Cd15 scan shows ruptured follicle of 20mm, n free fluid in pod.8mm e thickness. Is that good? Which days shud I cover to GT pregnant, what r my chances?

Ovulated: Based on the ultrasound results, it seems as though you are in the middle of ovulating or you've already ovulated. In the future, you'd want to time intercourse for before and during ovulation to ensure the sperm are there waiting when the egg is released. You can use an ovulation predictor kit to help you with timing. Sex every 48 hours preceding and during ovulation should cover it. 8 mm is fine. ...Read more

Pelvic/Transvag sono on 8/22 showed partially ruptured ovarian cyst with small amount of free fluid. Would this cause bloating and abdominal fullness?

Pelvic/Transvag sono on 8/22 showed partially ruptured ovarian cyst with small amount of free fluid. Would this cause bloating and abdominal fullness?

Yes: When you ovulate, a cyst on your ovary ruptures to release the egg, and some fluid escapes into your abdomen. This can cause an initial sharp pain, or a sense of fullness or bloating. If it gets worse, or doesn't go away within 2-3 days, see your doctor. ...Read more

Pain during sex, 24/7 cramping pelvic pain and low back pain. Ruptured cyst, free fluid found in sonogram3/14, is constant pain abnormal? Antibiotics?

Evaluation: Intercourse pain is a complex issue. If you recently had a sonogram that showed free fluid this could represent a ruptured cyst but constant pain with cramping and low back pain are atypical. A follow up visit with your Obgyn is warranted to investigate other possibilities. Pelvic inflammatory disease can cause these symptoms and would require antibiotics ...Read more

Ovarian cysts ruptured 2 wk ago. Severe abdominal pain &distended abdomen, fever, sweating, nausea, free fluid in abdomen, can't pass bm. Peritonitis?

Free blood: When ovarian cysts rupture spontaneously the process is associated with release of free blood in the peritoneal cavity. This produces pain on abdominal and pelvic exam related to amt. Of blood released. Peritonitis is usually not present and can be checked by blood count and exam indicating rebound tenderness associated with peritonitis. ...Read more

Can ovarian cyst rupture (free fluid in uterus) cause upper & lower abdominal pain, pelvic pain, menstrual cramps, back pain, thigh pain?

Yes: Ovarian cysts can definitely rupture. Typically the fluid from a ruptured cyst is going to flow down to the bottom of the pelvis. It's possible that there are some issues with inflammation, possibly endometriosis, in the uterus causing the free fluid. Definitely when a cyst ruptures it can cause pain throughout the abdomen. See your doctor if you are in pain. Good luck. ...Read more

Please explain Uterus with no myometrial lesion. The endometrium is slightly thickened at 0.97 cm and intact minimal free fluid in the culdesac?

I am positive for pregancy with hcg levels of 253 yesterday and was told I have minimal free fluid in posterior cul-de-sac is this signs of ectopic pr?

Not necessarily: A small amount of fluid in the posterior cul-de-sac may be normal. If you get pain, or bleeding, go to an emergency room. You may get an ultrasound in a couple of weeks to locate the pregnancy. I take it that you are under the care of a doctor and taking pre-natal vitamins. Do not smoke, do not take alcohol, and get pre-natal care regularly.. ...Read more

Painful 5cm complex ov cyst w/debris, low level echoes & mild free fluid in cul de sac. 27yo. Likelihood of malignancy? Can this cause urine frequency

Malignancy: In your age group (27 is correct, yes?) not terribly high for malignancy but not out of the question. benign tumor (non-cancer) or functional cyst is much more likely. Clinical history would be very helpful, blood testing sometimes too. Very dubious that it would cause urinary frequency. Hope this help! ...Read more

Had a ultrasound last week. Have edometrial stripe of 6.1, small complex cyst, and mild free fluid in pelvis. Scheduled for end/biopsy. Worried!

Probably normal: The endometrial stripe measurement would be thick if you were past menopause. The biopsy is to check the tissue and make sure nothing worrisome is occurring. The cyst may be resolving on it's own (which is why the free fluid in the pelvis) but may be followed with ultrasound. If no resolution further evaluation may be necessary. ...Read more

Need to control PCOS: PCOS causes ovaries to enlarge by creating extra cysts. This can effect the ability to get pregnant. Treating the PCOS will help this. One of the most important things to do is to watch the diet. PCOS is caused by insulin resistance, which means that it is difficult to process carbohydrates. A low carbohydrate diet can help. Talk to your doctor about other treatment options. ...Read more
