1 in 8 couples battle infertility, and we are one of them.
After years of struggle and failed rounds of IVF, we developed MyVitro to help others take control of their fertility injections and medications. Our mission is to provide practical support for the daily needs of those self-administering fertility treatments.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is more common than many realize—there were 284,385 cycles performed in 2017 alone—and that’s just within the U.S. Thousands of dollars worth of drugs, needles, pens, and supplies arrived on our doorstep prior to our cycle. Our first reaction was “what are we supposed to do with all of this?” We ended up storing this very expensive, self-injected medication, inside an old clothes hamper.
With thousands of products on the market to organize our shoes, our toiletries, our pantry, why wasn’t their something specific for fertility treatments? That’s when we had the idea for our IVF Organizer.
There continues to be a sense of stigma and shame tied to infertility, which means there are many of us who need support and don’t know where to find it. We designed our IVF Organizer to help women going through these treatments feel more supported, more in control of their health, and more confident in their injections. Our hope is that we will offer women a little more peace of mind when undergoing fertility treatments, through practical solutions to organize their medication.
