Customer Question

Hello doctor. I just started taking clomid 100mg this month. I'm now 4 days from my expected period, and experienced a very mild pinching in my lower left side for about an hour. I got scared it might be cramps leading to a period, but its far different
from any type of cramp i ever felt..and a weird sensational pressure feeling. Could I be experiencing implantation?

You might be experiencing implantation, but it might also be related to changes in your ovary related to the cyst that forms commonly after ovulation.
It's a little late for implantation, which generally occurs about a week before the next period is due, but it's possible. It's usually not very helpful to guess about implantation though. Most women who think they are having implantation bleeding are having spotting from some other hormonal change.
You'll know when you either get a period or miss one and have a positive test. Good luck!
