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

What is a the difference between a corpus luteum cyst and other cyst? I have a corpus luteum cyst that is 2.2cm and worried. Doc says wait and see!

Ovarian cyst: are you still menstrating? If so your corpus lutem cyst is most likely normal and is what is left when the cycst that grew the egg for that cycleon your ovary ruptures when you ovulate.

Hope this helps. ...Read more
