Q) What is Low AMH?
A) AMH or Anti-Müllerian hormone is an indicator of ovarian reserve in women. During a basic infertility check-up, a blood test is usually done to check for the AMH value which gives us an insight of ovarian reserve. The AMH value will help to determine how urgently a woman needs to seek treatment and how she will respond to it.
AMH decreases with age because as a woman ages her ovarian reserve gets depleted as well. And depleted ovarian reserve might lead to fertility issues. Critically low values would also indicate a reduced response to ART. So, during basic investigations, if a woman’s AMH value is found to be low, she must consider getting treatment without further delay.
Q) What causes low AMH?
A) While considering the reason of low AMH, the age of the woman plays a significant role. Ovarian reserve tends to decline when a woman is in her mid-30’s and becomes even lower in a woman who is 40 years and above.
The factors that may be responsible for low AMH are:
b) Inherited genetic causes
c) Autoimmune disorder
d) Previous ovarian surgery
Q) How to Increase AMH levels?
A) Low AMH levels are considered to be an indicator of Low Ovarian Reserve. There is no magic food to eat or Vitamins to take, that would miraculously increase the low AMH levels or even reduce the symptoms of low AMH like irregular periods. Thus, it’s important to consult a qualified IVF specialist to address all infertility issues.
Q) What is the relation between low AMH and fertility?
A) Low AMH level is not the cause of infertility, and it indicates that there is a low ovarian reserve. That means that the number of eggs developing in the ovaries are limited, and the chance of a mature good quality egg releasing every month and getting fertilised decreases. Also, with age, the quality of eggs gets affected and the chances of early miscarriages due to abnormalities in the egg increases.
Q) How is Low AMH Treatment done?
A) If patient is not able to conceive naturally then, the treatment for low AMH is done through IVF treatment, which can make optimal use of the limited eggs left in the ovaries provided, the mature egg retrieved in a specific IVF Cycle should be of good quality.
If the AMH level is low with an abnormally raised FSH levels, then it is an indication that the ovaries are not having good quantity of eggs which would mean poor fertility outcome. But with proper treatment that is with an appropriately designed ovarian stimulation protocol they have been able to conceive successfully through IVF.
And for women who have very limited eggs or no eggs at all, and where ovarian stimulation to retrieve good quality eggs have failed, then they should consider IVF with a donor egg.
