Univfy Introduces a New Suite of Free Online Fertility Calculators --Helping Couples Get Pregnant Sooner, Naturally or with IVF

LOS ALTOS, Calif., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Univfy, the pioneer in online fertility predictive analytics, launches Univfy Fertility Calculators, a suite of personalized, digital, interactive content to help women and men get on the quickest and healthiest path to having a baby.

A free, new feature of Your FertilityTM , Univfy Fertility Calculators, provides practical and personalized information to address the needs of women at different points on their fertility path.

To help boost chances of success for women with no fertility problems, the Univfy Ovulation Calculator determines their most fertile days and when they should start using their ovulation predictor kits, and the Univfy Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator gives fertility and pregnancy health information specific to each user's body fat, as estimated by BMI. Many patients may find they do not need to spend precious time losing weight before trying to conceive.

For women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF), the Univfy IVF Cycle Calculator helps couples make fertility treatment decisions by giving their probability of needing two or three IVF cycles to have a baby. Univfy also offers Univfy IVF Cost Calculator Lite*, a light version of the popular Univfy IVF Cost Calculator*, that gives quick comparisons of their personalized chances and cost of having a baby with one or three IVF treatments.

"Couples who are trying to conceive in their thirties may not have the luxury of time to let nature's low probabilities take their course," says Univfy Co-founder and CEO Mylene Yao, M.D. "The Univfy Fertility Calculators provide practical essentials in an interactive and personalized format that can help a couple conceive months earlier, or to realize when they need to see a fertility doctor in time to make their dream of having a baby come true."

Women and their partners can access Univfy Fertility Calculators, Your Fertility, and the Univfy IVF Success Program of IVF success prediction tests directly from Univfy's website, http://www.univfy.com. "We have found that patients want to receive personalized information to help them make decisions about their fertility treatment," says Arthur Leader, M.D., of Ottawa Fertility Centre, one of Univfy's earliest research collaborators, who saw the potential in applying data analytics in fertility medicine.

"Univfy Fertility Calculators can help our patients learn more about maximizing their chance of conceiving," says Laura Reuter, M.D., Medical Director of Midwest Fertility Specialists. "Whether it's pinpointing ovulation in a woman's cycle, the impact of her weight on her fertility, or her chance of IVF success, personalized fertility information online, in the place of generic information, can help a patient and her partner make more informed decisions to achieve their goal of having a baby."

Many physicians at leading fertility clinics offer to discuss with clinic patients their Univfy test results*: Boston IVF, MA; Hannam Fertility Centre, Canada; Midwest Fertility Specialists, IN; New York University (NYU) Fertility Center, NY; One Fertility, Canada; Ottawa Fertility Centre, Canada; Reproductive Associates of Delaware, DE; Reproductive Medicine Associates of Michigan (RMA), MI; and the Reproductive Resource Center, KS. In addition, Ottawa Fertility Centre and IVI Clinic Valencia, Spain, offer their clinic patients the Univfy IVFsingle test, providing their personalized risk of having multiple births to best counsel IVF patients on whether to transfer one embryo rather than two or more.  For a complete list of clinics that offer Univfy IVF Prediction Tests, see our Provider Directory at https://www.univfy.com/ivfclinics/. Univfy Fertility Calculators and Univfy IVF Prediction Tests can serve as an online reference for health care providers when counseling patients on trying-to-conceive or fertility treatments.

About Univfy: Univfy empowers women and their partners to take charge in building healthy families by providing highly accurate, personalized predictions for fertility treatment success and high-quality digital multimedia and interactive fertility health content.

Based in Los Altos, California, the company was founded in 2009 by former Stanford University Assistant Professor and fertility researcher Mylene Yao, M.D., and Stanford University Professor and biostatistician Wing Wong, Ph.D.

From research at Stanford University and with leading fertility clinics in the U.S. and abroad, Univfy has developed highly accurate, personalized IVF prediction tests based on multiple fertility factors in a patient's health profile, such as ovarian reserve data, body mass index (a measure of height and weight), reproductive health history, and the male partner's health data. Univfy IVF Prediction Test results are shown to be 1,000 times more accurate than IVF success rates based on age alone. More than 50% of patients tested had a higher chance of IVF success than their age alone would suggest.

The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible.

With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics arc...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
