Pregnancy chances measured by new test

Women trying to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization may soon have access to a test that determines their chances of success in advance, reports Upsala Nya Tidning.

Researchers at Uppsala University and Carl von Linnékliniken have developed a new blood test to measure anti-mullerian hormone (AMH), known to be an indicator of fertility.

Their study found that women with high AMH levels in their blood were successful in one out of every three attempts to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization.

Low levels reduced their chances to one in seven.
