Liquid crystals which have the property of changing color in response to temperature variations are contained in packages and are carried by an article of clothing. These packages sense the temperature of the skin at a control area and at an area that is related to the reproductive system. The gradient of the temperatures between these two areas is then used to determine the existence of a physiological change.
