Body Area Sensor can enable healthcare monitoring in an unobtrusive way. Medical and healthcare research has been striving to find relationships between core body temperature at female genitals and certain health conditions, such as ovulation period. This paper presents a solution for intra-body temperature monitoring based on a new intra-body sensor, communication and desktop application tool. This new biosensor provides data collection that may be used to study the relation between temperature variations and women health conditions, such as, ovulation period (for both natural contraception and in vitro fertilization purposes) among others. The motivation for this work focuses on the creation of this e- Health solution that will fill the gap we realize in medical technology. The proposal was tested and validated by a medical team and it was concluded that this new biosensor performs perfectly.
