Question Female with Eggs?

Can a female get eggs without being exposed to a male? Bella looks awfully swollen...I'm going to fast her for a day or two to see if she's just "full", but it really looks different than yesterday!

Females always carry eggs.

Yes, but would she all of a sudden be bigger/swollen?

I just went in and it looks like she's eating these little white things. Are these the eggs? Where do the come out from? I'm so new to all this betta nature!

Fasting won't do anything. The eggs are just... There. The eggs come from an ovipositor. It's their, you know. They look like little white dots.

She doesn't need help... females are plump and will look very large in the tummy after eating.
If you're noticing other symptoms, like difficulty swiming then start worrying.
Below is a (bad) picture of one of my females... who's very round

Is she "round" as in with eggs or just food?
