Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and anti- Müllerian hormone (AMH) are two of the most common fertility tests used to evaluate a woman's ovarian function. High FSH and low AMH levels, which usually go together, indicate diminished ovarian reserve (DOR), and reduced pregnancy chances with IVF.
A recent paper by investigators at the Center for Human Reproduction (CHR), published in Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, found that women with the somewhat unusual combination of high FSH and high AMH levels had four times more eggs retrieved, and were almost twice as likely to get pregnant after IVF, than women with all other FSH/AMH combinations.
This live webcast, presented by Norbert Gleicher, MD, Medical Director and Chief Scientist of CHR and lead author of the study, will provide an overview of the findings, as well as what various FSH and AMH levels, combined, may mean to women who are trying to get pregnant.
