Yes, when you ovulate you often have a slight elevation in body temperature. Not so much a fever as just 1 or 1.5 degrees. Normal body temp is 98.6, typical basal increase with ovulation will bring to 99.5 or 100.0. There are special thermometers for this very purpose. You check your temp every single morning at the same time and chart it on a graph, watch for trends in your temp elevating and then dipping over a few days. After a few months, ideally, you can see a pattern and you will know when you are fertile. It seems that even with PCOS your doctor could have advised you to do this, it is cheap and there is no risk to you and maybe could help you get a feel for impending ovulation. There is always a chance of conception, if the egg was released on Sat/Sun it would be barely viable at this time, but it can't hurt to try.

Women who have PCOS do ovulate irregularly , and when you ovulate a follicle forms around the egg and then that ruptures and releases the egg and fluid into your abdomen. That fluid can cause irritation of the inside of your abdominal wall, called Mittelschmerz pain. it is possible that this is what you felt. How long did the pain last? If it were your appendix, either ruptured or inflamed you'd have constant pain, a fever and elevated white cells in your blood. Have you been to see an endocrinologist in addition to your ob/gyne? having someone help you with the hormones of PCOS may help you be more successful in conceiving.

Look for a Basal thermometer, not a regular one. Ask a pharmacist or look at a baby supply store.

Thanks a lot Sarah,I have not been to an endocrinologist before,I will see to one,pls am sorry I forgot to tell that I also had a fever while having the pain
could ovulation come with fever if so have I missed my chances for this cycle? I didn't have sex since Saturday I had the pain,can I have sex today,do I still have the chance to concieve?
