The Assisting Nature College of Reproduction in collaboration with Assisting Nature Assisted Reproduction Unit under social responsibility held an information event for the public, at the Mediterranean Cosmos shopping center, about the decline of Fertility byAge.
The public was informed of the prognostic fertility indicator, the hormone-AMH-.
The woman is born with a finite number of eggs (1,000,000-2,000,000) that are sufficient until the age of 50, but 3-4% of women have fewer eggs and go to menopause earlier without knowing it.
Now there is a blood test – hormone AMH – produced by follicles reflecting our ovarian reserves. Just because they are related to the egg pool, blood tests measure AMH concentrations and can be used as a predictive tool for the ability of a woman to get pregnant.
As the woman’s age increases, AMH decreases, reflecting a reduction in the number of eggs in the ovary. AMH levels indirectly indicate the biological age of a woman and the chances of automatic conception. So if our AMH is low in proportion to our age, we should turn to the specialist and discuss the case of eggs cryopreservation (egg freezing), which can be thawed and used later when we want to create a family.
There is a good correlation between the measurement of AMH in peripheral blood, the number of follicles in the ovaries measured by transvaginal ultrasound (by a specialized reproductive gynecologist) and the age.
Theultrasound evaluation of the ovaries and the measurement of the AMH hormone are necessary predictive fertility indicators.
Our company will continue to fight the birth rate as our country’s national goal.
