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.

In brief: 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.
