Navigating the Reproductive Care Divide: A Closer Look at Access and Choices

Cycle Clarity SolutionIn the vast landscape of reproductive healthcare in the United States, a stark reality unfolds—a significant number of women face challenges in accessing essential services. With a population of 72 million women in the US of reproductive age, it’s disheartening to discover that 25 million of them lack adequate access to reproductive care due to geographical location alone. Delving deeper, we find that 18 million reside in regions without any Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) provider at all with an additional 7 million living in areas where the choice in reproductive care is limited.

ART has revolutionized the landscape of fertility treatment, offering hope to those struggling to conceive. However, many barriers exist preventing this population from accessing the reproductive care that they deserve. One obstacle of note is the geographical hindrance or the lack of reproductive services in these areas, impeding the aspirations of those seeking to build families, a basic human right. This highlights the need for strategic healthcare technologies to overcome such geographical barriers and increase access to affordable fertility care, such as Cycle Clarity Connections.

This lack of options can lead to compromised patient autonomy, hindering the ability of women to make informed decisions about their reproductive health. Advocacy for increased choices in reproductive care is essential to empower women in their healthcare journey. Amidst these concerning statistics, a ray of hope emerges in the form of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) member clinics. SART gives these women the insights to understand the success rates of each fertility center in the United States. The national average live birth rate per new patient for women under 35 was an encouraging 68.9% in 2020.

Cycle Clarity Connections is a fertility monitoring software that provides local fertility care. The technology allows for OB-GYN monitoring so that 90% of your treatment is done locally and your REI of choice oversees the stimulation from anywhere in the United States. Cycle Clarity Connection’s technology analyzes videos of your ovaries, and provides a full report in transparency to support your REI in their clinical decision making. Travel for patients is only needed at the end of their cycle for the procedure. Wouldn’t you prefer to cut down on travel time and PTO, while choosing the best fertility clinic for you?

Is Cycle Clarity accurate?

Cycle Clarity is an FDA cleared AI software platform that is able to detect, count and measure each of the follicles in your ovary. In the FDA clinical trials the Cycle Clarity software was as accurate as a Reproductive Endocrinologist performing the ultrasounds. Most manual ultrasounds take 10 minutes. Cycle Clarity does the ultrasound in 10 seconds per ovary. The power of computing. 🙂

How long does the ultrasound take?

A Cycle Clarity ultrasound typically takes 10 seconds per ovary and is then directly transmitted through the internet to Cycle Clarity. Cycle Clarity will verify the receipt of the images and quality of the images before you leave the OBGYN office.

How does my doctor receive my results?

The doctors will receive your results instantly through the Cycle Clarity platform. The Cycle Clarity platform allows the clinical team to see your entire ovary to verify the measurements AI makes. It also allows the team to add and delete follicles if necessary and to predict the optimal time for insemination or egg retrieval.

How much does Cycle Clarity cost?

Cycle Clarity costs $236 for one month of service, unlimited ultrasounds. Your OB/GYN would charge you or your insurance for your ultrasound. There would be no additional fertility clinic charges for the use of Cycle Clarity.

How do I get my OB/GYN involved?

Reach out to your OB/GYN to see if they would be willing to help you with your ultrasounds. Following that Cycle Clarity will take over. On your sign up form, we will have you fill in the information of your OBGYN. Our integration specialists will reach out to your OBGYN to ensure the ultrasound machine successfully sends the information to Cycle Clarity, so that your fertility doctor can see this information.
