Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Blood Test

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is produced by the ovaries and can indicate how high or low your ovarian reserve is. This means it can estimate how many remaining viable eggs you have, and therefore help assess reproductive potential.


Why AMH?

Common reasons for this blood test are:

  • You are considering IVF, or have started the process and have been advised to have an AMH blood test
  • To check whether your ovarian reserve is as expected for your age
  • To help with the investigation of polycystic ovary syndrome
  • To get an idea of your future fertility (although this blood test cannot give you a definitive answer about your fertility).

Your blood test

Our phlebotomy-trained professionals will take a blood sample from you. This sample will be analysed in the UK by our authorised partners, TDL. By booking this blood test, you agree for us to share your personal information with TDL in order to process your test. We’ll make sure you consent to this at your appointment too.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, we will send you the results and recommend that you share these with your GP or fertility provider.

It is not unusual for some bleeding to occur under the skin following your blood test and sometimes this can extend a little further around the puncture site.  If this causes you concern, check with your practice nurse. 

Sometimes we cannot get a blood sample from you. This can be for many reasons, such as not being hydrated enough, feeling cold or having another blood test recently. We will always offer you another appointment so we can try again.
