Who is this test for?
Women who are determining when to attempt to become pregnant or who are considering in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment to become pregnant may want to be tested for their AMH levels. This information can help in deciding whether to start trying to become pregnant by indicating how long they may have before they enter menopause and can also be used to determine their level of fertility and how well they will respond to IVF treatment.AMH levels can also be used to help diagnose POCS. Women experiencing symptoms of POCS should be tested to assist in a diagnosis and to be used to determine appropriate treatment. Although AMH levels cannot be used alone to diagnose POCS, higher levels frequently accompany the syndrome. POCS symptoms in-clude unusual bleeding, amenorrhea (lack of menstrual cycle), acne, decreased breast size, enlarged ovaries, weight gain, especially in the middle of the body, and male traits such as male pattern baldness or male hair growth patterns on the face, chest, back or inner thigh. AMH levels can also be used to monitor the treatment and possible recurrence of ovarian cancer that affects AMH in the body.
