just got my latest AMH results - "less than 0.16". how much less??!! i guess that is better than undetectable. anyway, in an attempt to see if i could make myself feel better about it, i was online looking for someone to tell me AMH doesn't matter and found this, from ce.nter for human reproduction website:
In recent years, AMH, especially in younger women, has been proven a better predictor of OR than FSH. CHR investigators were amongst the first to report this fact [Barad et al, Fertil Steril 2009;91(4):1553-5]. Above age 42, AMH, however, loses its predictability, as also reported first by CHR investigators [Gleicher et al, Reprod Biol Endocrinol 2010;8:64].
While very low AMH has been associated with low pregnancy chances, the latest CHR research suggests that even women with undetectably low AMH levels can still conceive and successfully carry pregnancies to term [Weghofer et al, Hum Reprod 2011;26(7):1905-9.]. For detail, please refer to our scientific publications page.
