Summary

The purpose of this study is to have a better understanding of the normal blood levels of AMH in females from 0-18 years of age and how the blood AMH levels correspond to a female's reproductive development.

Description

Anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) is a chemical in the body that is found in the blood that can estimate the ability of a female to have her own children. It is widely used in adult female cancer patients to predict the onset of menopause and/or the inability to have children that can be associated with chemotherapy and/or radiation treatment. Normal blood levels of AMH are better understood in adults than in children and adolescents. The purpose of this study is to have a better understanding of the normal blood levels of AMH in females from 0-18 years of age and how the blood AMH levels correspond to a female's reproductive development. With a better understanding of normal AMH levels in children, we may be able to better assess a girl's risk of not being able to have children if she is a cancer patient, and may be able to offer her and her family options to increase the chances of having her own children.
