technology delivers better quality results with less imprecision, higher sensitivity and overall greater accuracy. Genea has also evaluated the best way to interpret your results by developing a comparison to AMH levels in people who conceive naturally.
Measuring your AMH level can be a useful predictor of the number of functionally useful eggs remaining in the ovaries (ovarian reserve) and a predictor of your likely response to IVF treatment. Your Fertility Specialist will discuss your results with you including whether your ovarian reserve is in the normal range for your age.
AMH is a hormone which is secreted by the cells involved in developing follicles in your ovaries, therefore your AMH level is a good indicator of your ovarian reserve. Though the AMH test does not give any indication of the quality of your eggs (this is better predicted by your age) it will aid in personalising your fertility treatment. The test can be conducted with a blood sample at any time in your cycle.
If you’d like to learn more about the new and improved AMH test please give our Fertility Advisor a call.
