I am turning 40 this year and have pcos. Can you explain why my AMH is still very high? 12 years ago it was 10 ng/ml, now it’s 6.85. I also used to have 15 follicles on each ovary, now I have between 20-25.
Does this mean I will have late onset menopause? I am particularly concerned about my risk of ovarian and breast cancer as late onset menopause and pcos are both risk factors. I know that oopherectomies are not usually done prophylactically but I’m having major concerns about my cancer risk. My RE also suggests I go a round of ivf but mentioned, not conceiving after fertility treatment is also a risk factor. At this point, I feel like all these risks make it inevitable that I will get ovarian cancer. Please help.
Pcos, AMH and menopause?
It ism true thatvwo9men with PCOS have an increased risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. However, this is by no means a great risk. You need to have regular check-up evaluations at least yearly, but I would not become paranoid about this. In the vast majority of cases it is not a pr4oblem.G-d bless!
