My AMH level came back at 29.2 NG/ML so incredibly high. Haven't heard back from my doctor as to what that means yet.

They were worse the first few months off BC but now pretty normal, just light. I'm 28
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Been off for 5 months now
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 2 years ago.
A high AMH correlates with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which is usually associated with irregular or absent periods. If you have normal periods, the high AMH probably doesn't mean too much. It's certainly better than a low AMH.
I'm assuming that you have the units correct, since AMH can also be expressed in pmol/l, which gives higher numbers.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have researched the units to make sure. I've only seen most PCOS ranges near 15 give or take a few so I though it was a little weird. All other tests are in normal range except my follicular stage 17-OH progesterone which was 134 I believe.
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 2 years ago.
I'm not sure what a high 17-OH progesterone means. Never ordered one.
