Better fertility research

We’re on a mission to uncover the "why" behind infertility and work toward a future where every person with ovaries can predict their chances of getting pregnant.

Here's why we're modernizing fertility research

Today, research is reactive

Most of the data we have around fertility comes from patients in infertility clinics. That means we have little insight into fertility health earlier in life.

There’s a gender gap

Here’s a crazy stat: in 2019 alone, there were 1,003 studies about erectile dysfunction (!) compared to 178 studies dedicated to female infertility.

And… there isn’t enough of a focus on fertility

We’re seeing more funding in women’s health and wellness at large but fertility research is lagging far behind.

Estimated NIH funding in 2020

Modern Fertility research is proactive

Every Modern Fertility customer can opt-in to include their anonymized hormone levels in research. If you aren't a customer yet, you can contribute to closing the fertility research gap through surveys.

We publish an annual Modern State of Fertility report, have numerous papers published in peer-reviewed science journals, and have presented our IRB-approved studies at The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Annual Conference.

“My excitement about Modern Fertility’s commitment to research is our ability to contribute to a greater understanding of normal reproductive physiology. This type of research gives women more insight into their bodies while also advancing the scientific community. Most research studies investigate disease — we’re fundamentally trying to better understand health.”

Nataki Douglas, MD, PhD. Chair of the Modern Fertility Medical Advisory Board, OB/GYN, and Reproductive Endocrinoligist
