Iranian researchers studied the AMH level of 266 women, aged 20-49, and developed a statistical model to predict menopause. They presented this data at the ESHRE meeting in Rome. Click here for the press release.
The authors acknowledge that they need more data to confirm their findings. Other experts suggest that AMH has not been that accurate in prior studies and that fertility falls long before menopause, thus the usefulness must be proven.
I would echo the critics and suggest that other biological models in reproductive medicine have been less than accurate, so we need confirmatory data. Nevertheless, if confirmed, I could see this as very useful for counseling. We are constantly trying to decide if we can take a few months to try lower-tech and lower success rate treatments and when a woman needs to get moving with attempts to conceive.
The trick is not to become complacent and put off fertility attempts because of a test with variable accuracy only to find that you have missed your window.
