At a Glance

Why Get Tested?

In women, to evaluate ovarian function and fertility; sometimes in the evaluation of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or to evaluate the effectiveness of ovarian cancer treatment; in an infant, to evaluate the presence of external sex organs that are not clearly male or female (ambiguous genitalia) and/or function of the testicles in an infant boy

When to Get Tested?

When a health practitioner wants to evaluate a woman's fertility, predict onset of menopause, or suspects PCOS; sometimes prior to some assisted reproductive procedures; periodically when a woman is undergoing treatment for an AMH-producing ovarian cancer; when it is suspected that the testicles of an infant boy are absent or not functioning properly
