About this test’s biomarkers
A blood biomarker is a substance or characteristic that can be measured in a person’s blood to indicate the presence or severity of a disease or condition.

Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone that plays a key role in egg production and ovulation in women, and the production of sperm in men.
Luteinizing hormone (LH)
Luteinizing hormone (LH) is a hormone that works together with FSH, and it is responsible for reproduction. In men, it helps in the production of testosterone, while in women it helps in regulating the menstrual cycle and ovulation.
Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH)
Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is a protein hormone that is produced by the cells in the ovarian follicles. It plays an important role in the development of the female reproductive system and helps regulate the growth and development of ovarian follicles during a woman's reproductive life. As a biomarker it is used to check ovarian reserve which refers to the number and quality of a woman's remaining eggs, and also it can give an indication of woman's fertility.
