Trill Impact Ventures, announces that it together with Bpifrance, has co-led a USD 25m series B financing round in May Health, a French-American medical device company targeting Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) related infertility. The round also saw participation from existing May Health investor Sofinnova Partners. Proceeds will advance the clinical development of May Health’s innovative device, as well as reaching CE marking that will enable market introduction in select European countries.

PCOS is the leading cause of female infertility[1], driven by lack of natural ovulation. May Health offers a novel approach to PCOS-related fertility and the upcoming REBALANCE study aims to demonstrate Ovarian Rebalancing™ as a safe and simple treatment option for activating natural ovulation. 

In conjunction with the financing, Nina Rawal, Co-Head of Trill Impact Ventures and Partner at Trill Impact Advisory, will join May Health’s board of directors, and Bita Sehat, Senior Investment Director at Trill Impact Advisory, will join as an observer. 

Commenting on the financing round, Nina Rawal said:

“We see May Health as a great example of a company where commercial opportunity and social impact go hand in hand. Trill Impact is excited to collaborate with the May Health team and its investors to bring their innovative product to women who have suffered from a lack of treatment options for too long.”

Anne Morrissey, CEO of May Health commented:

"For the millions of women living with PCOS, the physical and emotional impact of this condition are profound. From fertility challenges to emotional well-being and physical symptoms, women with PCOS need more viable treatment options. We are thankful to Trill Impact and Bpifrance for co-leading this financing round, and to Sofinnova Partners for their confidence in our team and for their support of our strategy to build a global Women’s Health company and to allow us to bring a solution for women with PCOS-related infertility issues.”
