Low AMH – Understanding the Condition and Treatment Options
Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) is a hormone that is produced by cells in the ovaries called granulosa cells. It is a biomarker of ovarian reserve, which refers to the number and quality of eggs a woman has left in her ovaries.
AMH levels are an important indicator of a woman’s reproductive health, as they can help predict the likelihood of successful fertility treatment. Women with low levels of AMH may have fewer eggs, making it harder to conceive naturally or through assisted reproductive technologies.
Some underlying causes of low AMH include genetic factors, autoimmune disorders, or environmental factors like smoking, stress, or chemotherapy.
It is important to note that while AMH levels are a useful biomarker of ovarian function, they are just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to fertility. Other factors such as age, overall health, and lifestyle can also impact fertility, and it is important to work with a knowledgeable fertility specialist like Dr. Supriya Puranik to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that takes all of these variables into account.
Signs of Low AMH
Women with low AMH levels may experience a variety of signs and symptoms that can impact their reproductive health. Some of the most common symptoms of low AMH include:
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Difficulty conceiving
- Changes in vaginal discharge
- Early onset of menopause
Diagnosis and Treatment of Low AMH
When diagnosing low AMH, the fertility specialist will typically perform a blood test to measure the level of AMH in a woman’s bloodstream. Additional testing, such as an ultrasound or biopsy, may also be necessary to determine the underlying cause of the low AMH.
By measuring AMH levels, fertility specialists can develop personalized treatment plans for their patients, tailor-made to their individual needs and circumstances. This can include strategies to optimize
- ovarian function, such as lifestyle changes or hormonal therapies,
- as well as assisted reproductive technologies like IVF or IUI.
In addition to helping predict the likelihood of successful fertility treatment, AMH levels are also useful for assessing a woman’s risk of fertility-related conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis and premature ovarian failure.
One of the key benefits of AMH testing is that it can be done at any point in the menstrual cycle, making it a convenient and reliable way to assess fertility potential. AMH levels tend to remain relatively stable throughout a woman’s reproductive years, meaning it is often used as a reliable predictor of ovarian function and egg supply.
Women who have been diagnosed with conditions like PCOS or endometriosis may have lower AMH levels than normal, which can make it harder to conceive. Fortunately, fertility treatments like IVF can help to increase the odds of a successful pregnancy, even in cases where AMH levels are low.
