I have two swollen lymph nodes on both sides of my groin. They started to swell on Saturday after I had sex. Then they started to actually hurt on Monday now they don't really hurt anymore. Also the right swollen lymph node's swelling is going down and doesn't hurt at all but my left one is pretty big and is started to hurt again! I thought I had a STD but I have none of the listed symptoms except for swelling. I'm bloating, cramping REALLY bad, and gassy. I've also been on the depo shot for 5 months and I've got all my shot on time. Could I possibly be pregnant? My body is freaking me out. Help.
The only way to know if you have an STD is to get tested. Most STDS don't have any symptoms. Since you are on the depo shot, I doubt your pregnant. When was the last time you got STD testing? Swollen lymph glands are a sign that your body is responding to some sort of infection. This doesn't necessarily mean it is sexually transmitted. The combination of cramping, bloating, and swollen lymph nodes concerns me because it could be a sign of a more complicated infection called PID (that is when an infection moves higher up into your reproductive tract (uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries). If this is the case it can be very serious. I would call your doctor right away or go to an urgent/emergency care, especially if the cramping gets worse, you start to run a fever, feel like your gonna throw up, or get stabbing pains. Please get checked out ASAP.
