Evvy is building a new understanding of the female body.

A woman looks over her shoulder
Throughout history, the female body has been a lot of things.

Painted, sculpted, sacred, scandalous, celebrated, commodified, pinned-up, pant-suited, empowered, loved, and so much more.  

What it hasn’t been, is properly studied.
Women weren’t required to be included in U.S. clinical trials until 1993.

We’re more likely to be ignored in the ER and at the doctor’s office.

It takes us 4 years longer than men to receive a diagnosis for the same disease.

We’re here to change that. And when we say we, we mean you too.
A woman looks into a microscope
A shadowed hand holds a flower
With a simple swab, you’re not only taking control of your own health but improving research and treatment options for women globally.

And that’s just the start.

We envision a world where everyone with a vagina is in control of their own health through personal data, accessible research, and empathetic care.

Our mission is to close the gender health gap by discovering and leveraging overlooked biomarkers in the female body — starting with the vaginal microbiome.

We’re a team of scientists, doctors, designers, and doers.

Dr. Cohen is an OB-Gyn research-scientist with over 28 years of studying the vaginal microbiome and its impact on reproductive health.

He led the first investigation to demonstrate an association between women with bacterial vaginosis and HIV, and since has been studying the vaginal microbiome in part to develop live biotherapeutic products to optimize the vaginal microbiome and improve reproductive health outcomes including the prevention of HIV acquisition.

The combined force led by Evvy to develop powerful datasets on the vaginal microbiome combined with the promise of new therapeutics creates the opportunity to significantly improve reproductive health outcomes for women in the US and around the world.
