Do you want to find out if you have an above/below average reserve of eggs in your ovaries (ovarian reserve) or do you want an indication of how many fertile years you have left or whether or not you should put off pregnancy?

Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is a new blood test for quantifying ovarian reserve. Blood levels of AMH can indicate the number of immature follicles in the ovary. Low levels of AMH in the blood can suggest poor ovarian reserve and declining fertility. AMH is produced by granulosa (follicular) cells in the ovary. These cells play a role in the development of follicles and the maturation of eggs, during a woman's reproductive years. This is a 30-minute appointment and the total cost is €125 euros. The blood test for AMH can be carried out on any day of the cycle and results are available within 10 working days
