Ovulating question

Ok so my husband and I have been trying for almost a year. We had him checked out and he's fine (sperm count a little low but fine). So my doctor tells me I'm not ovulating, that I have a normal cycle but my ovaries won't release any eggs. Now I'm at my mid point where I should be ovulating this week, i have this on and off pain/cramping in my left side, indicating to me that my body is in the process. This is disappointing and frustrating because even with this cramping feeling I know that I'm probably not going to release any eggs. Although shouldn't I if I feel my body going threw this process? Has anyone else gone threw this?
