“As someone who was misdiagnosed, I know the brick walls patients meet within the healthcare system when it comes to uterine care, and the casual way debilitating symptoms are dismissed,” said Carol Johnson, Founder and CEO of Uterinekind. “We chose to build an app that will help consumers have a clear understanding of their symptoms, conditions, and options, while also giving them the ability to share detailed, self-reported data with physicians to inform their care. We want patients to take control of their uterine health journey, and our ultimate goal for our platform is to help break down barriers to equitable healthcare in an effort to better serve everyone with a uterus.”
In addition to directly supporting people with uterine health education via their app, Uterinekind is also teaming up with industry-leading partners including The Cornell Ovary Lab by funding research that answers the most pressing questions about the female body and conditions like PCOS. Uterinekind will be donating 10% of every new membership to their partner laboratories, including The Cornell Ovary Lab.
“We are happy to partner with Uterinekind and contribute to their efforts that enable the dissemination of scientifically grounded information on human health,” said Marla Lujan, PhD, Associate Professor in the division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University and PCOS researcher. “In sharing our findings and experiences as researchers, we hope to empower those living with reproductive health concerns to seek timely care and contribute to shared-decision making with their healthcare providers.”

U by Uterinekind aims to improve uterine care for everyone by helping those dealing with uterine conditions connect the dots on their symptoms. With that evidence at hand, users can seamlessly present data to their healthcare providers. Our goal is to accelerate the time from symptom onset to diagnosis for some of the world’s most debilitating and costly diseases, like PCOS, endometriosis, and fibroids. Increasing body and health literacy and supporting research will improve the experience of uterine care. 10% of all app purchases are donated directly to laboratories focusing on the research of conditions that primarily impact the female body.
