LOS ALTOS, Calif., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Univfy, the pioneer in online fertility predictive analytics at www.univfy.com, launches two new programs--The Univfy IVF Success Program and Your Fertility--to expand its holistic platform for women and their partners to get on the quickest and healthiest path to having a baby.
The Univfy IVF Success Program is the only online program providing personalized analyses of both in vitro fertilization (IVF) success and IVF cost. IVF is the most effective fertility treatment but can cost $8,000 to $20,000 or more per treatment. Whether a couple is considering IVF treatment for the first time or pursuing further treatment, the Univfy IVF Success Program, built on Univfy's fertility analytics, a Stanford University technology, can help them make more confident decisions sooner by providing their personalized IVF success probability. The Univfy IVF Success Program provides access to all Univfy IVF Prediction Tests* and the Univfy IVF Cost Calculator* over a 12-month period for a one-time $100 fee.
Within a 12-month period, women who want to learn more about their fertility can assess their chances of IVF success and IVF cost based on their own health data and finance details. Fertility clinics offer IVF through many options, such as multi-cycle discount packages and IVF refund programs. The Univfy IVF Cost Calculator instantly combines the patient's individualized IVF success probability with the cost of IVF packages and financing details they are considering for an apples-to-apples comparison of their chances and cost of having an IVF baby in one, two, or three IVF treatments.
"The Univfy IVF Success Program delivers accurate, personalized analyses to help each woman make more confident decisions about her fertility," says Univfy Co-founder & CEO Mylene Yao, M.D., an Ob/Gyn and former Stanford University professor. "Life throws curveballs at you, and factors weighing into your fertility decisions can change over time. The ability to update your IVF success probability during a 12-month period can relieve some of the stress and uncertainty that comes from figuring out next steps, enabling couples to make decisions that are right for them and sooner. That's important since time is of essence when it comes to fertility."
Once enrolled in the Univfy IVF Success Program, users can take or re-take any of the following tests over a 12-month period:
-- For women thinking about doing their first IVF treatment, Univfy PreIVF analyzes their and their partners' health data to give a personalized probability of first-IVF treatment success. -- For women who have had one or more unsuccessful IVF treatments, Univfy PredictIVF analyzes their health data, including measures of IVF treatment response and embryo quality, to give a personalized probability of success in the next IVF treatment. -- The Univfy IVF Cost Calculator, featured in news media including The New York Times and Yahoo! Health, helps IVF patients learn which IVF financial package is right for them.
To help women and men take charge of their fertility, Univfy is also launching Your Fertility -- original, interactive multimedia fertility health content-- providing practical information for women and men at any point of their fertility path. In the coming weeks, Your Fertility will be rolling out fun and informative Fertility Guides, Fertility 101, Myths and Facts, and interactive tools to support women and their partners whether they are just starting to try to conceive, suffering from miscarriage(s), undergoing fertility treatments, or are pregnant from fertility treatment.
About Univfy: Univfy empowers women and their partners to take charge in building healthy families by providing highly accurate, personalized predictions for fertility treatment success and high-quality digital multimedia and interactive fertility health content.
Based in Los Altos, California, the company was founded in 2009 by former Stanford University professor Mylene Yao, M.D., and Stanford University professor Wing Wong, Ph.D.
From research at Stanford University and with leading fertility clinics in the U.S. and abroad, Univfy has developed highly accurate, personalized IVF prediction tests based on multiple fertility factors in a patient's health profile, such as ovarian reserve data, body mass index (a measure of height and weight), reproductive health history, and the male partner's health data. Univfy IVF Prediction Test results are shown to be 1,000 times more accurate than IVF success rates based on age alone. More than 50% of patients tested had a higher chance of IVF success than their age alone would suggest.
