Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Antimüllerian hormone (AMH) and other markers of ovarian reserve were assessed to determine their predictive value with respect to treatment outcome. In a multivariate regression analysis, AMH was found to be predictive of the number of oocytes and the number of embryos, but not of embryo quality or the chance of a pregnancy, after IVF/ICSI.
