When Your Body Talks

Jane Sees Jane Listens Jane Speaks

By answering questions about yourself combined with genomic insights from your tampon, Jane can help you demystify your health

The uterus is a hyper-receptive organ that responds to external and internal stimuli (from stress to disease). The menstrual cycle offers a way of non-invasively tracking this responsiveness as an indicator of health



Jane uses your survey responses to better understand how your lived experience affects your health


Jane uses your tampon samples to look at cells shed naturally from your reproductive tract


Jane interprets the data from your tampons within the context of your survey data for a comprehensive picture of reproductive health

Why does the survey matter?

Many factors impact your menstrual cycle. We are trying to map out how your menstrual cycle responds to different stimuli and reflects your health.

Starting the survey is the first step in your journey with NextGen Jane.

Tell Your Story. Jane’s Listening.

Jane Sees

The uterus is a sentinel for your health. The menstrual cycle is a convenient way to sample the uterus

The survey is only the start. If you’re interested in advancing the science of uterine biology, the collection of your tampon is the next step.

We can leverage this rich source of material through our collection kit (organic cotton and safe to be used at home)

Your sample allows us to tie genomic signals to health outcomes

Collect and collect often. Data over time is the most powerful tool in expanding our collective knowledge.

Jane Speaks

We need the right tools in order to become stewards of our own health

Inputs from the survey are valuable – from answering questions about the number of period products you use to the levels of pain you experience. Tampon analysis sheds further light on actual molecular data from your reproductive tract. This is Jane’s foundation for creating a more sophisticated understanding of gynecological health.

Jane is building a first-of-its-kind resource library to help you navigate your health.

The NextGen Jane

Origin Story

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. Today, Jane is dedicated to exploring, asking and answering the questions that impact any aspect of our well being.
