You need not worry about the fluid.It is common association with pelvis pathologies and doesn't need any special treatment.

Ovarian cysts do resolve on their own most of the time, so you can just keep them following on ultrasound. Only if symptoms develop, they persist or increase in size you might need to consider treating them.

Hope this answers your question.

what happens to the fluid in the cul de sac???? will it go away??? also do the cysts resolve in one cycle or could they linger???
Answered by Dr. Sudhir 2 hours later
Fluid goes away once the underlying pathology resolves. It is not always predictable how long the cysts will take to resolve.But most cysts resolve in a cycle or two.
