Members of our community mail us their tampons using a patented, specially-designed (and totally fool-proof) collection kit.
It’s like a mini-science experiment in your bathroom, and the genomic insights can have a huge impact on women’s health, and your own.
Periods, pregnancy, menopause – whether you think these are part of your superpower or a burden, they deserve the type of astonishing investigation, resources and clarity we know our advanced society can achieve…and we know that if we don’t do it ourselves, no one is going to do it for us.
A survey is the beginning of a conversation
Many factors impact your menstrual cycle. We’ll collect demographic information and ask you about your general health and menstruating history. We’ll use this information to understand how your menstrual cycle responds to different stimuli.
Starting the survey is the first step in your journey with NextGen Jane.
The uterus is a sentinel for your health. The menstrual cycle is a convenient way to sample the uterus
The survey is only the beginning. If you’re interested in advancing the science of uterine biology, the collection of your tampon is the next step.
Jane collects this rich sample type through our collection kit (organic cotton tampon and safe to use at home).
Your sample allows Jane to tie genomic signals to health outcomes.
Data over time is the most powerful tool in expanding our knowledge base and giving you the information you need to make decisions with confidence.
Jane is the only longitudinal molecular study of women’s menstruation on the planet
What will a more sophisticated, molecular understanding of gynecological health make possible?
Better diagnostics that help you understand what is happening to your body. More, precise options for treatment. The tools to manage your health proactively, not reactively.
Isn’t it about time?
Jane was conceptualized as a way to provide broad fertility insights to people in the easiest manner possible. With time, the clear unmet needs in reproductive health focused our work on understanding the underlying biology of endometriosis and other menstrual issues. At Jane we continue to grow, and we are dedicated to exploring, asking and answering the questions that impact any aspect of our well being.
