PCOS and basal body temperature - trying to concieve

A:   You are one the right treatment with metformin and clomid in order to concieve. As per your body temperature usually the basal body temperature increases in the second half of the cycle which is the fertile period. However since you have been having increased temps in the first half of your cycle you may be having some low grade fever condition. I wouldnt worry too much about it and just continue with having regular sexual intercourse and taking the medication. We did not recieve your attached chart. All the best.
