Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Test
The Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) test is used to evaluate fertility in women. The AMH test can predict the onset of menopause within about four years. As women age, AMH decreases. AMH has been demonstrated to be more accurate in predicting time to the final menstrual period than follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) or estradiol.

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is secreted by reproductive organs in women and men. In women, testing AMH can provide important information about the ability to get pregnant, whether she’s entered menopause and may be elevated in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and ovarian tumors.
