    About our Guest: 
    Amy Beckley, PhD, is the founder of Proov and the inventor of the first and only FDA-cleared test to confirm ovulation at home. When Amy and her husband tried to get pregnant, they suffered through several years of infertility, including seven miscarriages and two rounds of IVF – the second of which resulted in her son. When Amy decided she wanted another child (without another round of IVF), she used her background in hormone signaling to uncover a problem with ovulation which caused a progesterone deficiency (also called a luteal phase defect). With the help of an inexpensive progesterone supplement, Amy and her husband were blessed with their daughter. Amy invented the original PdG test in her basement to help women identify problems with ovulation at home, and started selling them in plastic bags on Amazon with a $50 logo off Upwork.
