Circulating Anti Mullerian hormone (AMH) represents the total number of granulosa cells in the ovaries and is therefore a direct measure of the number of growing follicles within the ovaries. The close agreement of the main commercial assays for circulating AMH is allowing improved validation of the test in numerous circumstances. Consequently, it can be explored in all circumstances where ovarian activity may be relevant, and thereby bring improved guidance to the choices doctors and patients need to make in their reproductive lives. Apart from numerous aspects of ovarian stimulation, the main areas of impact are in endometriosis and the menopause. The best advice approach requires use of this evidence in many circumstances, and the future will see its measurement on a widespread basis.
