Bloated or just full of eggs?

How can you tell if your female is bloated or just full of eggs? What is the best way to help her out on the egginess? I can post a picture if you guys want me too. I just got her today and I want to know how I should treat her. About half of the stores females looked eggy/bloated.

I posted in the general betta care but no one responded and I was sent here. Pretty please? If she is just bloated, I want to help her, if she is eggy, I want to help her release them so that she can be normal again. I've never had any experience with females before.

They're supposed to be eggy. Especially young ones. As they age they will become thinner.

Alright. So I don't need to do anything to help her release them? How long is it safe for her to have the same eggs inside of her belly?

You don't need to do anything,just feed her well and give water changes.She'll be alright.Females can carry their eggs till they are old,so,no worries.

Really? Well cool~ I had just thought I'd read somewhere that the eggs kept inside for a long time could cause an infection. That's all.

No. In very rare cases it can kill them if they get too eggy but that is not only rare but untreatable.

Yes,if she is carrying eggs,don't feed to much as well.My first fry got eggy and died at 4 months because i fed her too much.
