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

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

It is colored as a result of concentrating carotenoids from the diet and secretes a moderate amount of estrogen to inhibit further release of gnrh and thus ...Read more

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

No: A corpus luteum cyst is the cyst that remains after an egg is released during ovulation. If you become pregnant, that cyst helps maintain the early 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

The corpus leuteum takes awhile to dissolve, sometime in 2nd trimester. ...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
