Which of the following causes increase in basal body temperature during ovulation:



A Progesterone
B Estrogen

C Luteinizing hormone
D Follicle stimulating hormone

Ans. A Progesterone
  1. Biphasic changes in BASAL BODY TEMPERATURE are typical of the ovulatory cycle and are mediated by alterations in PROGESTERONE levels.
  2. An increase in basal body temperature by 0.3 to 0.5°C begins after ovulation, persists during the luteal phase, and returns to the normal baseline (36.2 to 36.4°C) after the onset of the subsequent menses.
