The OvulaRing is designed to aid women in determining when they are ovulating and the most fertile to conceive a child. The wearable device is inserted into the vagina, similar to using a tampon, and then the biosensor monitors core body temperature throughout a woman's menstrual cycle. VivoSensMedical GmbH, the maker of the OvulaRing, is working on FDA approval for the device and hopes to receive it in 2016. The device received CE approval in Europe and is currently marketed in that region. The cost for the system ranges from 254 euros ($276 US), for a three-month starter package to 478 euros ($520) for a 12-month package.
