hello ronella,
if you are refering to the temperature you can take it in the early morning. sleep do not alter the temperature. you an check after eight but early morning temp is better.
however i would advise you to consult your doctor regarding the day and dose of clomid you need to take.
i hope i have answered your query.
take care
