Pelvic ultrasound showing uterus with fluid in the cul de sac, ovaries with follicular cysts. Need to be concerned?

I am about to turn 45 yrs. old. A recent Pelvic ultrasound resulted in a 9.0 x 4.3 x 5.5 cm uterus with small amount of fluid in the cul-de-sac, ovaries 4.4 x 2.4 x 4.4 cm and 3.4 x 2.2 x 3.5 cm with tiny follicular cysts in both ovaries; no large pathological, solid or cystic adnexal masses. I am bit concerned; should I be worried?

Thanks for your query.
A small amount of fluid in the cul de sac is a normal finding.
It occurs due to certain hormonal changes during certain phases in the menstrual cycle, specially around ovulation.
Also, it could be because of a pelvic or uterine infection, but you are not having any signs or symptoms.
The rest of your ultrasound - uterus and ovaries - the findings are normal.
take care.
