What would happen if i snapped the 'ligament' connected to my belly button?

Can't really do that: There is no true "ligament" connected to the belly button. It is unlikely that the structure called the "umbilical ligament" could be injured by any activity. ...Read more

Inside belly button tender/sore for days now a bit of blood expelling. Also noticed a bit of vaginal bleeding? Period NOT due. Connected?

Inside belly button tender/sore for days now a bit of blood expelling. Also noticed a bit of vaginal bleeding? Period NOT due. Connected?

Remotely possible.: The belly button is a warm, moist secluded area where infection can occur. Clean it out gently with hydrogen peroxide twice a day. If symptoms get worse or redness spreads, antibiotics are recommended. Re: association with vaginal bleeding, it could occur in the unlikely case that ectopic endometrium implanted there. This is too complex to explain here, so ask your physician for details. ...Read more

Is there any significance to the way a belly button appears, such as in or out?

No: Usually there is no significance to the way your baby's belly button appears. Sometimes babies will have what looks like a very big "outie" belly button in the first few months of life. This can be an umbilical hernia, which are harmless more than 95% of the time and will resolve on their own. If you're unsure if your baby has an umbilical hernia, ask your pediatrician to check his/her belly! ...Read more

What does it mean when your belly button is swelled up?

?Hernia?: A bulge at the belly button is usually secondary to a hernia, which is a hole in the muscles of the abdominal wall. These bulges often "yo-yo" in and out, but can become "incarcerated" and permanently protrude. Less likely, an infection may be present (omphalitis): this would be warm, red, and very tender. As with most of these situations, it would be wise to see your primary care physician. ...Read more
