Frequently asked questions
Although there are no guaranteed ways to increase your AMH levels, there are some natural methods that may help improve your ovarian reserve and fertility. There is some evidence to suggest that vitamin D supplements may increase your AMH level, but it’s difficult to know whether this has any direct effect on your ovarian reserve. 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
How can I increase my 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.
Can I get pregnant naturally with a low AMH level?
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.
Where can I get an AMH test?
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.
Can I take the AMH test at home?
Our at-home AMH test includes a full lab analysis of your blood sample and expert medical advice including any next steps.
How can I check my AMH level at home?
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
Can I use this test to check my ovarian reserve?
Risk factors for low ovarian reserve
Ovarian reserve naturally declines with age as you near menopause. Some women, however, 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 be down to several factors, including:
• Having a family history of early menopause/perimenopause
• Ovarian surgery (such as the removal of an ovary)
• Autoimmune conditions, including thyroid disease
• Pelvic infection
• Chemo- and radiotherapy
What can AMH tell you about your 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 reach menopause early and you may decide to bring your family planning timeline forward.

What is a normal AMH level for my age?
Your AMH level naturally decreases as you get older, so a ‘good’ AMH level will depend on your age and other factors, like your medical history and medications. While there is no universal agreement on normal AMH levels, most laboratories provide a range based on women’s average AMH levels per age group.
Generally, a higher AMH result points to a greater ovarian reserve, but if your result is too high, it could point to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
The table below can help you understand how typical AMH levels vary according to age. These ranges are representative, and the interpretation of your results will vary according to individual factors.
