A rose is a rose...: Check out http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/fever/basics/definition/con-20019229 for basic info on fevers esp when to worry. Definition also depends upon how temperature measured, eg rectal vs oral vs tympanic vs other. It's also useful to know your baseline temperature. Perhaps you're about to ovulate? Check out https://goo.gl/2owTOR for colleague's opinion.
