Is anyone able to make sense of my AMH results?

I had a load of bloods taken to check why I'm having repeat miscarriages and also why I'm having a lot of very heavy bleeding.
Most of my results came back fine, including the one here. However, I just wondered what the numbers meant and how 'normal' my result is, as it seems really high unless I've misunderstood.
I'm 36 years old with PCOS if that makes a difference.

I'd love it if you could take a look and tell me what a result of 94.80 actually means as it looks like I should be 37.4?

I'm not seeing my consultant again for 3 weeks so if anyone can shed some light I'd be most grateful. Thanks!

Taken from www.advancedfertility.com/amh-fertility-test.htm

"Women with many small follicles, such as those with polycystic ovaries have high AMH hormone values "

"AMH levels probably do not tell us much about egg quality."

So the high level appears to confirm your PCOS. But other than that it is unfortunately not helpful in the question of recurrent miscarriage.

In recurrent miscarriage the egg quality (and sperm quality!) are more important than the number of eggs, the AMH test is about the number of eggs, and so actually not really particularly relevant in your situation.

I hope you get answers soon for your recurrent miscarriages.

Thanks willitbe I thought that might be the case, I just couldn't understand why my result was deemed normal. But I guess you're correct in saying PCOS causes it to be high. So I guess I don't have to worry about peri-menopause then if my result is so high.
They actually found on a scan that the reason for my heavy bleeding is mild Edenomyosis, so just the repeat MCs we need to find out about now.

Thanks again
