When does a corpus luteum cyst typically resolve in pregnancy? What does this cyst signify?

Hormone: The corpus leuteum cyst is the site where you ovulated from and the cyst that forms afterward in that spot in the ovary produces hcg, one of the main hormones of pregnancy that supports the embryo until the placenta is big enough to do so, around 7-8 weeks. The corpus leuteum takes awhile to dissolve, sometime in 2nd trimester. ...Read more

Variable: Corpus luteum cyst usually resolves with your period in 2 to 3 weeks. However, in some women it can last as long as 6 months or longer and may even grow in size and cause pain or bleeding and require surgery.

If a corpus luteum cyst ruptures, what happens to the pregnancy?

Depends: The corpus luteum produces Progesterone which "supports" the lining of the uterus during an early pregnancy. We now know that the placenta can pretty much "take over" the function of the corpus luteum earlier than was thought. A simple serum Progesterone test can tell. If the result is 25 or greater, there should be no problem. But this depends on the rest of your history. ...Read more

Can corpus luteum cyst bring anovulation? If u have anovulation bleeding can you have ectopic pregnancy?

While you can have bleeding with an ectopic pregnancy, ovulation would have to occur in order to become pregnant in the first place. ...Read more

I'n 5weeks pregnant.today u/s showed huge cyst and corpus luteum cyst.huge cyst concerns me.can i make it shrink?when in stress i feel pain there.why?

No worries: It is normal to have a cyst in the first trimester--it is called a corpus luteum and it helps to sustain a pregnancy thru the first trimester. You can't make it shrink on its own & we don't take those cysts out; we just monitor them. How big is the cyst? Make sure your OB is monitoring that it doesn't twist on itself (ovarian torsion). Corpus luteums typically resolve on their own. ...Read more
