Allison Conti set out to solve a problem, even if it was something no one liked to talk about. Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) affects almost 500 million women globally. After conducting a full competitive analysis, Conti discovered there was no over the counter product to combat this common issue that is most often associated with exercise, coughing, laughing, sneezing, and pregnancy. So Watkins-Conti worked to develop Yoni.Fit, the first complete over the counter solution for SUI. In April of 2023, Yoni.Fit completed the clinical trial stage and it is now in the FDA regulatory filing process. The hard work, perseverance, and guided growth of Watkins-Conti has put it on track to enter the estimated $4 billion U.S. market for adult urincary incontinence.
