What is AMH?
Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is a new blood test for quantifying ovarian reserve. AMH is produced by granulosa (follicular) cells in the ovary. These cells play a role in the development of follicles and the maturation of eggs, during a woman's reproductive years.
The blood test for AMH can be carried out on any day of the cycle (as opposed to FSH which must be measured on cycle day 3). Levels do not fluctuate from one cycle to another, making AMH a more reliable measure of ovarian reserve than FSH.
Where can patients avail of the test?
AMH testing is available at our clinics in Cork, Limerick and Waterford.
When are the results available?
Results are available within seven working days.
What is the cost?
Patients can avail of the test at our clinics at a cost of €75. Alternatively, patients can purchase the AMH kit from our clinic by contacting a patient liaison coordinator and the kits will be posted directly to them. The cost is €60.
