Question: Ultrasound revealved lots of fluid around my uterus?!?!?!

 luvumason - Tue Jun 05, 2007 7:19 am

Hi, I am a 21 year old female and I had a cat scan a month ago that revealed I had a small cyst on my ovaries about 2mm. The doctor wanted to do a follow up ultrasound yesterday which then revealed I had lots of fluid around my uterus. He said that he didn't think the cyst had busted and left that much fluid because, it was so small. He is going to do laproscopy but, I was wondering what could cause this????

User avatar Off hand, there are a few possibilities I can think of. One is that it may actually be that you had a cyst (or multiple cysts) rupture and subsequently leave some fluid behind. Another possibility is the presence of something like endometriosis.

If you had some inflammation of one of your pelvic organs it may have induced some fluid production to help coat and protect the inflamed area.

Most of the causes really are not concerning but your doctor likely wants to do the laparoscopy to be sure everything is ok. If there is some endometriosis it can be treated while they are doing the laparoscopy.

Best wishes.
