Amy Beckley had trouble conceiving for over three years, she did what many women do: saved up thousands of dollars and pursued in-vitro fertilization treatment. After being blessed with a son, Amy knew she wanted to grow her family–but she just wasn’t sure she could handle the physical and emotional challenge of another round of IVF. So she decided to take a step back.
With a PhD in Pharmacology and expertise in hormone signaling, she started tracking her own hormone levels. In doing so, she discovered that she had low progesterone levels — which was causing her to lose pregnancy after pregnancy. Empowered by this knowledge, she went to her doctor and got a prescription for hormone supplements – $200 worth to be exact.
With these supplements, she was able to conceive without the help of IVF and maintain a healthy pregnancy. After her daughter was born, she made it her mission to help others – founding MFB Fertility, Inc. and inventing the Proov test in her own basement to allow women to track progesterone in five minutes, at home.
