Female Hormone Test

This finger-prick Female Hormone test measures a woman’s hormones which can provide information about ovarian reserve.

Category: Tag:


AMH stands for Anti-Mullerian Hormone and is found in your ovarian follicles. Testing your AMH can provide a prediction of your ovarian reserve.

This test is for you if:

  • You are you busy with getting on with life but are beginning to wonder how much time you might have left to start a family
  • You want to find out whether your ovarian reserve is normal for your age
  • You are you considering fertility treatment and want to know if low AMH might reduce your chances of success

Although this AMH test cannot give you a precise answer about how many viable eggs you have left, or predict your chances of becoming pregnant, it can be used to help you in family planning if it shows that your AMH is abnormal for your age.

It is important to understand that AMH testing has it’s limitations:

AMH testing is only an estimate of the number of viable eggs a woman has and should not be used as a definitive test to assess the likelihood of becoming pregnant, either naturally or as the result of fertility treatment, nor can it give a precise estimate for the years left that a woman has to try for pregnancy.

There are many reasons why a couple may have problems conceiving, not just the number of viable follicles in the ovaries. We recommend that a low AMH test result should be followed up with an antral follicle count where a doctor will count the activated follicles within the ovaries.

AMH levels decline as you get older and reach menopause, as the quality and number of ovarian follicles decline with age. Women with polycystic ovaries can have higher than expected results for their age. This is because AMH is produced in the ovarian follicles and women with polycystic ovaries often have high numbers of follicles in the early stages of development.

Please remember though, these tests are not a substitute for seeing your doctor. Our doctors will interpret your results based on the information you have provided, but will not diagnose, consult or provide any treatment. You will be advised to see your doctor for any necessary follow-up action.

How to use

It’s best to take this test 2 to 5 days after the first day of your period, ideally on day 3 of your cycle. However, if you do not menstruate, you can take this test at any time.

It’s important to note that hormonal contraception can affect test results. You should take a break from hormonal conception and use barrier contraception in the month before this test.

Do not take any biotin supplements for 2 days before this test. If your doctor has prescribed biotin, speak with them in advance.
