A certain amount of free fluid in the pelvis, behind the uterus, is normal at certain points in your cycle; after ovulation, a small amount of fluid released with the egg collects behind the uterus and is eventually reabsorbed by the body. A larger amount of fluid may indicate a ruptured ovarian cyst. Pain is usually present in this instance, but most often resolves on its own within a few days. Infection is another possibility, but in this case symptoms such as pain and fever are often significant.

You could get a second opinion from an GYN. If you decide to do so, be sure to bring a copy of the ultrasound report and the pictures themselves, if possible. This information will help the second doctor. A repeat ultrasound may be ordered to see if the fluid has gone away, assuming it was more than would be considered normal in the first place
