Why are we doing this?

Since forever, the male body has been the “medical norm”. Only in 1993 did the primary federal agency for supporting medical science decide that clinical trials should be run on both men and women. This means that modern medicine is based on research almost exclusively done on male bodies, with severe implications on women’s health outcomes:

We overmedicate women

Most drugs have a 'one-size-fits-all' dosage despite obvious sex differences e.g. body fat composition. A study found that over 96% of common drugs are prescribed to women in too high doses leading to excess side effects.

Fertility treatment takes too long

Research suggests only 55% become pregnant after 8 cycles of treatment (around 12-14 months). Meanwhile the financial and emotional burden of treatment and long waiting lists also prolong treatment. This is not good enough.

The success rates in fertility treatment are too low

The highest possible success rate per treatment cycle is between 5-30%. Because of this, most women need many rounds of treatment to obtain a pregnancy. There is a direct link between time spent in treatment and issues with mental health.

Too many people are suffering from mental health issues

80% of people in fertility treatment experience issues with their mental health and 30% drop out due to this. The stress of not being able to fulfil the wish for a child has been associated with emotional difficulties such as depression, anxiety and social isolation.
