It is necessary to go on an empty stomach for the extraction of blood. No previous appointment is necessary, the extractions are made from 8:00am – 10:30am from Monday to Friday. The analysis can be done at any time during the menstrual cycle.
The results are given after 5-7 days.
The antimullerian hormone analysis serves to determine a woman’s ovarian reserve, that is, the number of valid eggs she has. This is very important if a pregnancy is to be achieved. This blood test measures the amount of anti-mullerian hormone that decreases over time in the woman and, therefore, becomes a very useful indicator to assess fertility and calculate the arrival of menopause.
The antimullerian hormone (AMH) is secreted by the ovarian follicles, which protect the oocyte during its maturation in the ovaries. The analysis of the antimullerian hormone has become a marker of a woman’s ovarian aging in order to assess not only the number of eggs, but also their quality and, therefore, to know her fertility.
Therefore, the determination of antimullerian hormone through a blood sample is part of the usual analysis in assisted reproduction treatments to select the most appropriate option in each case. It is also a very sensitive marker for diagnosing ovarian disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome.
