Period power

Power to the period.

The future of period health is here.

Menstrual blood isn’t waste. The blood our body naturally delivers every month has never been explored as a health testing source. Until now.

We believe people who menstruate should be given the choice to proactively and routinely manage their health using menstrual blood.

A PAD WITH A PURPOSE

Introducing the Q-Pad.TM

Organic Cotton Q-Pad Collection Device

The first and only healthcare service to scientifically prove menstrual blood can test for critical health information – just like a traditional laboratory blood test.

We believe all people who menstruate should have the choice to a non-invasive and needle-free way of managing their health. We’ve crafted the Q-Pad to be conveniently and seamlessly used during menstruation.

Instead of a trip to the lab or a finger prick, you can proactively and routinely monitor existing health issues while also screening for others.

Ending the Stigma

Health not hygiene.

Over 70% of health decisions are made from lab work.

Your period blood tells you about biomarkers that could impact your health.

Closing the Gender Data Gap

Women's health has always been under prioritzed in science.

Exercise your right to participate in research.

Female biology has not been studied equally since the beginning of medical research.  The data used to guide clinical diagnosis today is biased to male biology.  So, when women are not included in research, medical diagnosis may not be accurate for women.

You have the right to participate in research and be represented.

Changing the conversation

Between February and May of 2022, I've had my blood drawn… over 6 times. It's time consuming, and I don't really like needles. I’d rather collect and send my blood in using Q-Pads.

about us

We are a group of scientific rebels.

We are a group of people who believe something that 1.8 billion women do at any given month should not go unanswered.

In 2014, Qvin™ was founded to research and develop a product that powers an underserved and understudied population — women.

We have been challenging the status quo on period blood as a health, not hygiene product.

Qvin [pronounced quinn] is derived from the word woman in Denmark. We stand for every person who identifies with women, however they define it.
