Several studies have subsequently confirmed reduced AMH in survivors of adult and childhood cancer, with some of these finding clear relationships between the degree of loss of AMH and the gonadotoxicity of the treatment involved. 23 AMH has also been used to show the marked gonadotoxicity of radiotherapy involving the ovaries. In general, comparable data have been obtained using AFC,15,20,27,28 although the literature on this is substantially sparser. 2 Prospective Analyses There are now a growing number of studies that have prospectively assessed AMH as a marker of gonadotoxicity, thus making it possible to use pretreatment samples to show the fall in AMH in individuals, rather than requiring age-matched controls.

FSH is clearly of value in diagnosing the menopause or POI, but it is of lesser value in detecting women of a low ovarian reserve. This is to be expected given its physiological role in selection of the dominant follicle and the later stages of antral follicle growth, thus being central to the ovulatory function of the ovary rather than the regulation of the early stages of follicle growth. Current interest focuses around the use of measurement of circulating anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), and ultrasound assessment of the number of small (generally 2À10 mm diameter) antral follicles: the antral follicle count (AFC).
