New App Aims To Help Women Struggling With Fertility

A new mobile app known as Conceivable can help women struggling with fertility problems attempt to identify causes and solutions.

The subscription-based program is personalized to each user and works to identify underlying factors that could be contributing to each woman’s set of problems. According to Conceivable founder and CEO Kirsten Karchmer, many women don’t realize they have a short cycle of less than 26 days, which is shorter than some other women, and therefore a 50 percent less likelihood of conceiving than women with longer cycles.

The app takes into account 50 different factors that make it unique. It also offers personalized meal plans, recipes and shop lists as well as mind and body exercises, stress management plans and lifestyle recommendations. The average subscription costs $199 per month, which is far below the cost a fertility clinic might charge for such personalized services.

For those who would rather chose an alternative to this new app, there are a number of other fertility apps available for men and women. One social media driven app is the Pink Pad, which allows users to keep track of symptoms, mood, menstrual flow and fertility parameters. The app also allows users to access a home and profile page as well as exporting and calendar syncing your data.

iCycle Beads is a similar, but more complex, app that uses the CycleBeads system: a proprietary fertility system based on the Standard Days Method. Each day of a woman’s cycle is color coded for fertile and infertile days, then each bead is a put together in a circle representing a woman’s cycle. Finally, the app color codes a calendar for the user according to her fertility status. The app can even send email reports about each cycle.
