I am currently trying to get IVF treatment at St Mary's in Manchester but can't have it at the moment as my FSH levels have been over 10 on last 3 months blood tests.
Have just been to consultant and they said that the new AMH test (Anti Malaria Hormone) will be available from September which is meant to give a much better indicator of ovarian reserve/function than FSH levels (although he did say that he didn't expect mine to be good given my consistent FSH results).
Just wondered if anyone had experience of this? Has anyone had high FSH but then had good results with AMH and been able to do IVF?
There is some controversy over what exactly this test can truly tell you, if anything. Using the test as a predictor of menopause is probably useless, but using it as an indicator of ovarian reserves may be more feasible. Whatever the use, fertility experts currently believe that the AMH test is about 70 percent accurate.
You made a freudian slip with the wording - its called anti mullerian hormone test.
Yes I realised the mistake I made after I googled it! Feel a bit stupid now as I came away from the clinic thinking what's it got to do with Malaria?! (when the consultant said the words to me that's what it sounded like!)
