Proov tests are fertility tracking tests. They are used for monitoring ovulation at home. These tests measure one or more hormones. These hormones can predict and confirm ovulation. They can also assess when a woman will enter into menopause. Tracking these hormones can help a woman understand if she is ovulating. They can also help identify problems that could be preventing pregnancy.
This study is to determine if certain patterns of hormone levels over the cycle are correlated with different pregnancy outcomes.
Research will be conducted on cycles tracked using the Proov App from March 2020 until April 2022.
