Do pregnancy and Corpus Luteum Cysts go hand in hand? Or can you have one without the other?

Do pregnancy and Corpus Luteum Cysts go hand in hand? Or can you have one without the other?

No: After a follicle releases its egg from the ovary, its remains & becomes a corpus luteum producing progesterone. If the egg is not fertilized, the corpus luteum decays, breaks down & disappears. If instead it fills with fluid or blood, then you have a corpus luteum cyst. So the cyst and pregnancy do not cooexist, unless you're talking about pregnancy with a preexisting cyst. Hope that helps. ...Read more

So short of putting wrist in cast for few weeks to allow it to quiet down...& no guarantee it won't immediately re-aggravate when resume movement of wrist...You will need to see a hand (/plastic) surgeon to have it drained (w/needle, but might recur) or formally removed. ...Read more
