What Does Low AMH Mean for Your Chances of Becoming Pregnant
by Dr. Chernish
Anti-Mullerian Hormone, or AMH, gives an indication of the number of eggs one might produce in IVF(in vitro fertilization). AMH is sometimes also thought of as an indicator of ovarian reserve, that is, how many eggs are left in the ovaries as well as egg quality. AMH levels can be measured via a blood test and excessively high levels may indicate PCOS(polycystic ovary syndrome). Standard medical treatment for low AMH might include IVF, high doses of fertility meds, and special medications such as Human Growth Hormone.
Dr. Chernish’s approach is unique in that he uses a combination of natural supplements, acupuncture and lifestyle advice none of which are cost prohibitive. The problem with low AMH levels is not just getting pregnant but carrying the baby to term. Dr. Chernish has been happy to assist couples with AMH levels of .5 or even lower to fall pregnant and deliver healthy babies at term.
