Does basal body temp drop before ovulation?

How long after ovulation does BBT rise?

Your BBT curve should go up within 24-48 hours after ovulation. Sometimes, especially with a slow rise, it can take up to four to five days to see the BBT rise after the OPK first becomes positive, but ideally, you see the rise within two to three days.
