GODOY-MORALES, Héctor S. et al. Antimüllerian hormone prevalence in Latin women treated at a fertility center in Mexico. Perinatol. Reprod. Hum. [online]. 2021, vol.35, n.1, pp.10-16.  Epub June 06, 2022. ISSN 2524-1710.


Antimüllerian hormone (AMH) has been used as a marker of ovarian reserve, which helps predict success. It is unknown if values from other countries are applicable to Mexico.


To determine the AMH values in our population to graph them according to age groups and evaluate their behavior.


Observational, descriptive, retrospective, and cross-sectional study of patients from 2008 to 2018, with a AMH level report excluding patients with diseases that alter their level, analyzing by age groups in a laboratory.


450 patients of 36.93 years old, the range of the AMH value was from 0.003 ng/ml to 9.4 ng/ml, with a mean of 1.5, with an annual decrease from 40 years of age (0.1-0.3). Spearman’s correlation of -436 (p < 0.000) with a slight association between age and AMH level, but it was linear (p < 0.000).


AMH is useful and serves to give personalized recommendations, as well as basis of epidemiological studies in favor of an individualized medicine.
