Your temperature will only rise in cycles that you experienced ovulation. This is because the hormone responsible for the raise in temperature, progesterone, is only released after ovulation has occurred. If you have a truly anovulatory cycle, your temperatures may either be very erratic (with lots of random ups and downs) or it may remain low and stable for the whole cycle. I hope that helps! 0 Permalink andrea.willemse February 08, 2016 12:54 Do you menstruate with anovulartory cycle? Can miscarriage affect your ovulation? 0 Permalink Please sign in to leave a comment.
