AMH 0.7 pregnancy chances - Is IVF and Natural Pregnancy Possible?

In this article we discuss whether an AMH of 0.7 is enough for pregnancy, either by IVF or through a natural pregnancy.

What is AMH(Anti Mullerian Hormone)?

AMH, also known as Anti-Müllerian Hormone, is a hormone made by the ovaries. It helps doctors understand how many eggs a woman has. This is crucial for planning fertility treatments, such as IVF, because it predicts how well her ovaries will respond to the treatment.

How is AMH measured?

AMH is measured by drawing a sample of blood from your vein. The sample is transported to the lab and there it is usually analyzed by a variety of automated analyzers.

These analyzers use techniques like EIA, ELISA, or CMIA to detect the AMH levels. These analyzers include the Roche, Beckmann Coulter and Abbott Platforms

Healthcare providers rely on the sensitivity and accuracy of these automated analyzers to assess ovarian reserve and predict fertility potential, ensuring optimal outcomes for individuals seeking fertility evaluation and treatment.

What is the normal range of AMH and how is an AMH of 0.7 graded?

A normal AMH level is usually considered to be between 1.1 and 4 ng/ml. For clinical purposes, AMH is usually recognized as being above or below a cut-off value of 1.1 ng/ml.
AMH Range Inference
<1.1 ng/ml Lower chances of pregnancy through IVF
>1.1 ng/ml Higher chances of pregnancy through IVF

Is an AMH of 0.7 enough for normal pregnancy?

AMH levels cannot be used to predict the chances of a natural pregnancy. AMH is a marker of how many eggs or oocytes are available. It does not give any indication of the quality or viability of these eggs. Across age groups, research has shown that AMH cannot predict your chances of getting pregnany naturally. As such an AMH of 0.7 does not mean that you cannot have a natural pregnancy. Natural pregnancies have been reported even with undetectable AMH levels.

What is IVF and how does AMH 0.7 affect the outcome of IVF for pregnancy?

IVF or in-vitro-fertilization techniques are gaining importance due to low fertility rates. AMH is a key marker to determine which patients are a good fit for IVF. To judge the impact of an AMH level of 0.7 on IVF success rates, we take a look at the various terms used to understand IVF techniques. The following table lists the impact an AMH level of 0.7 may have on IVF outcomes.

Table showing how AMH of 0.7 affects IVF and pregnancy

IVF Component What it Means Impact of AMH 0.7
Eggs Oocytes are cells located in a woman's ovaries. They mix with sperm to create babies. Oocytes play a critical role in the creation of life. AMH 0.7 will mean, there are fewer oocytes available for pregnancy
Oocyte Retrieval - How many eggs can be obtained? Oocyte retrieval in IVF is when doctors get eggs from ovaries. They give medicine to help the eggs grow first. Then, they use a small surgery to take the eggs out. This is a helpful step for couples who want to have a baby. AMH 0.7 will mean there are fewer oocytes retrieved, and hence a poorer chance of pregnancy.
Mature Eggs During IVF, mature oocytes are the eggs that doctors want to find. These eggs are ready to make a baby when they meet sperm. Doctors help these eggs grow inside the ovaries with medicine. After that, they carefully take them out. Couples trying to have a baby rely on these mature eggs. AMH 0.7 will mean there are fewer mature oocytes, and hence fewer chances for a successfull assisted pregnancy
Fertilization In IVF treatment, fertilization happens when sperm meets a mature egg to form an embryo. After collecting mature eggs and sperm, doctors combine them in a lab dish. They keep a close eye on this dish to see if any eggs are fertilized. Successful fertilization is a hopeful step towards pregnancy. AMH 0.7, since it is less than 1.1 is associated with lower chances of fertilization taking place.
Embryo Transfer In IVF, embryo transfer is when doctors put fertilized embryos into a woman's uterus. After creating embryos by joining eggs and sperm in a lab, doctors pick the best ones. They use a thin tube to gently put one or more embryos into the uterus. This helps couples trying to have a baby. AMH 0.7, since it is below 1.1 is associated with lower rates of successfull embryo transfer
Birth In IVF, live birth means having a baby after treatment. After creating embryos by joining eggs and sperm in a lab, doctors transfer them into the uterus. If one of these embryos implants and grows properly, it can result in a pregnancy. This hopeful process brings happiness to couples hoping for a baby. AMH levels have not shown any direct independent correlation with live birth rates in patients undergoing IVF cycles. This means that AMH of 0.7 alone cannot predict the chances of live birth.
