I was just wondering if anyone knew much about AMH levels. I have recently been tested and my level came back as 8....the nurse said it was a little low but about right for my age (I am 34). After using Dr Google, I am now worried sick after reading my level is low and I have low ovarian reserve. Does this now mean I wont be able to get pregnant or it will affect things if I go for IVF? I am so worried...the nurse at my clinic didnt seem too phased but all I read is terrible things. Part of me wishes I have never looked online as this has made me very upset. A few kind and helpful words of assurance would be great right now. Thank you x x

Sadly counsellors are not medically qualified, you are welcome to speak with Diane on the Advice Line and we always suggest firstly discussing your results with a doctor or nurse at your clinic who will use your AMH in conjunction with other test results.

Hi Reilly33. I have been asked to reply to your question regarding AMH levels. A reading of 8 does come into the “low fertility” range. This will mean that if you decide to go for IVF treatment, then your consultant may offer you a “short” protocol instead of the standard “long” one, in order to work with your own hormones and to protect your ovaries. I would hope that at your age it could be higher reading, but it is quite “useable”. I wish you well with the eventual outcome. Kind regards Diane

thank you for both your answers. I have my next appt with my fertility doctor in January so will ask more questions then as so far I have only spoken with the nurses. You've been really helpful x x
