Hey there - you're here for the same reason we're here. The old ways of managing reproductive health have to change. Trade in your GYN's speculum and stirrups for organic cotton.
How do we intend to do that? We look at genomic signals from the cells in your tampon to discover early signs of disease that may affect your fertility and quality of life.
At NextGen Jane, we believe in enriching your QUALITY OF LIFE, expanding your AGENCY, and enabling your PURSUIT OF DATA. All good revolutions require a little blood and are anchored in coherent philosophies championed by an impassioned base. This is our revolution, to empower women and people who menstruate with the information needed to make smart decisions and take true health ownership.
Every single month during your period, your body is providing you with a natural biopsy when it sheds your endometrial lining. What could we learn if we had the tools to listen? That's what we're developing at Jane - a way to listen to the molecular messages from the tissues of your body. Armed with our SmartTampon platform that serves as a sentinel system for your reproductive health, we hope to impact how you manage your health, from puberty to post-menopause.
If you dig it, join us. Help us re-engineer the future, in your image.
