Amy Beckley, a doctor of pharmacology, struggled with fertility for more than three years. Ovulation tests told her when she was likely to conceive but retaining the fertilized egg was another story. Her hunch was that she had low progesterone, but her doctor said there was no way to measure that without her coming into his office every cycle. She decided to move forward with IVF instead.
Anyone who has gone down that road knows how expensive and life-altering it is, full of medical interventions and unwanted mood changes. Though Beckley gave birth to the baby of her dreams, she never wanted IVF again!
Acting on her own hunch (and doctorate degree!) she began treating herself with progesterone supplements to get pregnant with number two. Success! After that baby was born, Beckley set out to invent an at-home progesterone test.
Now women hoping to conceive can use an ovulation test followed by Proov (also a urine-based test) to be sure they have the progesterone level to sustain a pregnancy. If they consistently find themselves low, they can talk to their doctor about supplements.
