Suggest remedy for cramps in navel

Sharp cramps in navel I was told by the E.R. Recently that I had an infection in my navel. I dont think that I was accurately diagnosed. Ive been getting sharp pains shooting through my navel off and on for years. The navel area swells and turns black when it is inflamed. Then when it heals , it gets itchy and the blackness slowly goes away. This happens to me every month and lasts for approx 1-2 Weeks. I think I have an umbillical hernia. And if this is true, can having a recurring umbilical hernia affect fertility?
