Ferring Collaboration with Digital Health Innovators WOOM Aims to Help More People Build Families Faster
The WOOM ovulation and fertility app, currently available in Spanish - with registered users across Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina and Peru - is able to analyse a woman’s menstrual cycle, lifestyle factors and biometrics to help couples better understand their bodies to either help conceive naturally or go and see a specialist as soon as possible. The app was developed in partnership with medical professionals.
As part of the partnership with Ferring, a test group of 500 WOOM users from across Spain and/or Latin America will be assessed via a bespoke Fertility Programme. The programme creates a personalised journey that will help couples know faster if they have any fertility challenges and connect potential parents with local fertility services, helping unlock the door to earlier fertility treatment intervention.
‘With over 50 years of heritage in reproductive medicine, we have the expertise to interpret trends captured through the WOOM app, and to use those insights to enable more people to navigate their fertility journeys quickly and easily,’ said Klaus Dugi, Chief Medical Officer, Ferring Pharmaceuticals. ‘On a macro level, it’s our hope that this collaboration will positively and measurably impact the future of fertility access and treatment, so that more people worldwide can build a family.’
‘We created WOOM in response to our personal experiences of becoming pregnant and by understanding the large need of having relevant information that you can trust and that is applied to you,’ said Laurence Fontinoy Co-founder and CEO of WOOM, ‘We already have over 600,000 users across Spanish speaking countries and, by collaborating with Ferring, a renowned leader in the fertility space, we hope to expand our reach to help more people achieve their dream of becoming parents sooner.’
