Limitations of AMH to Determine Ovarian Reserve

a blog by Dr. Michael DiMattina, March 26, 2014

New information is available about the limitations of the current assay for serum Antimullerian Hormone (AMH) for determination of your ovarian reserve.

A recent study published in the February, 2014 journal of Fertility and Sterility evaluated the current assay used to determine serum AMH and found that the values obtained in the newer current assay may be flawed, resulting in significant clinical implications for patients who are told they have decreased ovarian reserve when, in fact, they may not.

The Basics of Semen Analysis

Sperm

When a couple has been trying to conceive 'the old fashioned way' for a year without results (or six months if they're over 35), they will hopefully be pro-active and find their way to a Fertility Doctor. During an initial consultation, the Doctor will go over their medical history and start the process of finding answers in order to formulate a game plan. Invariably, part of getting a clearer picture of what's going on and how to use that information to help conceive will involve testing.

The next-steps after a first consultation varies from couple to couple. For the woman, the possible tests suggested will vary based on her medical history, cycles and age. The one test that you can almost bank on being recommended, however, is for the man to have a semen analysis.
