Hello
Missed period form last 6 months weight gain , abdominal pain swelling in a female in child bearing age may be due to .
Poly Cystic ovarian Disease ( pcod ), as this is most common cause . Diagnosis can be confirmed by ultrasound of abdomen and both ovaries . Also get in hormonal test.
2 Second reason may be tumor in adrenal gland so get in a M R I for confirmation .
3 Obesity may be the next reason due to excessive eating .
As obesity causes headache , swelling .
Sometimes fluid retention may be the cause of such swelling and pain abdomen.
In my opinion first of all consult a gynecologist and get his opinion.
