7 days

Department: Biochemistry

Clinical Application
AMH is used to assess ovarian reserve, and to predict likely outcomes of fertility treatment.

In females, serum AMH is very low at birth in females and reaches its highest levels after puberty. As women age, the number of follicles (which produce AMH) decreases and so the level of AMH declines and becomes undetectable after the menopause.

Some specific ovarian cancers, may produce AMH, and so AMH can be used to monitor treatment.
