AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) testing determines the level of AMH in a blood sample. AMH is produced in males by the testicles (or testes), which are glands that produce sperm and male hormones. AMH is produced by the ovaries in females. The ovaries are glands that produce eggs and female hormones.
AMH performs various roles in men and women, and normal levels of AMH vary by gender and age. Monitoring AMH levels can reveal details about a range of reproductive health issues.
AMH aids in the development of male and female reproductive organs in infants. The chromosomes inherited from their parents determine the sex of unborn newborns. Male infants have XY chromosomes, while female infants have XX chromosomes. Hormones, including AMH, influence the development of their reproductive organs and genitals.
