Here's a little background info: we just finished our 3rd cycle of TTC and I got my period (seemed normal) on Sunday July 13th.
Fast forward 6 days to Sat, July 19th: while babysitting at my brother's I noticed when I was changing into my bathing suit that I looked puffy & swollen in the area called the mons pubis (it's the triangle of skin, fat & tissue that is covered by the front of your underwear). I thought it was odd but decided maybe it was because I had gone out the night before with a friend (being a little down from not being preg) and had a bunch of drinks & little sleep. Maybe I was just bloated & hungover? Later that night I came home and showed my husband and the swelling was MUCH worse. There was no pain or warmth to the area and no fever, just swollen & jiggly. I put a cold compress on it, went to sleep and by the morning, the swelling was gone.
I thought the issue resolved itself but by afternoon & evening, it came back just like on Sat. and today (Monday) has been a repeat. I have very slight tenderness now when I feel the area but I think it might be because I've been pressing on it and feeling it constantly for 2 days now.
I called the nurse line for my insurance and they determined it wasn't anything of an emergency and to just schedule a routine appt with my Dr. I've taken 3 preg tests since Sat, all negative. I've thought about anything new I could have come in contact with (detergent, medicines, etc) and I can't think of a single thing!
Has anyone had this kind of weird swelling before? maybe an ectopic and the swelling is from bleeding?
