FSH low AMH low

I'm confused as I was told last month my AMH was 5.1, which I know is well in the low category. I was expecting my FSH to be disastrous but it's just come back 3.1 and LH 5.5. From what I know this seems OK and I'm very happy.

I just can't understand how my AMH can be low and also my FSH as I thought they were both indicators of pretty much the same thing????

Has anyone else had the similar results?

FSH and AMH are not the same.The AMH is an indication of your ovarian reserve and how many follicles you will produce during stimulation. The FSH is about egg quality and how your body reacts to more FSH during stimulation. If you are young you can have low AMH and low FSH as your eggs will be better quality and your body is not resistant to FSH. When you get older your AMH lowers even more, but your FSH increases as your ovaries don't respond to it as well. For example I am 39 and I have very low AMH and high FSH as I am closer to the menopause. A high FSH is probably worse than a low AMH.
The FSH should be looked at together with estradiol as well as LH on day 2 as high estradiol could cause the FSH to lower. If your estradiol was let's say 300 then you would need to do the tests again as this may alter the FSH.

Your LH and FSH are excellent, so you don't need to worry. :thumbsup:
