AMH is Anti-Mullerian Hormone, it the hormone that produced by Granulosa cells; which surround each and every egg in a woman's ovary. Therefore, the more eggs the more granulosa cells and obviously the more AMH produced. Hence, it is very important for women who try to conceive to maintain or improve the amount of AMH produced in their body. 

Low AMH level is below 9 pmol/L (4 ng/mL), although this is greatly variable. Egg quality will vary from woman to woman. Some with a low AMH level can still produce a good egg, conceive and have a healthy pregnancy with Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine therapies in conjunction with conventional medicine.

How to increase your AMH levels

Supplements such as DHEA has shown to increase ovarian follicles and increase the chances of pregnancy. I've observed this in my practice with women having an increased antral follicle count after taking DHEA. 

Acupuncture for Low AMH - diminished ovarian reserve (DOR)?

Research has shown that acupuncture may regulate AMH levels in women, improve their ovarian reserve and chances of getting pregnant. Electroacupuncture(EA) may modulate reproductive hormone levels and the effects seem to persist for at least 12?weeks after treatment with no significant side effects. EA may improve the ovarian reserve of patients with DOR. (Source:https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27177929)

There are two hormones that play relevant roles in women's body. These hormones include Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Imbalance in one of these two hormones can result in the following conditions:

Polycystic ovaries:

High in AMH may result in PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).


Too high in FSH in relation to LH (Luteinizing Hormone) will result in pre-menopause.
