Dear sumer, can i give a second attempt...
Even i can't read the given usg, with the help of your history & hint...i think it is
Pelvic/Vulval henatoma:
exp:U said the patient gives h/o obstructed labour, then it would have been lead to an instrumental delivery(most probably),that can lead to rupture of paravaginal venous plexus (black fluid in USG).
Pelvic/Vulval hematoma a/w urinary incontinence.
so that is my answer !
