AMH tests

How is an ‘AMH’ test result used?

An AMH test result is used to decide which treatment protocol to use.

A blood sample will be taken from you to measure the amount of a hormone called AMH. The result of that test will help us decide which drug stimulation protocol is best for you during your treatment.

Please note that your AMH test result will not be used to decide whether you are offered treatment or not.

A high AMH level raises the possibility that you may over-respond to your treatment (i.e. too many eggs will be produced), increasing the risk of ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome.

A low AMH level raises the possibility that you may respond poorly to your treatment, i.e. only a few eggs are produced.
