    Texas Christian University (TCU) and Flo Health, Inc. have signed a research collaboration agreement.

    Under the agreement, Flo and TCU will collaboratively conduct a research project aimed at determining the correlation between sexual behavior and the frequency of menstrual cycles. The results will be essential to study the impact of health conditions (like insomnia and fatigue) on the changes in the regularity of menstrual cycles and sexual behavior.

    Both parties believe that this collaboration will сontribute to raising global awareness about female sexual health. 

    Sarah Hill, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology, TCU and one of the authors of the project along with Jeffrey Gassen, Hannah K. Bradshaw and Summer Mengelkoch, noted:

    “We are so excited to begin this collaboration with Flo. Women’s issues have been ignored by science for too long and we are confident that this partnership will allow women to learn more about how their brains and bodies work. Teaming up with Flo will reinforce our lab’s commitment to doing research that can have a positive impact on women’s lives, allowing them to be healthier, happier, and better informed.” 

    “Here at Flo we strongly believe that women’s health deserves more attention and collaborative efforts from the scientific and medical communities. It’s critical to raise global awareness about such topics as reproductive health and female sexuality, as it helps people to find answers to their questions. We are confident that through the common efforts we will effectively achieve our goals”, Flo Chief Science Officer Anna Klepchukova said.

    The results of this study will help a lot of women to get a better understanding of the particular qualities of their body and their sexual desires. The results of the project are planning to be published within a year of the project start date.
