Anti-Mullerian Hormone ( AMH) is a hormone secreted by the granular layer cells of small follicles in women’s ovaries. When the follicles grow to 4-6mm in size, they will cease to secret AMH. In the blood, AMH is not alternated with the menstrual cycle, the presence or absence of pregnancy, etc., and can be used as an indicator of the ovarian egg inventory. A woman's ovary is a storage place of eggs, which are a set number after birth. The amount of follicles in this ovary represents the number of eggs a woman can use in the future. Thus, the AMH titer is closely related to the woman's fertility.
Currently, AMH’s clinical application:
- Assess egg reserve in ovaries of women of reproductive age
- Assess the potential of female fertility
- Predicting the risk of early ovarian failure in women
- Predicting Polycystic Ovary
- PredictingIVF effectiveness in stimulating ovulation
- Predicting IVF success rate.
- Predicting timing of menopause
- Predicting ovarian damage before and after surgery or chemotherapy
