How it works


Create a Qvin profile

Download the Qvin app and create your secure profile. The app offers a period tracker, and when you are ready to use your Q-Pads, the app will guide you through the process of collecting your samples.


Start using the Q-pad

Use the Q-Pads included in your kit on the heavy flow days of your period. After each use, pull out the test strip and seal it in the secure return container. Mail the container to Qvin for laboratory testing.


Study your results

Your test results will appear in the app accompanied by easy-to-understand explanations. A physician will contact you directly if your results need additional attention.

What is Hemoglobin A1c?

A hemoglobin A1c test will measure the percentage of hemoglobin bound to glucose, which reflects how much sugar has been circulating in your bloodstream. The test provides a reliable picture of average blood sugar over the two to three months preceding the test.

Our test is CLIA approved, and a physician reviews all results.

Who is this relevant for?

If you're healthy, you can get a heads-up if you have levels in the pre-diabetes range. If you're pre-diabetic, you want to lower your A1c level, to prevent the onset of diabetes. If you are already diagnosed with diabetes, you should have it measured every three months.
