Is it for you?

Are you thinking of starting a family now or in the future? Perhaps you’re having or considering fertility treatment, or simply curious and want to know more about your egg count.

Measuring your AMH level gives you an indication of your ovarian reserve, and is sometimes used in fertility planning.

Learn more

Anti-Mullerian Hormone, or AMH, is a hormone produced by the ovaries. In particular, it is produced by the follicles which contain eggs within the ovary. Levels can indicate how high or low a woman's ovarian reserve is. Anti Mullerian Hormone is not routinely measured in men. It may be used by specialist fertility clinics in assessing sperm production.
Special instructions

How to prepare for your test

Prepare for your Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Blood Test by following these instructions. AMH levels fluctuate minimally throughout the menstrual cycle, so taking the test at any point will give you a valid result. However, if you have regular periods and you're tracking your results over time, we recommend taking the test between days two and five of your cycle for consistency, or follow guidance from your fertility specialist. Do not take biotin supplements for two days before this test, discuss this with your doctor if it is prescribed. Hormonal contraception can affect the results of this test. Taking a break from this and waiting for your periods to restart before your blood test will give more accurate results.

FAQs

What can I learn from this test

Our AMH Blood Test will tell you if your AMH level is normal for your age. If you’re undergoing in vitro fertilisation (IVF), it can be useful to predict the number of eggs you’ll release as well as the dosage of medication to stimulate the ovaries. 

If you receive a low AMH result, this can be a sign that your ovarian reserve is decreasing, which may affect your fertility. In these cases, your fertility doctor may recommend a follow-up ultrasound scan (antral follicle count), where a doctor counts the activated follicles within your ovaries. 

Our AMH test can also help signal some reproductive health conditions. For instance, a high AMH level can be an indicator of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal condition that can affect your fertility.

What could affect my results?

Some hormonal contraceptives, such as the pill or the implant, can falsely lower your result. Having polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is also likely to lead to a falsely raised result.

Other factors that may affect your AMH level include biotin supplements and previous ovarian surgery. For more information, please see our special instructions.

What is AMH?

Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is made in your ovaries — specifically by the small follicles where your eggs develop. The number of follicles you have declines naturally with age. As AMH is only produced by ovarian follicles, the same decline is seen in the AMH level, which makes it a good indicator of your ovarian reserve.

How can I increase my AMH level?

Although there are no guaranteed ways to increase your AMH levels, there are some natural methods that can help improve your ovarian reserve and fertility.

Speak with your doctor about the best ways to improve your AMH levels and maximise your chances of conceiving. And you can find out more in our Fertility Guide.

Can I get pregnant naturally with a low AMH level?

Yes, it’s still possible for you to get pregnant naturally with a low AMH level, although it may be more difficult with fewer remaining eggs. Some people with a low AMH level may still be able to conceive without any difficulty, while others may need fertility treatment such as IVF.

Where can I get an AMH test?

Your blood sample for our AMH Blood Test can be taken at home or at one of our convenient nationwide partner clinics, at a time that suits you.

Can I take the AMH test at home?

Yes, you can take our anti-Müllerian hormone test at home using our finger-prick blood test kit. We'll send you everything you need, including a pre-paid return envelope.

How can I check my AMH level at home?

Our at-home AMH test includes a full lab analysis of your blood sample and expert medical advice including any next steps.

Can I use this test to check my ovarian reserve?

AMH can give you an indication of your ovarian reserve. If a blood test shows that your AMH is lower than the normal range for your age, it may indicate that you have fewer eggs remaining. Read more about what AMH can tell you about your fertility

What are the risk factors for low ovarian reserve?

Ovarian reserve naturally declines with age as you near menopause. However, some women can be diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve, meaning the number and quality of their eggs is lower than expected for their age.

A low ovarian reserve can have several causes, including:

-A family history of early menopause/perimenopause

-Smoking

-Ovarian surgery (such as the removal of an ovary)

-Autoimmune conditions, including thyroid disease

-Pelvic infection

-Chemo- and radiotherapy

What can AMH tell me about my fertility?

If you’re starting fertility treatment or have decided to freeze some of your eggs, an AMH test can give you an estimate of your ovarian reserve (how many eggs you have left).

If your result is very low, it could mean you’re more likely to have an early menopause and you may decide to bring your family planning timeline forward. Read our blog to find out what AMH can tell you about your fertility.

Limitations of the test

Read before you order:

  • Although our AMH Blood Test can give you insights into your ovarian reserve, it can’t tell you how many healthy eggs you have remaining or your likelihood of becoming pregnant (either naturally or through fertility treatment). There are many reasons why a couple may not be conceiving, which this test can’t detect. Therefore, this test should not be used as a predictor of fertility. Normal AMH levels are based on broad age brackets. AMH levels peak at around 25 years of age. If you’re under 25, the result may not accurately reflect your ovarian reserve.
