    Default Very high AMH

    My FS is away and my gp gave me my results saying that my AMH is 71 and this is very very high. She said I must have polycystic ovaries. My LH is also up resulting in a 3.9 ratio to FSH which isn't great I believe but I may havd misinterpreted spotting as AF following an anovulatory cycle and thus mid cycle would have never finished for me and instead of being on CD3 for the new cycle I may have been CD36 of my old anovulatory cycle. Proper bleeding only arrived a few days after I took the test it seems (although pain free which is unusual for me)... I am very concerned about the high AMH and chances of comception with the polycistic ovaries and not being able to take fertility assistance meds if I ever need them due to a risk of OHSS. The reason my doc took bloods was an ultrasound after my endo showing several antral follicles. I remember my FS saying he was expecting to see me AMH at least over 30 but 71 is a major jump. I can't see him until mid April unfortunately and am after some of you lovely ladies experiences with high AMH... Thank you

    I probably should add all other bloods were perfect and I have no PCOS symptomes. My periods come like Glock work save my last cycle in which I had enormous stress.

    I had a high AMH level (sorry can't remember the number as it was quite a few years ago now) and the FS I was seeing decided I had PCOS just from this level alone without even having a scan done to look at my ovaries. He put me on letrozole (like clomid but apparently less side effects and better for people with PCOS) and metformin. It didn't help me conceive. After a round of IVF and a miscarriage I decided to change specialists as I was not happy with the care I was receiving. My new FS looked at blood results, did scans etc and told me I did not have PCOS, and there was no signs of poly cystic ovaries.

    I guess what I am trying to say is don't take the AMH level as the only indication of PCOS, especially if you don't have any other signs of it.

    Wow thanks for this :-)
    Do you mind me asking whether you had regular cycles and did ovulate normally? How did you go with everything now?

    I had regular cycles and ovulated. My fertility problems ended up being classed as unexplained.

    When we switched doctors I did a frozen ivf cycle (we had embryos left from the fresh round that resulted in a miscarriage) and fell pregnant. That little one is now 3 years old.

    I then fell pregnant naturally with our second when our first was 7 months old. Big surprise after trying for so long naturally first time with no results. Ivf seemed to kick my body into gear or something!

    Hi,
    I had my AMH tested and the result was around 11 and retested a year later and it was 48. Lots of FS's don't put a lot of stock in it and I can see why! ( I'm an egg donor hence the re-testing)

    When I was TTC my second baby a couple of years ago I had my AHM tested and I believe it was around the 100 mark. From memory anyway. He said it was high. But nothing about PCOS. Just that my egg stores are ok so nothing to worry about. I definitely have never had symptoms of PCOS.

    I needed clomid to ovulate and once the dosage was right (150mg) I fell pregnant quickly.

    Slightly different to you guys but I had very low amh (for my age anyway) at 7.1 but have always had symptoms of pcos. Had ivf treatment which went well with 12 eggs produced which surprised Dr as with low amh they thought I wouldn't get many but then I went on to develop severe ohss and was in hosp for 3 weeks. So what im saying is that I was kind of the opposite in that pcos seems unlikely with low amh yet it's the first thing Dr think when I discuss my fertility problems and the ohss was typical for pcos. So I basically think amh can be a load of crap sometimes and not something to stress about (I know I did and was gutted at the time but all worked out fine)!
