Fertility App Promises Pregnancy, Or Your Money Back

The Glow app is designed for women who are trying to get pregnant.

Many apps are geared towards health care, but most are focused on nutrition and fitness. Startup Glow has just released an iPhone app designed to help women who are trying to have a baby.

The Glow app includes daily fertility recommendations, reminders and suggestions to help women conceive, and calendar features to help women track their cycles and their next fertile window. Users can input their personal data and even sync data with a mirror app for their partners. Users can type in how they’re feeling to keep their partners aware. The app will then provide tips and suggestions as to how their partners can support the women.


The app also allows the users to participate in Glow First, the world’s first fertility funding community according to the Glow website. Participants pay $50 a month. If at the end of ten months they don’t get pregnant naturally, they get their money back and a share of the funds of program participants who also did not conceive. They can use the money to fund their fertility treatment.

Aside from helping women get pregnant, the app is also a way of gathering anonymous research data. Glow was founded by Max Levchin,  co-founder of PayPal, and other technology veterans.

The app is available for free on iTunes. The developers are also working on an Android version.
