Born out of research.
We started as Fertility Nutraceuticals in 2011 as a boutique pharmaceutical-grade supplements company. The product that started it all, Fertinatal, remains the market-leading fertility DHEA supplement to this day—and it has been widely recommended internationally by fertility doctors and the Amazon-bestselling book “It Starts with the Egg.”
Now as Ovaterra, we are building on our past, and evolving our focus to include creating a fully-integrated, personalized reproductive platform based on the latest in scientiﬁc research—delivered with a human touch.
We are a woman-led company based in NYC. Our small and mighty team of women lead with the personal experience of their fertility journeys.
Dedication is in our DNA
It all began with one female patient, trying everything to conceive—and a doctor who refused to give up the hope of helping her.
At 42, Dwyn Harben knew the odds were against her, so she searched through studies looking for potential answers.
After finding a small study linking DHEA to improved ovarian stimulation, she began taking DHEA while undergoing fertility treatment. Her results continued to improve despite the odds, and that’s when she directed her physician to the study and informed him of her DHEA usage.
That initial conversation, and the undeniable results seen firsthand, became the foundation of what is Fertinatal today.
FROM OUR CEO
Knowledge is power
When I was training for the Ironman, I worked with an integrated physician to get my body in top shape at the cellular level. It was no different when I started my egg freezing journey. I spent four years researching, learning, and understanding how to create the best foundation for my reproductive health - replacing everything from my cleaning supplies to my deodorant to prepare my body for pregnancy (eventually) at the cellular level. In August 2020, our daughter was born.
I joined Ovaterra to bring this knowledge to you. I’m driven by my passion to build the highest-quality products and technology that I couldn’t find in my own journey, and make them accessible to you. I believe in your body's potential and with our products, services and education we hope we can help you believe in it too.
I'd love to hear your fertility story - and what we could build to help you most on your journey. Email me at email@example.com - let's dream together.
