Antimullerian hormone levels through the cycles of assisted reproductive techniques: a correlational study
Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess the association of serum antimullerian hormone(AMH) levels in assisted reproductive techniques(ART) cycles with some reproductive measures.
Methods: In a cohort study, 60 patients aged 20-40 years who attended as candidates for ART at an infertility clinic were enrolled. Serum levels of follicle stimulating hormone(FSH), E2 and AMH was assessed using blood samples taken on the third menstrual day.
Results: Serum FSH was negatively correlated with E2 levels(r=-0.28, P<0.05). AMH was moderately correlated with implantation rate(r=0.6, P<0.001). AMH and FSH were not correlated with BMI, antral follicles or oocyte count.
Conclusion: Weak to moderate correlations may exist between AMH and some reproductive factors, but a high prediction power cannot be expected in predicting the pregnancy occurrence for single measurements of AMH.
