iPhone App Gets You Pregnant

With his Glow app, which is launching today on iOS, Levchin’s trying to help women (and their partners) who are trying to get pregnant. There’s an increasing need, as women are having children later in life and health insurance plans typically do not pay for expensive fertility treatments because they consider them “elective.”

Glow is also announcing today that it has raised about $6 million in financing led by Founders Fund with participation from Andreessen Horowitz.

There are a number of other apps with similar goals but Levchin believes Glow is different. With Glow, women enter in their personal information to start, as well as on a daily basis, and the app analyzes this data to give women an estimate of their fertility window via a calendar and an indication of the “% chance” of getting pregnant. Daily data that can be entered include morning temperature, vitamins and cervical mucus. The app also provides personalized stats and recommendations. The service includes a “companion” app for the woman’s partner.
