Hi, is it bad? Endometrium 10mm with a trace of free fluid in the posterior. An involuting follicular cyst 1.7x1.9x2.1 cm. I'd like to have child

Hi, is it bad? Endometrium 10mm with a trace of free fluid in the posterior. An involuting follicular cyst 1.7x1.9x2.1 cm. I'd like to have child

Not bad: The thickness of the lining of the uterus changes based on where you are in your cycle. Free fluid can be a benign process for example if a cyst was to rupture. The cyst you have is not significant and many cysts resolve within 1 to 3 months. Based on the findings you should be fine having a child. Good luck ...Read more

What does 'moderate amount of free fluid in the uterine cavity' mean on a CT report? History of pelvic pain and possible cervical mass.

What does 'moderate amount of free fluid in the uterine cavity' mean on a CT report? History of pelvic pain and possible cervical mass.

Hard to say: A ct isn't usually the best test to look at the gynecologic organs such as the uterus or uterine cavity. We can only notice general things like fluid in the uterus or large masses. Most of the time the fluid is normal and represents blood products due to menstruation, but strictly speaking we cannot know for sure so we say "free fluid." an ultrasound is usually helpful if you haven't had one yet. ...Read more

I'm ttc. My dr told to take follicular study on 12th day. My report was right ovary 42*34 mm sized cyst? Follicular cyst. Left small follicle.

I'm ttc. My dr told to take follicular study on 12th day. My report was right ovary 42*34 mm sized cyst? Follicular cyst. Left small follicle.

Limited Information: Almost impossible to help you with this information. There are so many scenarios this represents. The most likely is a left over follicle from the last cycle that didn't physically ovulate (lufs syndrome). This is not indicative of any serious problem. You could also have ovulated just before the u/s test. But based on no "ovulatory" follicle,? Anovulatory cycle this time. ...Read more

No free fluid is in the pouch of douglas is that good or not?

No free fluid is in the pouch of douglas is that good or not?

That would be good.: Normally, fluid does not reside in the pouch of douglas (in the pelvis) and noted on either pelvic ultrasound or ct scan. Inflammation, infection, tumors, trauma can cause such fluid. Abdominal diseases can produce abdominal fluid (ascites) that can track down into the pelvis (pouch of douglas) as well.

Common causes are a ruptured ovarian follicle during ovulation, diverticulitis, cystitis. ...Read more

What does a "trace amount of free fluid in the cul du sac" mean?

Trace: Most often trace amounts of fluid in various parts of the body are insignificant, but I don't know in what part of the body the cul du sac you're referring to is located. Nevertheless, the finding sounds trivial, but your physician can ask the radiologist who interpreted the study if there is any need for concern or for followup. ...Read more

What does 5.68cc size of moderate free fluid in the culdesac means?.. Please help me im really worried about this result. Is this dangerous?..

Usually benign: In a 29-year-old woman it would most likely be related normal ovulation with the extrusion of fluid from a normal cyst. Could be the result of a ruptured ovarian cyst, or infection but generally the fluid would be more and look like pus. It would be very rare for it to be a cancer. A pelvic sonogram should be able to sort things out. I hope things go well. ...Read more

Follicle22mm day 10 on R and 6Mm on L. non specific free fluid in pod . Opk peak on 14. Pain on both sides . Could left follicle grown in 4 Days?

Very unlikely: in a natural cycle usually only one follicle grows large. others may be present and grow a little but in general that is very uncommon. pain can be for a number of reasons which includes release of fluid and that fluid can go all over the belly not just onto one side ...Read more
