Antimullerian Hormone (AMH) Blood Test
Antimullerian Hormone (AMH) Blood Test (Male)
This test measures Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) in the blood. AMH is a hormone produced by reproductive tissues. In women, AMH levels typically increase during puberty and then gradually decline over their reproductive years, becoming almost undetectable after menopause. In men, AMH promotes the development of reproductive organs and tapers off after puberty.
Measuring AMH levels can be helpful in determining a woman's ovarian (egg) reserve and how likely she is to be able to conceive. It can also be useful in predicting the onset of menopause. AMH may be abnormally elevated by conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or ovarian tumors. AMN testing is not typically ordered for men but may be done as part of an evaluation for infertility.
Women who are testing AMH levels should order the Antimullerian Hormone (Female) Test.
Turnaround time for the Antimullerian Hormone test (AMH test) is typically 2-7 business days.
