Bio

Amy had trouble conceiving for over 3 years, she did what many women do: saved up thousands of dollars and pursued in-vitro fertilization treatment. After being blessed with a son, Amy knew she wanted to grow her family–but she just wasn’t sure she could handle the physical and emotional challenge of another round of IVF. So she decided to take a step back. With a PhD in Pharmacology and her expertise in hormone signaling, she started tracking her own hormone levels. In doing so, she discovered that she had low progesterone levels — which was causing her to lose pregnancy after pregnancy. Empowered by this knowledge, she went to her doctor and got a prescription for hormone supplements. With these supplements, she was able to conceive without the help of IVF and maintain a healthy pregnancy. After her daughter was born, she made it her mission to help others by inventing the Proov test in her own basement to allow women to track progesterone in five minutes, at home.
