Ivf Prognosis based on FSH and AMH levels

IVF Prognosis
FSH normal
FSH abnormal (high)
AMH normal
AMH abnormal (low)
Very Reduced

This table summarizes oocyte production based on (day 3) FSH and AMH (Anti Mullerian Hormone ) values. It appears , based on the study (referenced below) that AMH is the better predictor.  Please note that this table is relevant up to the age of 42yo. After 42 the disparity between FSH and AMH does not seem to matter and patients with "good" FSH levels do better , regardless of AMH values.
