There are a broad number of types of Femtech products out there for you to choose from. Addressing the complexities of women’s bodies and their unique needs, technology advocates and innovative designers around the globe are bringing amazing products and services to make us healthier and happier.  These include:

Period and Fertility Monitoring Apps

Whether you want to get pregnant, or are trying not to, these mobile apps can be very helpful! Using big data to monitor different variables (up to and over 50 symptoms to track!) in your cycle, you can upload these applications right to your phone to help you expand your family — or keep it right where it is.

General Health Care

This can encompass many areas including telemedicine focusing on women’s  health, genomics based personalized health tracking solutions, and technology driven designs such as the EZbra that help ease discomfort and maximize independence after surgery.

Period Care Goods

Motivated entrepreneurs are also delivering excellent solutions for menstruation needs. From organic (toxin-free) pads and tampons to absorbent underwear to menstrual cups, the market for better, safer, and more convenient period care products is definitely massive.

Women’s Sexual Wellness

Sexual wellness is a blazing hot topic for femtech too. These can include such items as new types of lubricants, new products (increasingly made by women for women) aimed at enhancing sexual experience and jump starting desire after menopause, condoms marketed toward or for the female experience, and apps and sites focused on sexual education for men and women.

Pregnancy & Nursing Care

Innovative solutions surrounding pregnancy and nursing care can be breast pumps that are tech-enhanced, diagnostic tools to use during pregnancy, and products that can help with pelvic treatments for new mothers (as well as post-menopausal women).
