Why are your AMH levels important?
AMH stands for anti-Mullerian hormone — the hormone produced by the granulosa cells surrounding your follicles (the little fluid-filled sacs in your ovaries that house and release eggs).
Studies have shown that AMH is the most reliable marker of ovarian reserve — or how many eggs you have. Higher AMH may be a sign that you have a higher egg and follicle count, and lower AMH may be a sign that you have a lower egg and follicle count.
Your AMH can also help you estimate your chances at success for assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures like in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and egg freezing — and when you might enter menopause.
