About this test
This finger prick home blood test tests Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH). This hormone is secreted by cells in developing eggs within the ovaries. The levels of AMH in a woman’s blood provides a good indicator of their egg reserve and therefore their ability to become pregnant.
Many women that are considering IVF or freezing their eggs will be required to undertake this test to determine the likelihood of success with this procedure.

The Ovarian Reserve Test is for women that are curious about their fertility status. It will determine your current ovarian reserve levels and therefore how likely it will be for you to be able to get pregnant.
If you are considering IVF or freezing your eggs, this test can also provide an indication of how likely you are to respond to treatment.
Interpreting your AMH: Your results and analysis of these results will depend on your age:
- > 75% Percentile: High levels of AMH are likely related to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- 25-75% Percentile: Normal Levels
- < 25% Percentile: Low Ovarian Reserve

How to take your home blood test
” Women’s egg reserve naturally decreases as they get older with every cycle. With this ovarian reserve test, women can monitor their fertility levels and review the number of eggs that they have left.
If you are considering IVF treatment or freezing your eggs, this test will give a reasonable indicator to how likely you are too respond to treatment. “
