Our Story

Reya Health is a company founded by a birth control user for birth control users. After years of experiencing the grueling trial and error process of trying to find a suitable contraceptive, Reya Health’s founder and CEO, Dallas Barnes, set out to change the way we approach our search. Building a birth control matching and tracking app that takes the guesswork and frustration out of the process, Reya Health aims to make your search for the right birth control more personalized, less painful, and maybe even a little fun. It is important that everyone using contraceptives has reliable information to make informed decisions for their own unique journey, and Reya Health was created to be your birth control bestie along the way.
