As much as a vague societal sense of propriety discourages it, talking about, learning, and diagnosing sexual health is incredibly important for overall physical health, and SmartJane from uBiome is a new at-home test that can help women to get professional diagnoses and advice without having to spend inordinate amounts of time standing around at clinics or waiting for an appointment with one's GP to open up. The "discreet and easy screening test" checks for over a dozen common STIs as well as the general health of one's vaginal flora.

In many cases getting tests for different things, from HPV and chlamydia to vaginal flora balance, means taking several different samples. The SmartJane home testing kit requires only one sample, making responsible sexual health far easier for women to keep up with.
