48.5 million couples can't get pregnant globally.
Only 5% of couples can afford fertility treatments. We decided to do something about it.
How it all started...
When our founder, Kirsten Karchmer, read a study that showed that less than 5% of couples could afford fertility treatments she decided she would dedicate the rest of her life to democratizing access to fertility care and overall health for all people with periods.
Leveraging her 2 decades of extensive clinical experience with over 10,000 women, she set out to build a software fertility solution that was 1/100 the cost of IVF and as effective.
She realized that the most effective treatments come from first identifying the underlying causes, and then building a personalized intervention based on the best of Western medicine, Chinese medicine, nutrition, mind-body, behavioral health, and technology and then built an application to deliver the most personalized experience on the planet.
When the Conceivable trials outperformed her clinic's outcomes, she decided close her 3 large clinics and dedicate herself to bringing affordable fertility care to the world.
