Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms could be due to the presence of the cysts. Consider visiting your gynecologist for further evaluation and investigations to see what the cysts could be due to help you start with appropriate treatment. Painful intercourse and uncomfortable bowel movements (along with free fluid in pelvis), could be suggestive of PID (pelvic inflammatory disease). You might need to be in continuous follow-up and monitoring for the ovarian cysts for further changes.
Take care.
