Ruby is a new sex ed app developed by Glow, that promises to offer a lot of helpful information to the women who will use it. They will only have to put in a little bit of information about themselves, such as their age, height, weight and some details concerning their menstrual cycle and Ruby will try to assess their situation as best as possible, so that it could provide them with personalized information that could prove extremely valuable.
The current teen pregnancy rates are getting lower and lower, but there is quite a long road ahead of us before this matter could be reduced to low enough quotas. The main cause of teen pregnancies is the lack of information that these young women have in regards to sexual health, contraception and the way that reproductive system actually works.
A large amount of sexually transmitted diseases are also contracted due to the lack of information that people have in regards to the protective methods that they have in the face of these infections. Furthermore, common gynecological infections could also be prevented by following some basic guidelines, that young women might not be aware of.
Ruby could prove to be useful in all three of these situations, as it could help women of all ages get a better understanding of how their own body works and what they need to expect in certain types of situations. And the best thing is that it offers all of this information in a private setting, so that the fear of embarrassment is no longer a barrier between women and what they need to find out.
Due to making all sex-related topics extremely tabu, women are reluctant to discuss them freely, because they perceive these matters as being inappropriate. This always leaves them with a lot of unanswered questions or misconceptions that could prove to be dangerous to them at some point. But Ruby could be like a world wide web big sister, who shares her wisdom when it is necessary, and who is warm and trustworthy.
The app actually incorporates information regarding healthy conception, so it is not only women who want to steer clear of pregnancies that can use the app. The aim that the people behind the app had was to unite the valuable information provided by several other apps, that are specialized in monitoring menstrual cycles and identifying the perfect moment for trying to make a baby into one universal platform that could accompany women along their lifetime journey and provide them with the best possible advice for their health.
