Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), Female

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), Female - AMH-MIS may be used in the investigation of ovarian reserve since AMH concentrations in adult women reflect the number of small antral and preantral follicles entering the growth phase of their life cycle. These follicles are proportional to the number of primordial follicles that still remain in the ovary, or the ovarian reserve.
AMH decreases throughout a woman's reproductive life, which reflects the continuous decline of the oocyte/follicle pool with age and, accordingly, ovarian aging.

AMH is a hormone produced by reproductive tissues. In women, AMH levels typically increase during puberty and then gradually decline over their reproductive years, becoming almost undetectable after menopause. AMH levels can be helpful in determining a woman's ovarian (egg) reserve and how likely she is to be able to conceive. It can also be useful in predicting the onset of menopause. AMH may be abnormally elevated by conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or ovarian tumors.
