Our Health Assessment takes 20-40 minutes to complete and covers more health history than you’d be able to cover in a quick doctor’s visit (plus, you can do it in your PJs).
Inside, you’ll find an unbiased short-list of birth control recommendations based on your unique biology and reviewed by one of our expert physicians. If you’d like to start or switch to a new birth control, have your new prescription sent to your pharmacy of choice and select a refill plan.
(If you have health insurance, check to see if you’ll have out-of-pocket costs.)
If you’d like to get more insights about your body and how your magnificent hormones are working, you can take an at-home hormone test. This will help rule out hormone-related conditions that aren’t affecting you. Then hop on a video call with a hormone scientist to discuss your results and help you continue to live in harmony with your hormones.
Check out our FAQs for everything you need to know about Tuune
How does Tuune make its recommendations?
By really getting to know you! The first step is our Health Assessment, an extensive online survey where we ask you questions about your medical and birth control history, any conditions you’re living with now or in the past, and your well-being goals. If you’d like to speak to the team about your recommendation or ask us more questions, you can chat to one of our physicians.
Which birth control methods does Tuune recommend?
Hormonal contraceptives including the combined pill, progestogen-only pill, the patch, the ring, the implant, the injection, and intrauterine devices (IUD).
Reversible non-hormonal contraceptives: the copper IUD.
If appropriate, other methods such as Fertility Awareness Based (FAB) methods.
Our recommendation is based on your unique medical history as well as your personal situation. We’re completely agnostic, meaning we look through all available birth control methods before making our recommendation. If you’d rather stick to one specific method (say, the pill), just let us know and we’ll suggest different options.
Once I’ve received my recommendation, how do I switch birth control?
It all depends on A) which method you’re currently using and B) which method you’re switching to. Once we’ve shared your recommendation, if you’d like to switch, we’ll let you know exactly what to do next, as well as whether you should use additional protection in the short term.
How are Tuune’s recommendations different to any my doctor makes?
Our medical team – with over 75 years of combined experience – has built a tool that does exactly what you would expect from your regular gynecologist visit, but we go much more in depth. We also really get to know you by asking questions you may not have been asked before about preferences, well-being factors, symptoms, contraceptive history, etc.
Plus, we take our time! Our Health Assessment takes on average 30 minutes, but you can spend as long as you need answering our questions (either in one go or you can come back to it later). We’re able to gather much more information during this time than is usually possible within a typical clinician setting. By letting us know more about you, we can make informed recommendations about your birth control.
Is Tuune covered by my health insurance?
No, but we're working on it for the future. If this is something you want, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is Tuune safe to use?
The Tuune platform has undergone rigorous medical and regulatory reviews to ensure the utmost safety for everyone. Every Tuune recommendation meets the US Medical Eligibility Criteria (US MEC) for Contraceptive Use. You're in safe hands.
How fast is shipping?
If you have requested a prescription from a physician, they will directly contact your preferred pharmacy and you can arrange collection directly with them.
What is your refund policy?
Once an order has been placed for the physician-reviewed report, our physicians get to work on it straight away, so unfortunately we won’t be able to offer you a refund.
I haven't received my report yet - what do I do?
Each report is reviewed in detail by one of our physicians, so can take up to 2 business days to arrive. We'll email you as soon as it's ready. If it takes longer than this, please get in touch at email@example.com.
