I did an ultrasound scan and the results reviewed there is a fluid in the pouch of Douglas and my ovaries are normal so what is wrong with me?
I have Polycystic ovary , a cyst measuring 17 mm. Does it require surgery or it can be shrinked by medecine? I had fever of 104 degree and my USG shows small amount of fluid in POD. Please suggest.
Fever: If your temperature is 104 degrees you have a serious infection which needs to be diagnosed and treated.
