    I'm not a vet, but if she's pooping then it's likely she's not impacted. If she's pooping less because she's eating less that does make sense.

    Female geckos do ovulate but I don't think they go into heat like mammals so she's probably not looking for a mate, however, females can behave differently when they're ovulating. Many of my geckos...

    You could try cleaning it up with a q-tip in warm water. Maybe it's a buildup of something that could be removed. Some geckos don't eat much in the winter even if there's no mouth problem.

    Not being a vet, and not having treated a gecko with Panacur, I won't even chance a response. I'll be curious to know, though, what you end up doing.

    It's hard for my old eyes to tell. Is it a juvenile? If so, you may have to wait a bit longer. My memory of my AFT's is that the males bulges were pretty obvious as an adult.
