If you are considering to have an IVF, it is very important to know your Anti-Müllerian Hormone levels (also known as your ovarian age)
Ovarian age is not always the same as chronological age. Women are born with their lifetime supply of eggs, and these gradually decrease in both quality and quantity with age.
Your ovarian age can be measured with an Anti-Müllerian Hormone test. This hormone is produced by the cells of the ovarian follicles and it shows your level of good egg reserve.
This information is obtained through a simple blood test and you don’t need to be on a fasting diet for it. It also does not change during your cycle, so the sample can be taken at any time of the month.
The AMH reference values obtained allow us to inform women of their actual ovarian reserve and their monthly fertility index, and can be used to advise a patient on her chances of success in ovarian stimulation, to vitrify oocytes or for IVF, since they are a faithful prognosis of the quantity and quality of your eggs
