About Daye

At Daye, were on a mission to bridge the gender pain gap and become the leading destination in menstrual, vaginal and hormonal health. We have already established ourselves as a stand-out innovator in menstrual care offering the world's first CBD tampon for targeted pain relief, trusted by over 90,000 women. Now, were expanding our proposition to include two great services which put your own gynae health back in your own hands.

The first is a comprehensive diagnostic tampon which analyses the vaginal microbiome, identifying imbalances around vaginal infections, STIs and fertility.

The second is the world's first online Period Pain Clinic with science-backed pain management solutions and world class aftercare from our network of vetted, empathetic physicians who specialise in chronic pelvic pain. Our tool enables the faster diagnosis of chronic pelvic pain conditions, including endometriosis, adenomyosis, fibroids and other, meaning anyone who experiences pain can get answers, treatments and get their life back on track. We encourage women & AFAB folks to talk about their experiences and help find solutions rather than excuses - we know it's not just period pains.

Daye is now entering an exciting period of growth and expansion, with a focus on scaling our digital acquisition channels and helping Daye scale spend effectively on performance channels.
