Can Clomid (clomiphene) cause triphasic basal body temperature charts (when not pregnant)? If so, how?

Can Clomid (clomiphene) cause triphasic basal body temperature charts (when not pregnant)?  If so, how?

Sometimes Clomid (clomiphene) may cause a little bump in temp above 98 while taking the medicine in the first half of cycle. ...Read more
