Anti-Müllerian hormone serum levels predict response to controlled ovarian hyperstimulation but not embryo quality or pregnancy outcome in oocyte donation

Fertil Steril. 2011 Jan;95(1):410-2. doi: 10.1016/j.fertnstert.2010.07.1042. Epub 2010 Aug 23.


The objective of this retrospective cross-sectional study was to evaluate the value of basal serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels as a predictor of ovarian response and pregnancy outcome in a donor egg program. The study showed that AMH was superior to other biomarkers of ovarian reserve in predicting low and high response in young women selected as oocyte donors, but that it was not predictive of embryo morphology or pregnancy outcome in the recipient population.
