Anti-müllerian hormone (AMH) is a good marker to assess the ovarian reserve of women. Although it is true that there may be differences in AMH results between different laboratories, in general they can be interpreted as follows:
- AMH less than 0.6 ng/ml: low ovarian reserve.
- AMH between 0.7 and 2.9 ng/ml: normal ovarian reserve.
- AMH greater than 3 ng/ml: good ovarian reserve.
However, it must be taken into account that very high AMH values may indicate a higher risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) in assisted reproduction techniques.
