Are you trying to conceive but failing with repeated abortions?
Low AMH may be one of the causes of your abortions. In this blog post, I am going to tell you how you can get pregnant naturally with low AMH levels.
What is low AMH?
Depleting ovarian reserve:
Low AMH level is an indication of depleting ovarian reserve. In other words, you may be heading for fertility problems or premature menopause.
Postponement of motherhood:
Nowadays more women are postponing their motherhood until the later age, giving priority to their career. But in the process, they are ignoring to check periodically, whether their eggs and its quality are dwindling or not. Overlooking this important issue of life may cause irreparable damage to their fertility.
If your age is less than 35 years and your AMH levels are below 22, it is an indication of depleting egg reserves, and you must take stock of the problem.
Simple blood test can give an accurate idea:
A blood test for assessing AMH levels gives you a fairly accurate idea of how your ovarian reserve is being affected. This blood test is simple that you can take any time during your menstrual cycle.

Why do I have low AMH levels?
There can be multiple reasons, either relating to impending infertility or other chronic diseases. Low AMH levels are a result of hormonal imbalance in your body. You have to consider this problem as overall deterioration of your health due to poor dietary and lifestyles you have been following.
Here are the some of the reasons for low AMH levels;
You may have;
Since low AMH is a signal for the underlying problem, you need to investigate it and find out why you have low AMH.
If you’re a woman over the age of 40 and if you have low AMH, you are heading towards menopause or premature menopause.
Why does low AMH cause infertility?
Signal of decreasing egg reserve:
Low AMH signals decreasing egg reserve. If you continue to neglect this, you may end up with no eggs. It doesn’t mean the quality of the egg is also affected.
What it means to you.
Since your egg quality is not affected, you may not have any problem of fertility. It is not true for everyone. In case, it is an age-related low AMH, the quality of egg may also be affected. If that is the case, you must be hurried to get pregnant.
Causes of low AMH
AMH levels are determined by the number of developing follicles in your ovaries. The most important determining factor in the number of follicles is age, as ovarian reserve diminishes over time. Ovarian reserve begins to decline in the mid to late 30s, and AMH (and hence ovarian reserve) levels tend to be low in women in their 40s.
Age is not always a factor in low AMH however. Some women continue to have high AMH levels into their 40s, while others have declining AMH levels in their 20s or 30s. This can be due to environmental factors such as cancer treatment, or down to inherited genetic causes. It is important to find out the age of menopause in your family because this is often a good guide to the rate of your own fertility decline. Click here to read more
Chances of getting pregnant with low AMH levels?
If you ask this question a conventional doctor, the answer would be that you have no chances of getting pregnant. If you ask the same question to an alternative therapist, the answer would be that you have a better chance of getting pregnant.
Then what is the truth?

Here is the real story…
I had what I call the ‘trilogy of infertility’ – over 40, high FSH, and super low AMH. On paper, my numbers looked terrible. My husband and I were told by a fertility specialist that because I was over 40, had high FSH and ‘virtually undetectable levels of AMH’, IVF was not an option for us; donor eggs would be our ONLY option. She told me “your reproductive years are over”. I will never forget that. She said there was a less than 5% chance that I could get pregnant naturally, and if I did, because I was over 40, it would likely be an abnormal egg that got fertilized, leading to ‘virtually 100% chance of miscarriage’. My initial reaction was, ‘I’m only 41, how can this be happening to me?’ I was just starting my family. Both my husband and I were left feeling devastated and deflated. We were discouraged and felt abandoned by western medicine.
I really wanted to conceive a sibling for my daughter. An easy way for me to up my fruit/veg intake was to have daily smoothies. I tried to include cooked veg with every meal and snack, I switched to almond milk, and chose to completely cut out coffee and added sugar. I walked on my lunch hour and rode my stationary bike at home after work. It wasn’t even that hard to make the changes, I just kept focussing on what it could help achieve – pregnancy.
I am now happy to say that I am pregnant – and it happened naturally! Read this story here

Can you really get pregnant with low AMH levels?
AMH is not a factor in Young women:
Low AMH levels in young healthy women do not seem to be a predictor of reduced fecundability. This is consistent with high egg quality in these young women, despite a reduced ovarian reserve. Conversely, women with high AMH levels had a 40% reduction in the FR, and this persisted even after exclusion of women with irregular cycles.
So what does all this mean? At present, routine measurement of AMH level as a “fertility check up” in young women is not useful. This study clearly shows that young women with low AMH levels did not have a decreased chance of conception compared to women with normal AMH levels. Click here to read more
