Unbelievably painful ovulation - is this normal?

I have been on clomid for 6 months now, 1st March I will be adding Metformin. It is the second month in a row that my ovulation has been unbelievably sore. I have to take pills to be able to stand and walk around. Is this normal, if not, what could be causing this?

The Clomid may be causing hyperstimulation of your ovaries, hence the pain. Report this to your gynaecologist. It is quite important as it is can cause complications if not monitored properly. Your cycle should be monitored with scans and blood hormone levels while taking Clomid.

What sort of complications could be caused? I am living in England at the moment and it is very very difficult to get to see a gynaecologist, I have to wait for about 3 months before I can see him again. I have an appointment booked for the beginning of September but if there are serious complications that could happen, I'd rather stop taking the clomid right now. Please advise. I have also been prescribed metformin to be started on the 1st March - to be taken with clomid.
What do you suggest that I do? Please advise.
Thank you
