As an intended parent searching for an egg donor women have often completed many screenings and testing themselves. What some numbers mean for an intended mother is often different then the expectation there would be for an egg donor. Measuring an egg donor’s AMH is one of those factors.
AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) can help indicate a woman’s fertility. AMH helps to measure a woman’s remaining ‘ovarian reserve’ by measuring the number of follicles developing in the ovary at a specified time. Once the test is complete, a clinic will compare the results with those of women who are the same age. For some intended mothers when choosing to embark on IVF themselves, they will often go through a cycle when their AMH levels are lower than desired but the expectation of what an ”acceptable” level changes when choosing an egg donor.
Are you wondering, what is a good egg donor AMH?
Below is a chart from www.fertileheart.com explaining the most common measurement of AMH.
Measurement of Anti-Mullerian Hormone Levels
|High AMH||Over 3.0ng/ml|
|Normal AMH||Over 1.0ng/ml|
|Low Normal AMH||0.7-0.9ng/ml|
|Very low AMH||Less than 0.3ng/ml|
You will want to consult with your physician to decide if your donors AMH levels are acceptable for completing an egg donation cycle.
One benefit to initially screening a woman’s AMH is that it can be done at any point during a woman’s cycle. A donor does not have to wait until a specific time in her cycle in order to have screening completed. This is a major benefit to intended parents who are looking to qualify an egg donor immediately.
AMH, is a simple test that can be done to save an intended parent(s) from investing both financially and emotionally in an egg donor. Egg Donor Solutions understands that finding out if a first time donor has the appropriate level of fertility before completing a cycle is important to intended parents.
