Are there any known causes of persistent corpus luteum?

Are there any known causes of persistent corpus luteum?

Yes: Fertility drug treatments (like Clomid (clomiphene) and injectable meds like HCG and hmg and fsh) increase the odds of forming corpus luteum cysts that can persist beyond the typical luteal phase duration. On "natural" cycles (no meds), it can happen for unknown reasons but is less common. ...Read more

Can late ovulation be caused by leftover corpus luteum cysts from the previous cycle?

Can late ovulation be caused by leftover corpus luteum cysts from the previous cycle?

Yes: Sometimes the ovary does not ovulate and the follicle cyst persists. It will continue to enlarge and can become as big as a baseball.

Does the breakdown of the corpus luteum cause period pain?

Does the breakdown of the corpus luteum cause period pain?

Not exactly: Resolution of the corpus luteum at the end of each cycle does not necessarily directly cause pelvic pain. However, if not pregnant, corpus luteum regresses, Progesterone drops, which causes menstruation to occur. The menstrual cramps are associated with menstrual flow as the uterus contracts down to empty out the uterus and control bleeding. ...Read more

Can simple corpus luteum cyst ( not the persistent one) cause to delay ovulation for 4 weeks?

Yes, maybe, no: There's some confusion in the language here, i'll give my best answer: any persistent cyst (not just corpus luteum) can delay the next ovulation/period. A "simple" cl, if you mean one that behaves normally, will never delay your period/ovulation unless you got pregnant in that cycle. Does that help? ...Read more

Corpus Luteum: If you menstruate every month, you make a corpus luteum every month. It usually goes away every cycle. Not ovulating can make you miss periods, or hormone imbalances can as well. Most women will resume normal cycles after 3 or 4 months. If not, call your doctor for some help. ...Read more
