If my newborn’s scrotum is all swollen and puffy, what does it mean?

May be a hydrocele: In a small but significant number of newborn boys (about 10%) there is an amount of fluid that fills the scrotum around the testicles. This is called a hydrocele. Usually it resolves over the first year of life and causes no harm.

Mood swing going bad, feel bloated, swollen from head to toe, never missed a patch, eat alot never feel full, can this mean pregnacy? Period lasted 3 days!

Mood swing going bad, feel bloated, swollen from head to toe, never missed a patch, eat alot never feel full, can this mean pregnacy? Period lasted 3 days!

Not likely: While I suppose, given some facts like unprotected sex near ovulation, a positive HPT and a missed period that it is possible, it's not likely.

Cut back on over-eating, avoid salt and drink water - be active. ...Read more
