BIRMINGHAM, Ala. and MEDFORD, Mass., June 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- INVO Bioscience, Inc. (IVOB), a medical device company granted FDA clearance for the first Intravaginal Culture System, INVOcell™, today announced that Alabama Fertility, a leading reproductive medicine practice in Birmingham, Alabama, reported the first pregnancy in the State of Alabama utilizing the INVOcell technology.

INVO Bioscience (IVOB) is a medical device company, headquartered in Medford, Massachusetts, focused on creating simplified, lower cost treatment options for patients diagnosed with infertility. The company's lead product, the INVOcell, is a novel medical device used in infertility treatment that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development in the woman's vaginal cavity.

Beth A. Malizia, MD, a specialist in infertility and reproductive surgery at Alabama Fertility, said, "We are delighted to announce the first INVOcell pregnancy in our clinic and in the state of Alabama. Our patient is 20 weeks pregnant and is doing great. We recently completed a spot on the local evening news – featuring an interview of our patient and images from her ultrasound - that we expect will air next week. INVOcell is a unique, and cost effective, alternative that may produce desired pregnancies where other treatment options have failed. We believe that INVOcell is a great addition to our scope of services."
