Brief Answer: Body temperature-Menstrual cycle Detailed Answer: Hello, Delighted to be able to help. Temperature has two phases in the menstrual cycle: starting the menstrual cycle is lower, which causes ovulation.Three days after ovulation, the progesterone level increases.Progesterone causes body temperature increases after ovulation (approximately 0.2 to 0.5 degrees ).The temperature remains higher for ten days, after which it goes back down, leading to menstruation. Consequently, it is normal for your body temperature is slightly elevated, is not pathological,after will decrease and you'll have menstruation. I Hope I have answered your query.
