If the corpus luteum cyst was broken how long till the pains is gone?

Three months, more.: A corpus luteum is formed after ovulation, when the egg is released to be fertilized. It secretes estroigen and progesterone. If conception does not occur, it involutes and goes away. But it can gret filled with fluid or blood and become a cyst, which can take 3 mos to go away. It can grow and cause pain and have complications, like rupture, which causes sharp pain and need emergent treatment. ...Read more

Corpus Luteum (Definition)

The corpus luteum (latin for "yellow body") is a temporary endocrine structure in female mammals that is involved in the production of relatively high levels of Progesterone and moderate levels of Estradiol and inhibin a. 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

How do I know if I had a follicular cyst or a corpus luteum cyst.?

How do I know if I had a follicular cyst or a corpus luteum cyst.?

Unnecessary to know: They are two phases of the same thing. An ovarian follicle should rupture releasing an egg. If this doesn't happen, the follicle keeps enlarging turning into a cyst. The ruptured follicle is called the corpus luteum. If the escape opening seals off, fluid can accumulate causing a corpus luteum cyst. An ultrasound may determine which you have but it isn't important to know; they act the same. ...Read more

No : A corpus luteum cyst provides the hormonal support that an early pregnancy needs to survive. It does not steal nutrition from the baby. It is not a living organism. It is a cyst. ...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

Is a "hemorrhagic corpus luteum" and a hemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst the same thing? Would either make an ovary look cancerous to a gynonc?

Is a "hemorrhagic corpus luteum" and a hemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst the same thing? Would either make an ovary look cancerous to a gynonc?

Ovarian Cysts: You didn't give your age, but hemorrhagic corpus lutein cysts are not cancerous, although they can rarely "burst" & bleed into the abdomen and cause considerable discomfort. Any cystic lesion in the ovary should be screened by ultrasound, pelvic exam and possibly other modalities by your gynecologist to rule out cancer, which may be seen over age 45, but often in younger women in their 20's & 30s. ...Read more

I have a small corpus luteum cyst but also a "simple fluid filled" 8 cm cyst the mfm ob said is likely to rupture. Will it hurt the baby? I'm 21wks.

I have a small corpus luteum cyst but also a "simple fluid filled" 8 cm cyst the mfm ob said is likely to rupture. Will it hurt the baby? I'm 21wks.

Probably not: If the sonographic appearance of the 8 cm asymptomatic ovarian cyst is "suggestive of a benign lesion" and you and your MFM Ob are not suspecting a malignancy, the risks of ov. cyst rupture, torsion, bleeding ...at 21 wks are relatively small compared to those of surgical exploration. If it becomes smaller and rises above your pelvis, it is not likely to affect the course of your labor either. ? ...Read more

Hi just wonderingif u could tell me what a haemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst and a hydrosalpinx is?

One normal,one not: Corpus luteum is a 100% normal finding after ovulation - hemorrhagic means there's some bleeding or clot involved, usually not a problem. Hydrosalpinx means fluid collection in tube: this is always abnormal, but can range from trivial to very significant. ...Read more

Corpus luteum cyst related to conceiving?

Not conceiving.: A corpus luteum is formed after ovulation, when the egg is released to be fertilized. It secretes estroigen and progesterone. If conception does not occur, it involutes and goes away. But it can gret filled with fluid or blood and become a cyst, which can grow and cause pain and have complications, like rupture and torsion (twisting) which can cause the ovarian blood flow to be cut off. ...Read more
