I have one child. she will be 6 years old, I have a history of HPV CIN III and has a LEEP when I was 18, since then I had a myomectomy 2 years ago for 3 fibroids, 12 cm in my uterus. About a year after the surgery I started developing abnormal periods. Skipping months, 56 days, 63 days, sometiems I only get my period for one day. My gyn took my FSH levels which were 3.5 and then again a couple months later which were 7.9. After back and forth of still not getting my cycle on time i went to the repo endo, who did a AMH which came up .6 I am waiting for my estrogen/progesterone, and another FSH test back from her. My question is having a low AMH ok at this age, or does it mean what i think it means? I am not looking to have any more children right now, i work full time and want to go to school but If this is what i think it telling me i would want to consider my options. Please help.

AMH testing, or Anti-Mullerian Hormone Testing, measures a substance found in small ovarian follicles. The levels of this are thought to reflect the size of the remaining egg supply.

A level of .6 is seen as low, but not very low, which is .3 or lower. Here's a good explanation of this:


You mentioned that this information might encourage you to seek out your options. I found on a couple of websites that while this test does measure ovarian reserve, it doesn't measure quality of the remaining eggs. When you get your other hormone levels, will you come back and update us? Especially if you have more questions?
