AMH is present in both males and females, and levels vary with age and gender. In females, the amount of AMH is proportional to follicular growth and plays an important role in women of child-bearing age.

AMH test is also more commonly called as the Ovarian Reserve Marker because it serves as an indicator of a woman’s fertility and the measure of success of antifertility treatment. The levels of AMH in the blood drop significantly at the onset of menospause and virtually absent after menopause. Hence the AMH test is also a predictor for onset of Menopause. AMH test carries high importance in the diagnosis of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome); PCOS is marked by excess follicles which in turn produce abnormally high amounts of AMH. This is also observed in case of an ovarian tumor. An AMH test may be ordered when evaluating ovarian function, fertility issues, especially when considering assisted reproduction procedures such as IVF. AMH test is not just an ovarian reserve marker but a marker in Non IVF setting and a predictive marker in IVF setting, which can predict the success of IVF treatment.
