Swollen painful lymph node on the groin area during ovulation and menstruation. CT scan normal. Trying for conception after miscarriages

Hello, I have a swollen lymph node on my left groin side. I have noticed that for 3 months the lymph node shows up and gets swollen and painful with ovulation and with my period. I have no idea why ovulation and my period would make my lymph node show up! I have gone to the doctor and gotten a CT scan , I heard back that everything looked fine except they found lymph nodes...I have an appointment on the 18th, but my husband and I want to try to conceive this month after 2 miscarriages. I would be trying to conceive before my next appointment. We have waited 6 months to try again and I really hate to put it off if it is something we are just going to watch. Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks for writing to us.
A lymph node swelling in the groin with no other associated systemic symptoms could be due to an allergic cause or viral infection. You can try for conception while waiting for the proper investigations. The conception is not likely to be affected.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
