This test requires a blood draw, which can be done at your local clinic. It will be analysed by an accredited lab, such as Karolinska, Aleris or Unilabs. The first results are usually available within 48h.
AMH can be taken at any time of the month because, unlike other female hormones, AMH does not fluctuate with a woman's monthly cycle. AMH is unaffected by oral contraceptives and pregnancy.
What happens next?
The lab sends the results to your personal dashboard, with comments from both a doctor and a nutritionist. If results are abnormal, we recommend seeing a doctor and, if appropriate, booking an appointment with a Nordic Wellth nutrition lifestyle specialist.
For fertility, get advice from your IVF clinic or doctor. For IVF purposes two samples from two different menstrual cycles may be required.
No advance preparation is needed for this test.
The day of the test
Remember to take I.D. with you when going to take a test.
Arrive in good time and sit down quietly for 15 minutes before taking the test.
Why test AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone)?
AMH is used by some doctors to estimate egg reserve and ovarian function. As egg quality is more important than egg quantity, AMH cannot reliably predict fertility chances.
An AMH test may be necessary along with other hormone tests to evaluate likely responsiveness to treatment.
Women who have suspected polycystic ovaries (PCOS) may test AMH, which can be elevated due to the increased number of follicles.
Suspected Menopause or Perimenopause
AMH is the most reliable test of likely time-to-menopause.
