I ovulated, so why is my BBT still low?


I have been having ultrasounds to measure my follicles. I had an ultrasound today which confirmed ovulation. Why hasn't my temperature gone up? Has anything like this ever happened to anyone else?

I have asked around on different forums and a few women have said that they don't see a temperature rise until sometimes days after ovulation. I just wanted to see if anyone here has had any similar experiences.

Thanks

I've read several different articles that say it can take 3 days for the rise to take place. I just started temping last cycle, so i don't know yet what my 'usual' will be.

The rised temps is a sign that you have ovulated.

The exact ovulation day is the day when you have the temperature dip.
You said the U/S today confirmed ovulation, so that last lowest temp must be the the "ovulation dip".
If you ovulated today, you will see the rise starting tomorrow.

I didn't ovulate today. My ultrasound showed that I ovulated yesterday. I have been getting them practically every day.

Oooo I misread then.

Well, only way to find out is to wait for tomorrow's temp.

Thanks. I'm so curious to see what tomorrows temp is. Maybe it just takes some time before my temperature rises.

How have you been? Any symptoms yet?

I have noticed that my temperature does rise slowly every month. It's just weird that my temperatures aren't in my post O range yet. Usually I get 3 types of temperatures. Wacky ones while I'm on my period. Low ones after my period up until I ovulate and higher ones after I ovulate. It's really weird.

I'm going to have monthly ultrasounds from now until I get pregnant so in a few months, if I'm not pregnant yet, I'll get a better idea of what's happening to me.

Jadee, don't listen to those people on the interent because the fact is that you can't confirm ovulation for sure unless you have blood work and ultrasounds done. I have had both and they both confirmed I ovulated but yet I still had positive OPK's and my temperature hasn't rised. LH is always in your system which is why sometimes OPK's pick up surges at different times.

Do you use fertilityfriend.com?

If not click on "my ovulation chart" in my sig and sign up, it's super helpful!

EDIT: nevermind I see your sig and your chart now! :P
