After conception does your temperature rise immediately or can it take a few days?

The moment you ovulate you body starts to manufacture progesterone to protect the impending pregnancy. Your basal temperature would raise by 1 degree from one morning to the next once ovulation has occurred. (i.e. Wed. 97.5, Thurs. 98.7) This proves you ovulated. You still have to wait the standard time to see if the egg is fertilized and implants.

It is important to remember that not all women will see a thermal shift of exactly 1 degree F, the thermal shift could be delayed and not occur immediately after ovulation, and that the methodology used to detect the BBT can greatly influence the temperature reading.

I wouldn't rely on a rise in temperature as being a indication of Ovulation or conception taking place as temperatures rise for a variety of reasons & don't always rise during Ovulation or conception.

Your temperature lowers while you are ovulating or preparing to ovulate. Therefore once the egg is released your temperature will rise. If you do not conceive, it will fall again as you get your period and you prepare to ovulate. Therefore your daily temperature will not tell you if you have conceived, only that you have finished ovulating.

It does not take long for your temperature to rise after ovulation. It can rise slightly the day of ovulation but will also continue to rise over the next few days. In order to confirm ovulation took place you will need a rise in temperature over three days.

I wouldn't rely on a increase in temperature as being a indication of Ovulation or conception. Temperatures rise for a variety of reasons, especially during the evening & are not a good idea when trying to conceive in my opinion. Yes this is normal for your temperature not to rise. Sometimes it may rise & other times it will not. Don't worry. Purchase a ovulation predictor kit & this will be a much easier way of determing if you've Ovulated or not.
