Motherhood is the most enriching and satisfying phase for any woman but with the growing cases of infertility many of them are expressing concerns. One of the major aspects of being able to bear a child relies on correct planning of a baby vis-Ă -vis a womanâ€™s menstrual cycle. Apart from paying regular visits to the doctor, you can now download the Glow app, designed to monitor a womanâ€™s fertility cycle.
Compatible on iPhones, the Glow app aids pregnancy by indicating the optimal days in which it is expected to get pregnant. The app works in a very simple or rather predictable manner. It combines the calendar and data seeking questions around various pregnancy-related aspects like fertility cycles, emotional state of mind, womanâ€™s generic health and also the kind and quality of intercourse the woman has had.
Though the app can be downloaded for free, it is also attached to a pay-in program. It can be subscribed by paying just $50 per month. And if a woman fails to conceive the natural way at the end of 10 months, the money is refunded. She also gets a share of funds from the participants who have conceived towards her fertility treatment. Considering these treatments incur extensive costs but are not covered by the insurance companies, this crowd-funding service can prove to be a boon.
While there have been path breaking researches in the field of healthcare, so far, the area of fertility has witnessed very minimal research. The little research, which is available in this regard, is largely inclined towards nutrition and fitness. For instance, you cannot find any conclusive data around the link between mental health and conceptions. The founders of the app also aim to collate significant data in this regard through the information gathered by the app.
The app will encourage sensible and intelligent decision-making, thereby, increasing the chances of fertility. The funding option will also open the prospects of managing treatment options for other elective health problems.
