Amy Beckley, PhD

Founder of Proov

Amy Beckley, PhD, is the founder of Proov and the inventor of the first and only FDA-cleared test to confirm ovulation at home.

When Amy and her husband tried to get pregnant, they suffered through several years of infertility, including seven miscarriages and two rounds of IVF – the second of which resulted in her son.

When Amy decided she wanted another child (without another round of IVF), she used her background in hormone signaling to uncover a problem with ovulation which caused a progesterone deficiency (also called a luteal phase defect).

With the help of an inexpensive progesterone supplement, Amy and her husband were blessed with their daughter. Amy invented the original PdG test in her basement to help women identify problems with ovulation at home, and started selling them in plastic bags on Amazon with a $50 logo off Upwork.

“Who better than a young, infertile, female scientist to come up with an OTC pharmacological test as first-line offense in early diagnosis of infertility? Enter now-39-year-old Amy Galliher-Beckley to blow all my theories out of the water – namely, that a biotech/genetics/pharma company can actually be founded in one’s basement.

Denver-based MFB Fertility (“My Fabulous Basement”) created Proov Progesterone Test to test for a fertile woman’s expected progesterone surge each month.”

“Boulder, Colo.-based fertility company MFB Fertility Inc. received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in February 2020 for its Proov test, designed to help women measure their hormone levels and to know when in a given month they are most likely to become pregnant. A typical kit includes 20 testing strips, allowing a woman to test daily, which the company said would be tough to achieve through visits to a doctor’s office.

Amy Beckley, the company’s chief executive, said the rise of at-home Covid-19 tests over the past year has made it much easier for people to understand her product.

“All of a sudden, home diagnostics and home testing became a thing,” she said.”
