Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Test

KSh9,350

Test Description

The Anti-Mullerian Hormone test or AMH Test measures the levels of AMH in the blood, which is produced by the ovaries in females and the testicles in males. In females, AMH levels correspond to the number of remaining eggs, also known as ovarian reserve. The test is often used to help plan treatment for female infertility and to diagnose ovarian masses. It is a simple blood test that provides valuable information about a person’s egg count and ovarian health[2][3].

Indications of the AMH Test

The AMH test is mainly used in women to assess ovarian function, predict the onset of menopause, evaluate polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and determine the effectiveness of ovarian cancer treatment. It is also used to diagnose ovarian masses and assess the presence of ambiguous external sex organs in infants[5].

Patient Preparation/Instructions

No special preparation is usually required for the test. It can be performed on any day of the menstrual cycle, and no fasting is necessary. Patients should follow any specific instructions provided by their healthcare provider.

Typical Reference Values for AMH Test

The typical reference values for AMH levels can vary by age and gender. In healthy females of childbearing age, higher AMH levels indicate a larger supply of eggs. As females age, the number of eggs decreases, leading to a decline in AMH levels. At menopause, AMH levels drop to zero[2].

Turnaround Time

The turnaround time for the AMH test is typically a few days. Patients will receive their results and any necessary follow-up steps during a consultation with their healthcare provider.
