Are swollen glands linked with periods?

Possibly

Enlarged_lymph_nodes
swelling of lymph nodes in the groin region can sometimes occur during the time of menses but should resolve after completion of menses. If you have glands which do not resolve or are swollen in areas other then the groin I would recommend that you seek out your primary physician or gyn for further evaluation.
