Basal temperature

Question:

- Is the temperature of 37 degrees necessary for ovulation? (I always had 36 with 7 or 36 with 8. What can I do to get the temperature to 37 degrees or above? Thanks!

Answer:
Ovulation is the process of releasing an egg from the ovary into the uterine tube, a process that is performed under hormonal control. Any woman can occasionally have anovulatory cycles (without ovulation), even several months in a row, either due to hormonal disorders or because of ovarian dysfunction.

Regarding the basal temperature, it seems that you are confused: it is true that it increases during ovulation, but that does not mean that you must have "fever"; the basal temperature increases on the day of ovulation, compared to the other days (before ovulation) by 0.3 - 0.4 degrees; but it has to stay that way (at slightly higher value) until a new stew.
In your case if the determination was made correctly (in the morning, immediately after waking up, before carrying out any other activity; the ideal place of determination is intra-rectal) the fact that on the 13th day it was 36.5 and increased on the day 14th to 36.9 - would suggest that on day 14 you had ovulation; However, this temperature (36.9) had to be maintained until the day the new menstruation appeared.
Of course, the method of determining the basal temperature is not a very accurate one for determining ovulation (because body temperature can be easily influenced by many factors); for more precise results you can try the ovulation tests found in pharmacies.
Another, and more efficient, method would be ultrasound monitoring of ovulation. If neither of these methods reveals an ovulatory process in your case, you must continue your investigations to find out the causes that cause anovulation (it may be a hormonal disorder, it may be genetic determinism, or acute "organic" disorders, which temporarily influences the ovulatory capacity of the ovaries).
Good health!
