There is a pressing need for better birth control innovation due to the limited options for non-hormonal birth control. Hormonal birth control methods, while effective, can have side effects such as mood changes, headaches, changes in libido, endocrine disorder, impaired glucose tolerance, and abnormal liver function. The current options for non-hormonal birth control such as condoms, diaphragms, and cervical caps, can be difficult to use consistently and correctly, reducing their overall effectiveness. In addition, many individuals prefer long-acting, reversible methods that do not require daily or frequent attention, such as the copper IUD, which can be an extremely painful procedure with unfavorable side effects. It is well past time that there was a safe, minimally invasive, long term, reversible and highly reliable option for individuals looking to take back control of their reproductive health. The idea behind OvuMap is to use continuous monitoring sensor technology that already exists for managing a variety of diseases and conditions, such as diabetes, and use it to accurately measure various hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle. Real time monitoring will be used to track spikes in LH and FSH that indicate when someone is ovulating and then displayed in a convenient mobile app. OvuMap can be utilized by anyone who ovulates, reaching a wider audience than typical birth control or family planning methods.
