Why was USG done?
Depth doesnot matter,see whether it is related to pathology or normal.
Do you have fever? abdominal cramps? any other symptoms?
fluid in POD is seen after ovulation , in pelvic inflammatory diseases and other gynae problems also..
Check with your gynaecologist.

Hi Fluid collection in the POD can be normal or abnornal.It depends on what the underlying disorder happens to be.Minimal fluid is almost always present.
