I was pregnant in January. I was feeling all symptoms of being pregnant. When I was undergone SCG test, It was negative. Even my blood report also shows absence of HCG. As I am feeling pregnancy symptoms, I continued to do HCG tests for 3 .5months. During this tenure, I had almost no monthly periods.(only sometimes spots seen). I consulted Gynaecologist for this problems. I had undergone sonography test two times. It was showing some blood clots. Doctor suggested to do Anti Mullerian hormone test for uneven/ stopped period for long time. He also gave tablets for period which was consumed by me and I had period for four days in first week of April. AMH test showed worrying result. It was showing value- 0.7. A lower normal range is 0.7 to .0.9. Doctor suggested to complete three month course of OVARUS (75mg) tables. Is there any worries about lower AMH ? What is the reason for this problem? I have thyroid problem and I am taking Eltroxine 100mg since last 7 years.
