Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
AMH test is done to measure the amount of growing follicles in the ovaries. Women with low levels of AMH indicate low levels of follicles and produce lower number of eggs. If the FSH levels are normal and other hormones are within a normal range then there is no need to worry. It does not indicate a premature ovarian failure.
You can take DHEA tablets to improve your chances of conception but these need to be taken after consulting your infertility specialist.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
DHEA can improve your chances of fertility if taken in a dose of 50mg thrice daily for 6 weeks. But this should be taken only after consulting your infertility specialist.
Getting pregnant naturally is less likely but not impossible. It is best to go for IVF to improve your chances of conception without wasting time.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
