Severe ab pain/middle/right side-8 days. Ct showed min. Free fluid in cul-de-sac, appendix not ideally seen-no swelling-no gas. Have behcets. Ideas?
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.

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

Clinical history would be very helpful, blood testing sometimes too. Very dubious that it would cause urinary frequency. Hope this help! ...Read more
Found small spec of blood in sperm. No discomfort in urination or ejaculation. Fyi possible hemorrhage in sperm tube getting ultra sound tomorrow.
Possible Infection?: It could be related to the hemorrhage, depending on its location. Usually, blood is from trauma to the penis or an infection in the prostate. If it is a single episode, it is usually not significant. If there are other symptoms or repeated episodes, then, you need to be checked for infections. If you are having unprotected sex, you should be getting checked regularly for infections, anyway. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could trace free fluid in the pouch of Douglas signify a leaking ovarian cyst? Or is trace too small of an amount since it was also around ovulation.
Interpretation: It is not possible to draw conclusions based on isolated aspects of a radiology study. It is very common to find a trace amount of fluid in the cut de sac when doing a pelvic ultrasound. Without knowing the clinical circumstances no conclusions can be made a this time. Physiologic fluid can be a normal finding. ...Read more
Sharp pain during bowel movement on 1st 2 days of menses. MRI shows some small volume fluid in pouch of douglas. Ultrasound found no abnormalities.
You need to continue: following your GYN doctor to figure out if indeed the pain you feel during bowel movement is attributable to the MRI results - especially since the ultrasound did not find anything to cause the pains. I hope you got a transvaginal ultrasound instead of abdominal ultrasound since the former is much more sensitive to pelvic findings. ...Read more
