Your cycle is of 33 days usually ovulation occurs 14 days before onset of menstrual cycle .There is follicle on left side of ovary which may rupture in few days .
POD is pouch of douglas (Rectouterine pouch) .-space between anus and uterus . It is lowest part of peritoneal cavity .During Ovulation some amount of fluid is collected after rupture of follicle which usually gets absorbed with time.So every thing is normal till now.
