Transvaginal ultrasound showed retroverted uterus, homogenous myometrium, polycystic ovaries, minimal fluid in cul de sac. What does it mean?

I took earlier my trans-v & the results are: cervix - 2.2x1.8x1.9cm; uterus - 3.9x4.3x3.9cm; endometrium - 0.9cm; ovaries - 2.9x2.8x2.3cm(R) 2.7x2.6x2.3cm (L). The remarks said that my uterus is retroverted ith homogenous myometrium . The endometrium is thick and intact. Both ovaries are located lateral to the uterus containing multiple ( 12) small follicles each measuring less than 1cm suggestive of polycystic ovaries. There is minimal fluid in the cul de sac. Can you please explain to me this result?

According to reports you are suffering from polycystic ovarian disease(PCOD).
PCOD has typical appearance in USG and it is indicated by increase ovarian size,hyperechoic stroma and necklace appearance of cysts arranged in periphery.

PCOD should be confirmed by clinical correlation and biochemical markers like hormonal assay for PCOD.
PCOD is a curable disease and mostly it is treated by medicines.Surgical intervention is required in very few cases.
Minimal fluid in the cul de sac may be due to many reasons like ovulation etc.

You should consult gynecologist.
Other findings are within normal limit.

Hope i have answered your query.
