Why should I get screened?

STIs can also spread through oral sex and genital contact

Up to 70% of STIs in women & AFAB folks are symptomless

If caught on time, STIs are easily treated with prescription medications

Untreated STIs can harm your reproductive health and fertility

The humble tampon, repurposed for screening

Tampons take better, more accurate samples than a standard swab

Swap fumbling with a swab for comfortable, at-home testing

Complete with an applicator designed for pain-free and smooth insertion

The risk of contracting STIs can be reduced through consistent and correct condom use, regular STI testing, and open communication with sexual partners.


Untreated STIs during pregnancy can lead to serious complications for both the mother and the baby, including preterm birth and congenital infections.


Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a potential complication of untreated STIs like chlamydia and gonorrhea, which can cause severe abdominal pain and fertility issues.

"The process is about as seamless as a pair of Skims knickers, and a good deal more comfortable than a vaginal swab via a speculum. With the vaginal microbiome a key predictor of gynaecological health complications, becoming acquainted with your own can be useful."

Daye tampons are manufactured in accordance with medical device standards, including ISO13485 and GMP. In order for a diagnosis to be confirmed, test results from the Diagnostic Tampon should be considered by a licensed healthcare provider alongside a patient's symptoms and medical history. Like every other diagnostic test, lab results are not sufficient for a diagnosis. Daye offers customers the option to connect with independent CQC-regulated healthcare providers virtually and in-person for a confirmed diagnosis. All prescriptions and treatments provided through the Daye platform are issued by third-party, independent pharmacists, who are also regulated under CQC and GPhC.
