It is not unusual for temperatures to fluctuate, or even be in the high range, during your period as hormones return to pre-ovulation levels. Usually they do not take too long to level out. You should still be able to see your ovulation pattern when it happens.

I get the fact that charting is important and all the BBT stuffs. what I don't get is why is the very next day after ovulation not fertile? That is, the day of the temperature rise.

The lifespan of the egg after ovulation is just 12-24 hours, maybe even less. Fertilization must take place within this timeframe. After this timeframe, the egg begins to degenerate and is no longer capable of being fertilized. This seems like a very short window of time for conception to take place. However, sperm deposited prior to ovulation can survive in the female reproductive tract for a few days, so the few days before ovulation takes place are also considered fertile days.

Does it mean that if you don't follow a pattern (biphasic) you don't know for sure that days which are suitable for conception from intercourse? And, realy, if somebody's temperature is fluctuating? What is the solution?

Yes, the pattern and not the individual temperature rise gives a better prediction. Fluctuation in temperatures could result from environmental conditions, fever, disease, and even inconsistency with temperature measurement. If it is as a result of a fever, disease or climate, you should indicate on your chart. This way you would know how to compensate.
