Low AMH – Causes And Treatment

AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) is a glycoprotein hormones secreted by pre-antral follicles and small antral follicles of the ovary. The hormone helps in idenitfying if the baby has any working testicular tissues. The test measures the levels of anti-mullerian hormone in the body. The levels are representative of a person’s egg count. 

By the time of puberty a woman has about 100,000 eggs in the ovaries. When she reaches around 40 years of age there are less than 10,000 eggs that remain in the ovaries. Menopause is reached when no eggs are left in the ovaries and the reproductive organs do not have to prepare themselves every month for pregnancy.

AMH is used to test the egg reserve in a woman’s ovaries. It defines the potential of a woman to get pregnant. The test can be conducted on any day of the menstrual cycle. The other tests of ovarian reserve like FSH has to be done on a specific day of the period i.e., day 1 or day 2 of the menstrual cycle.

The normal AMH levels are between 1-3.5 ng/ml. Any AMH level above 2ng/ml is considered a good value, and level <1ng/ml is considered low. Levels less than 0.3ng/ml are considered very low. 

Women with Polycystic ovaries have AMH level > 3.5ng/ml. AMH level reduces with age, younger women usually have AMH > 3.5 ng/l and more than 40years have < 1 ng/ml. AMH can also be expressed as picomol/ml, where the values are multiplied by a factor of 7.
