I suffer from polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD). All hormone levels are normal but my AMH level is high 8.5ng/ml. Is this very high to conceive? My HSG level came back normal and my gynecologist prescribed Metital instead of Metformin. How effective is Metital? Please provide your suggestions.



The Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) is secreted in the ovaries and doctors monitor it to evaluate how a woman’s ovaries are functioning, depending on her age. It is very common to see high AMH levels in patients who suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Take heart however, because you can conceive despite having a high AMH level.
Your doctor would have suggested the change in medicine keeping your particular condition in mind. Have faith in your doctor, as he or she may know your status best. However, if you wish, you can identify a specialist gynaecological healthcare institution like CloudNine that specializes in treatment of PCOS and get a second opinion.
