The Fine Print

Purpose:  The Anti-Müllerian Hormone test will measure the level of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) in your blood which is a generally good indicator of your ovarian egg reserve which can correlate with the likelihood of conception.

Benefits:

  • For women having trouble getting pregnant, this test can help you in your journey.
  • Will identify if you are a good candidate for Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
  • Will determine if you are someone who should consider egg freezing.
  • Will assist in the evaluation of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

Turnaround time: 5-7 days from receipt in lab

Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), also known as Müllerian-inhibiting hormone (MIH), is only present in the ovary until menopause.  Cells that surround each developing egg sac produce AMH. Therefore, AMH can serve as a molecular biomarker for the ovary’s capacity to provide eggs that are capable of fertilization for a healthy and successful pregnancy. This information can also be used to predict approximate timing of menopause. This test offers the ability to determine the health and relative number of eggs by using a Dried Blood Card.

How does a dried blood spot card work?

Dried blood card is a form of collection where patients place blood drops on a filter card after a finger prick with a lancet provided in the kit. Once dry, blood spot cards are extremely stable for shipment and storage (except in extreme heat) and the dried blood format offers excellent correlation with traditional serum tests.  

The first lab test using blood spots was developed in the early 1960s by Robert Guthrie. The collection of dried blood spots samples is normally conducted by pricking the finger, heel, or toe with a lancet, and the blood drops are then put onto pre-printed circles, ideally one drop per spot, on specially manufactured paper. Touching the area where the blood spot goes should be avoided, especially before applying the blood and letting it completely dry. 

It is very important to dry blood spots completely per the instructions for each test before sending back to the lab. After drying, the sample should be protected from humidity and moisture. 

Dried Blood Spot cards are sensitive to extreme measures of heat so it is recommended to use the test earlier in the week (Monday – Wednesday) if you live in a more tropical climate, especially in summer months.
