The Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) is a hormone that is produced in the ovaries of women, and plays a significant role in the development and function of reproductive organs. Currently, AMH is mainly measured to estimate the ovarian reserve (how many egg cells are left in women), but there is growing evidence that AMH could also be interesting for the detection and diagnosis of PCOS. However, larger studies and more evidence is required to confirm this.
