The modern woman tends to postpone her pregnancy after the age of 40 due to her professional life and achievements. However, this trend can lead to problems in fertility rates since the female ovarian reserve falls dramatically after the age of 37. Therefore, ovarian reserve markers such as antimüllerian hormfone (HAM) have been evaluated for being a potent clinical marker of ovarian reserve in female after 37 years old. The aim of this study was to present the antimüllerian hormone as the gold standard marker for ovarian reserve in women after 37 years old, indicating the importance of HAM in ovarian aging. It was done a review of the current literature regarding HAM and postponement of pregnancy through scientific articles in indexed databases during 2016 to March 2017. The study demonstrated that successful results for a pregnancy after 37 years of age are highly dependent on the ovarian reserve, and HAM has been shown to be the best marker for these results. The study also found that HAM could be a good predictor for menopause. We concluded that HAM should be included in the protocols of fertility hormones for women who want to be pregnant after 37 years of age, as well as could be a predict for menopause.
