ATLANTA, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Femasys Inc. (NASDAQ: FEMY), a biomedical company aiming to meet women's needs worldwide by developing a suite of product candidates that include minimally invasive, in-office technologies for reproductive health, today announced that, in the wake of the overturn of Roe v. Wade, it will host a key opinion leader (KOL) event to discuss FemBloc, the Company’s proprietary, first-of-its kind medical solution for permanent birth control, on Thursday, July 28, 2022 at 10:30am Eastern Daylight Time.

The webinar will feature a presentation from KOL, Paul D. Blumenthal, MD, MPH, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Stanford University Medical Center, who will discuss the unmet need for women seeking permanent birth control options. Dr. Blumenthal has a distinguished career in Obstetrics & Gynecology spanning close to 40 years and has conducted advocacy work in Women’s Health on a global basis.

Femasys’ FemBloc, a novel approach to permanent birth control, will be discussed as an important potential medical solution as it pertains to women’s contraceptive options and choices, especially given the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade.

FemBloc features a proprietary delivery platform, which uses balloon technology designed to precisely deliver a biopolymer to the fallopian tubes to close the tubal lumen leaving no permanent implant behind. This nonsurgical, in-office approach eliminates the risks of incisions, anesthesia, and hormones. Confirmation of procedure success can be achieved after 90 days, which would provide women with a certainty no other option can achieve.

A live question and answer (Q&A) session will follow. To register for the event, please click here.
