Hi, i just received my ultrasound result. The note said that i have minimal free fluid in the it normal?? And actually how much free fluid a normal person have??
I really don't understand the meaning of normal bilaterally

Welcome and thank you for your question.

Minimal free fluid in the pelvic cavity is normal - this fluid is secreted by the peritoneum to lubricate the organs and collects in the pelvis, the pelvis being the lowest dependant part of the abdomen.

There is no specific normal range for how much free fluid is normal - the amount may vary from time to time depending on the menstrual period. It is more in the 5 days prior to the periods and during the time of ovulation ( 12-21 days).

When the fluid can be measured, it is significant and is no longer mentioned as minimal free fluid.

Normal bilaterally means that the pelvic organs on both sides are normal.

I hope this helps.
