An Ontology for Clinical Decision Support System to Predict Female's Fertile Period



Nowadays, many women do not fully realize what the fertile period is, as well as what it represents in their life. The prediction of fertile period is quite complex and difficult to calculate accurately and this is undoubtedly a problem for women’s. There are still some completely wrong ideas about reproductive health, especially about the fertile period and the menstrual cycle. A good example of the myths that persist is the fact that many women continue to believe that ovulation occurs precisely in the middle of their menstrual cycle, which is not always true. Therefore, to better understand the female cycle, we proposed a Clinical Decision Support System based on the use of an ontology. Our proposal can predict the female fertile period, based on certain factors that allow a calculation that is more accurate improving the quality of patient life.
