OBGYN 's  Response
The sonogram of your wife has shown a space occupying lesion or SOL, which means a mass located in the region of the right tube and the ovary extending into the pouch of Douglas or POD, situated behind the uterus. The doctor opined the mass to have evolved from the tubes and the ovaries and the clinical picture of profuse bleeding correlates with this finding. It is secondary to a past infection most often. Treatment would include antibiotic, observation and if there is no response, go for surgical removal. Hope this helps.
