who we are

Mission-driven entrepreneurs who want to improve the lives of women all over the world with simple, effective contraceptive options. 

We’re a social impact technology company focused on women’s health. Our mission is to prevent unintended pregnancies and help people have the families they want when they are ready to have them. To date, our family planning solutions have prevented more than 5.5 million unintended pregnancies, and have helped over 1.5 million women successfully plan their pregnancies.


Our mission-driven team is passionate about women’s health and leading-edge technologies, and our partnerships with researchers, health providers, and reproductive health experts help ensure that all of our products fit the company’s mission. We’ve been serving a global audience since 2002 and we’re headquartered in Washington, D.C. Although we are a private company, we often partner with governments, nonprofits, and NGOs to make our products and services available to women who need them.
