STI-Screening Tampon

UK health startup Daye has released a tampon that allows users to test for STIs from home.

A sample is collected after insertion, which then gets mailed to a lab and checked for chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomonas, and more.

At-home testing is removing the barriers to medical screenings, empowering individuals to test on their own terms and in their own bathrooms.

Providing inclusive shopping experiences starts with small yet powerful changes that make everyone feel welcome.
