Ovarian volume has been utilized as an ovarian reserve marker, a diagnostic method for poly cystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), as well as risk of ovarian tumors as well as a part of examining normal as well as abnormal pelvis. Earlier the author had discussed the role of ovarian volume in case of PCOS with regard to Polycystic Ovary Morphology (PCOM) and classification of PCOS and how it reduces with age [1]. Villa., et al. showed that mean Ovarian volume (MOV) > 5.6 in adolescent girls enhanced the chances of developing PCOS by 15 times [2]. Examination of the ovarian reserve and evaluating the response to exogenous hormones related to ovarian hyperstimulation as well as assisted reproductive technology (ART) constitute essential components for obtaining success following fertility therapy [3]. Measuring anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) has aided in giving innovative knowledge on these topics in current years, but AMH itself possesses limitations in view of marked variation during the menstrual cycle, various assays do not measure the similar AMH levels and particular samples might behave separately based on the assay [4,5].
