AMH and PCOS
One of the biggest causes of high Anti-Mullerian Hormone levels in women is PCOS. Research shows that for women of childbearing age, those with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome tend to have higher levels of AMH. The reason for this is most likely caused by enlarged follicles due to the PCOS condition, so testing AMH levels at home can also reveal the potential for a PCOS condition in addition to fertility.
Studies show AMH levels of 8.16 ng/ml for women 20-29 years old and 5.89 ng/ml for women 30-39 years old might indicate PCOS. However, some experts believe an AMH level of 6.8 ng/ml or higher at any age is cause for concern. Scientists consider AMH tests to be one of the most crucial tools in diagnosing PCOS.
With that said, women with high levels of AMH and PCOS are commonly very fertile, according to research.
At-home Anti-Mullerian Hormone tests
Testing AMH levels typically requires a blood test taken in-office by a practitioner. However, testing at home – and getting accurate results – is a more accessible way to find out your levels and how that might impact fertility or indicate PCOS. At-home AMH test kits test the blood through a finger prick to determine where levels are at.
Learning more about AMH levels through an at-home test can help monitor fertility levels and potential for PCOS as well as predict the start of menopause. Test results can also help professionals learn more about the cause of early menopause or the reason for amenorrhea (lack of menstruation).
