In collaboration with the Flo medical team, the study will be led by Michael Snyder, M.D., FACS, professor in genetics as principal investigator, and Liang Liang, Ph.D., basic life research scientist in genetics, both at Stanford.
During the study, scientists will try to find the connection between menstrual cycle characteristics in the six months before pregnancy and their impact on possible pregnancy outcomes.
“This research collaboration totally benefits Flo’s mission — help women all over the world make health their first priority,” commented Anna Klepchukova, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Flo. “We hope to make important conclusions on the connection of the symptoms shown during the trying-to-conceive period and the pregnancy itself. Our conclusions aim to help women pay more attention to how they feel while trying to conceive and maybe even avoid some important complications during pregnancy.”
The study’s results will be published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
The study will take approximately one year and will be held until the end of 2020.
