A question about basal temperature

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008


An interesting question about basal temperature. My response follows below.

Hi Katie,

I have only just discovered your information on the web & wish I’d found it a long time ago. I will see if our local library has your book otherwise I will look into buying it. My question is, how long after ovulation is it before Basal Body
Temperature rises? I haven’t been able to get a conclusive answer eslewhere. It would be helpful for charting and timing our conception attempts.

Thanks for your time.


A woman can ovulate 24 hours before her temperature rises and up to 24
hours after the rise. While the temperature gives you excellent
information, you really need to chart cervical mucus when you want to
conceive. My books describe all of this comprehensively.

Best of luck,

Katie Singer
