Antimullerian hormone (AMH) is an excellent marker of ovarian reserve in women, i.e. the number of ovarian follicles available at any given time. This hormone is produced by the granulosa cells surrounding the egg.
When the AMH concentration is around 0.7-3.5 ng/mL, the woman will have normal ovarian reserve. However, if the AMH values are lower than indicated, the ovarian reserve will be diminished.
Unlike other hormones such as FSH, AMH concentration is independent of the time of the woman's menstrual cycle.
