Pelvic effusion is a familiar gynecological condition, generally divided into physiological, pathological, and pathological pelvic effusion.
Normal pelvic fluid accumulation
The normal value of female pelvic fluid accumulation must be below 10MM. Physiological pelvic fluid accumulation is less than 10mm. In women, during the first few days of their physiological day, some menstrual blood flows back to the pelvis along the fallopian tubes. Ultrasound may reveal a small amount of fluid accumulation. Or after ovulation, follicular fluid will flow into the pelvic cavity with ruptured follicles, usually in small amounts, and a few with slightly more follicles will be seen under ultrasound. These two types can naturally disappear without treatment and will not cause harm to the body.
There is very little fluid present in the normal pelvic cavity, mainly to reduce friction between the visceral peritoneum and the parietal peritoneum. Sometimes, due to inflammatory factors, it may seep out, exceeding the normal amount of fluid (fluid accumulation). Medications can reduce inflammation, and the fluid naturally absorbs. During ovulation and early pregnancy, physiological pelvic fluid may be produced within 10mm, which can generally be absorbed by oneself within 1 or 2 months.
Does pelvic fluid accumulation affect pregnancy
Pelvic effusion is an inflammatory exudate in the pelvic cavity, which generally occurs after the inflammation of the endometrium. Slightly viscous fluid exuded from the swollen cells of the endometrial tissue is wrapped by surrounding tissue and gradually forms a cystic mass. Generally speaking, pelvic fluid accumulation is divided into physiological and pathological types. Physiological pelvic fluid accumulation often occurs in women after ovulation or early pregnancy, and can naturally disappear without treatment. It also has no impact on pregnancy. Pathological gynecological pelvic fluid accumulation is often caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, adnexitis, or endometriosis. Without treatment, the accumulation will gradually increase, leading to female infertility
The causes of pelvic fluid accumulation affecting pregnancy
1. Female pelvic fluid accumulation may be caused by chronic infectious lesions, such as inflammation of the gynecological system, ovaries, and fallopian tubes, as well as by tuberculosis and tumors, which have a long-term impact on fertility.
2. Pelvic fluid accumulation can easily cause infertility such as pelvic adhesions and blocked fallopian tubes. Usually, there are symptoms such as lower abdominal pain, lumbosacral pain, and increased vaginal discharge. Women should check for symptoms such as lower abdominal tenderness and cord thickening. Considering chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, it is necessary to actively treat the aggravation of inflammation and the increase in fluid accumulation.
3. Most pelvic fluid accumulation is caused by inflammation, which is chronic pelvic inflammatory exudation. There are also a few cases of ectopic pregnancy rupture, corpus luteum rupture, pelvic abscess, chocolate cyst, and ovarian cancer. These inflammations can also affect the binding of sperm and eggs, affecting pregnancy.
