You need a Basal thermometer, not a regular fever thermometer. The ones that say they are for helping with conception sound like the right ones! Basal thermometers are usually in the family planning section of the drug store with all the pregnancy tests and stuff.
Don't feel like you have to temp if it's a hassle. That only confirms ovulation after it happens anyway. You can learn to track your fertility with cervical mucus only, and it's just as reliable for confirming ovulation. No temps to worry about! That's what we do, with the Billings Ovulation Method.
After ovulation, your temp rises and stays high until you get your period or a positive pregnancy test. Sometimes the temp goes a little higher about a week after ovulation if you are pregnant, but that can happen when you're not pregnant too.
