Nicole Junkermann, NJF Capital founder, presents an A-Z of Femtech – a series of short videos focused on specific areas of interest in this hugely important and exciting field.
One in seven UK couples experience difficulty conceiving, with a round of IVF costing up to £5,000.
It’s not surprising then that Femtech devices and apps which focus on reproductive health have become extremely popular.
Wearable tech like bracelets allow women to monitor and understand their menstrual cycle.
These tools measure physiological signs like temperature, so a woman can identify her fertile period and make an informed decision about using contraception.
Established apps are now looking to extend their offering to supporting women through the end of fertility – the menopause.
By helping women to manage their fertility better, Femtech is increasingly giving them control of their lives.
