AMH is a hormone released by your developing egg sacs (ovarian follicles). Your AMH levels are a good indicator of how many eggs you have left — your ovarian reserve.
AMH levels naturally decline with age, usually starting in your mid-20s. Low AMH levels in younger women might indicate lower remaining follicles and a smaller ovarian reserve.
Causes of low AMH levels include:
An AMH test can’t directly predict your fertility or the time it will take to conceive. But it’s helpful if you’re considering family planning, freezing your eggs, or IVF.
“You’re born with a set number of eggs — up to 1-2 million. The more eggs you have left, the higher your AMH levels will be."
— Dr Macarena Staudenmaier, MD, MSc

When should you do this test?
Unlike other hormones, AMH doesn’t fluctuate throughout the month. This means you can do this test at any time during your cycle.
What can't this test tell you?
An AMH test can’t directly predict your fertility or the time it will take to conceive.
If you take hormonal contraception
Some studies show that the contraceptive pill and implant can reduce your AMH results by up to 30%. But your AMH levels return to normal once you stop taking hormonal contraception.
