Cramping When Taking Clomid.....have Pcos Taking Metformin


about 3 months ago I was told I have pcos. Since then I have been taking 1000mg of metformin and I finished a round of clomid 50mg days 3-7. Ever since day 3 when I started clomid I have been getting weird cramps in my pelvic region. It goes back and forth from the left side to the right side (more so on the left side). I am now on cd 14 and have not ovulated yet but have been experiencing these cramps for 11 days now. What could be causing this? I know ovulation can cause cramping but I haven't ovulated yet and am wondering if I even will.

Shouldn't I be ovulating soon?
Has anyone experienced this? :cry:

Re: Pcos
I have pcos and was on clomid and metformin for a while also. I would think that you should be ovulating. I know they had to up my dose at one point because I wasn't ovulating. I would bring it up to your doctor next time you go and maby they can change your dose.
