Fertility

OvaScience wants to transform what we know about a woman’s biology and reshape the conversation around fertility.

Think of eight women you know. Research suggests that at least one of them is facing fertility challenges. The rate of female infertility is sobering – and yet the topic is often avoided and sometimes secretive.

This avoidance has led to a lack of awareness about female fertility in society today. Most people have no idea how common fertility challenges are for women or how daunting it can be to overcome these obstacles.

Female fertility is a vastly underserved area. There are not enough options today that specifically address female fertility, egg health or egg production. The success of in vitro fertilization (IVF), the current standard of care, is highly dependent on the woman’s age, but overall has an average success rate of 30%.

OvaScience wants to transform what we know about a woman’s biology and reshape the conversation around infertility, while helping women around the world by developing new fertility treatments. How are we doing that? Through extraordinary innovation.
