Is Menstruation Not Related To Low Levels Of The AMH Hormone?
Tonight I want to ask, at the age of 27 years and AHM levels of 0.001 mg, can it still be increased, and I haven’t had my period for a long time, even if I want to menstruate I have to take birth control pills, or medication from the obstetrician, is it not related to menstruation AHM hormone.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is a hormone produced by granulosa cells from follicles that develop in the ovaries. This hormone characterizes the ovarian reserve, which is the number of follicles in the ovary. In healthy women, AMH levels initially increase until early adulthood, then slowly decrease with age until they are no longer detected about 5 years before menopause (when the number of developing follicles is almost gone). AMH normal levels are around 1.0 - 3.0 ng / mL. AMH levels less than 0.3 mg / mL are categorized as very low. Low AMH levels, and accompanied by elevated levels of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), are indicators of impaired ovarian reserves.
Impaired ovarian reserve is a condition in which the quantity and quality of female eggs is lower than it should be at her age. There are several things that cause ovarian reserve disorders, including: oviduct disease, endometriosis, history of ovarian surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, smoking, pelvic infections, autoimmune diseases, and genetic disorders. Patients with impaired ovarian reserve can experience the following symptoms:
Difficulty getting pregnant
Menstruation that is late or not menstruating at all
Shortening of the menstrual cycle compared to the average (less than 28 days)
Menstrual bleeding that much
It is possible that patients who have low AMH levels experience no menstrual symptoms. However, this still needs to be evaluated by a doctor. We recommend that you consult directly with a specialist obstetrics and gynecologist regarding the examination of AMH levels that have been done. The examination is a supporting examination whose interpretation requires the patient's clinical information, which is obtained through history taking and physical examination by the doctor who handles the patient directly.
