After the challenges of having a successful pregnancy, I got my fertility tested at an IVF clinic. At the time, I was leading digital clinical trials for Sanofi, and was frustrated to see how analog fertility evaluation was: the choices were between incomplete at-home testing, or invasive and expensive in-clinic options. I wanted to create something that I could trust, and use myself.” Turtle Health Founder & CEO Amy Zwanziger
