Pregnancy, Miscarriages & IVF- How Scientist Dr. Amy Beckley Is Giving Couples A Fighting Chance

Pregnancy, Miscarriages & IVF- How Scientist  Dr. Amy Beckley Is Giving Couples A Fighting Chance

I am hoping that some of you see the topic of this podcast and breathe a sigh of relief that it doesn't affect you. Infertility can be devastating for couples wanting children of their own. I am, however, really excited to bring you the information that could help you, your loved ones and future generations to come.  If you know people who are thinking of starting a family, trying to start a family or are struggling already with getting pregnant- please listen and share the content. This podcast also hits on a number of different health concerns and scientific studies that involve both men and woman alike.

Joining us from Denver Colorado is Dr. Amy Beckley, a PHD scientist and infertility veteran who struggled herself getting pregnant and who experienced several miscarriages as well. 

She is the inventor and founder of PROOV, a first of its kind at home progesterone kit. It’s an innovative new option for women trying to gain more of an understanding around their reproductive health and be empowered with data about their body that they never could have gotten in the comfort of their homes before.

She has a PhD in Pharmacology and expertise in hormone signaling . She began tracking her own hormone levels at home and discovered that she had low progesterone—which was causing her to lose pregnancy after pregnancy. Progesterone is not a topic often discussed and we break down a number of reasons why this is the case.

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, her mission was clear—to empower women with vital knowledge that could help in their ability to conceive. She founded MFB Fertility, Inc. and invented the Proov test in her own basement, which now allows women to track their own progesterone in just five minutes, at home.
