The term was coined by and Danish entrepreneur Ida Tin in 2016. Ida is also the founder of Clue, a period and fertility tracking app.

Dear Doc is a one-stop healthcare solution for women, while Fig Health is a platform that tests for, and manages Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) through tracking lifestyle changes.
