1 doctor agrees

In brief: Temperature rise

Threre wil be a decided elevation of the baseline temperature in the 2nd half of the menstrual cycle produced by the heat producing effect(thermogenic) of Progesterone which will be sustained.
Ovulation usually occurs 14 days before the onset of the next period.
