What causes fluid around the ovary?

To overcome the problem of endometriosis my daughter underwent hysterectomy at the age of 39 last year. One overy was also removed. Now as she was complaining pain, an ultra sound scan was taken. The report says there is free fluid around existing overy. Why there is fluid? Does it require surgery?

Hi,

Free fluid in the pouch of Douglas around ovary can be seen normally too. It depends on the quantity and other associated symptoms. Is the other ovary normal? Get a direct check-up with a gynecologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr B. Radhakrishnan. Nair, OBGYN
