Water retention: Around the menses many women will retain water. The lower abdomen will swell and bloat. Most women cannot see uterus unless they are pregnant or have an enlarged uterus . If one is able to "see" their uterus, a trip to the gynecologist may provide an answer. A pelvic exam will be done and if needed a sonogram.
