Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, first of all it is not the pregnancy pouch of Douglas filled with some water then it could be nonspecific if it is minimal in quantity else it need to be ruled out for abscess and ascites, antibiotic can be taken if this is infection but condition need to be confirmed first, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day
