  4. There is a answer of the question that – why body temperature increases in Luteal phase?? Answer is because Progesterone is a thermogenic hormone and it increases the Basal Body Temperature by 1 degree, which can be measured by digital thermometer early morning after waking up. The temperature starts rising after 1-2 days of ovulation.

(because before that you mentioned if there is continuous increase of estrogen there will be no LH surge and hence no ovulation)
