Thanks for using health care magic.

Did you mean POD instead of PID? If that's the case then POD
stands for pouch of Douglass which is a space behind your
uterus and infront of the rectum. This space in direct communication
with the pelvic cavity and any fluid in the abdomen or from the
pelvis will drain into the pouch. The pouch typically becomes fill
in cases of chronic pelvic inflammatory diseases (PID)or cases of
bleeding inside the abdomen.
PID is associated with lower abdominal pains, fowl vaginal dis-
charges and in some case nausea and vomiting and fever.

PID is a chronic evolves chronically to case a great deal of damage
including infertility, ectopic pregnancy, etc.

You should see a doctor for prescription of antibiotics such as
doxicycline, metronidazole and ciprofloxacine and an anti-inflammatory
such as ibuprofen

Hope this helps you.

General & Family Physician Dr. S. Jegadeesan's  Response
You have not mentioned any complaints. You have just expressed your scan report as Free fluid (commonly) seen in PID - infection of the female reproductive organs that can lead to infertility if untreated.
Even though you have not mentioned about your symptoms - symptoms of PID are abnormal vaginal discharge, pain in the lower abdomen, pain in the upper right abdomen, abnormal bleeding, fever, chills, painful sexual intercourse, painful urination, nausea and vomiting.
Diagnosis by Falloposcopy (visual examination of the inside of the fallopian tubes)
Treatment; Previously and even now - Antibiotic and a specific drug called Floxin (oral medication)
The chance of getting PID is more during periods and with excessive douching. use of condoms for certain period of time is advised. consult gynecologist immediately to find the cause and treatment
Best wishes
