Most women diagnosed with low AMH levels are told to “do IVF straight away before it is too late.” Before 2010 most IVF centres would turn women away who wanted to use their own eggs. Donor eggs were the only way to go forward.
Hormone tests help determine treatments for fertility problems. The upper and lower limits of AMH and FSH hormone tests are not where your fertility falls off a cliff. Instead, these limits determine the probable outcome of medical treatment to work.
AMH and FSH levels determine how well IVF drugs will grow good eggs. Women with high FSH and low AMH levels respond poorly to IVF drugs. They have the smallest chance of success with IVF. To date, no IVF hormone therapy has been able to lower FSH levels or raise AMH levels.
After years of interviewing and helping women with low AMH levels there is something they all have in common with each other. It is so fundamental it underpins their entire fertile health and is the primary reason for infertility.
