Fertility is nature’s only mechanism for generating a baby. In women, this issue can become sensitive due to some factors, including age. Most of the times when a battery of tests is requested to check the general state of the woman’s fertility, one of the tests requested is the anti-Mullerian. They are usually requested by doctors responsible for in vitro fertilization who want to know how the patient’s ovarian reserve is doing before doing an ovulation induction.

Recently, a study carried out in Australia reported that around 68% of anti-Mullerian tests done using the old technique, which has been extinct for more than 3 years, can be prone to error and cause a real panic in patients who undergo tests to check their condition. fertility. The researchers analyzed about 400 tests done using the technique used previously and compared it with some of the recent technique. In this study, doctors concluded that 68% of the cases, the ovarian reserve was underestimated, that is, the examination did not take into account certain aspects of the woman’s ovarian reserve and simply gave an inaccurate result, in the vast majority of times for less than the real one. When reviewed, the tests showed that the majority of cases of women who took home sadness for not having a good ovarian reserve, could indeed become pregnant with good quality and quantity of ovulation.

About 392 women who conceived naturally even after having an unsatisfactory examination in the eyes of the reference, however the fertility set favored this pregnancy to happen. The doctors’ warning is clear: a number of factors must be taken to determine whether or not this woman can ovulate , whether or not she has enough ovarian reserve. However, not only this examination must be taken into account. Just like FSH, LH and other hormones responsible for ovulation. In fact, when in doubt, there are other tests such as FSH for example. He can give an estimate, as well as the anti-Mullerian, if the eggs are in good quantity or not. But they must not be taken literally.

This is because that specific cycle may have a low amount of eggs to be stimulated, but in other cycles, the ovular stimulation can be much greater. If in doubt, a fertility specialist should be sought, although any doctor may order this test. A good interpretation of the results can make all the difference in the fertilization process and the patient’s tranquility.
