Researchers from the Universities of St. Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow have just discovered a promising new test that may soon be able to accurately predict how much longer a woman will be fertile before menopause arrives. The test is just a starting point, but could turn out to be an important discovery for women who wait until they're older to have kids. The test essentially has figured out what the normal range of AMH (anti-Mullerian Hormone) levels are vs. what non-normal levels are. AMH is a reliable indicator of how active a woman's ovaries are throughout her life. The researchers hope that this test might be able to help young women figure out if their menopause will arrive earlier or later. Of course, that could help women decide what's a safe age for them to wait until, before deciding to become pregnant. Looking for more information about fertility?:
