BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the correlation between controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) outcome parameters and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) serum levels during in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment in women with varying ovarian reserve levels.
METHODS: Prospective study of 46 women undergoing GnRH-antagonist short protocol for IVF. Participants included women with low ovarian reserve (N.=11), normoreserve (N.=16), and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS; N.=19). AMH was measured on menstrual cycle day 1-3 (basal AMH), on the day of GnRH-antagonist administration (AMH-GnRH), on the day of hCG administration (AMH-hCG), and in follicular fluid on the day of oocyte retrieval (AMH-FF).
RESULTS: Basal AMH was significantly correlated (P<0.001) with antral follicle count and number of follicles >11mm on hCG day (P<0.05). Both basal AMH and AMH-GnRH were significantly correlated (P<0.05) with the number of oocytes retrieved and metaphase II. AMH-hCG was correlated with top quality embryos (P=0.04). No correlations were found between COH outcome parameters and AMH-FF.
CONCLUSIONS: Basal AMH serum concentration was the strongest predictor of oocyte yield. AMH concentration at the mid-follicular phase was also a good predictor of oocyte yield and this marker was the only useful ovarian reserve indicator during the follicle growth process to predict IVF outcomes. AMH-hCG levels appear to predict embryo quality. AMH levels during the COH can provide valuable data to help individualize treatment and predict COH results.
