How soon can a pelvic ultrasound tell if your preganant? Can a corpus lutem be a early sign of pregenacy? Can a ovarian cyst be a very early sign?

How soon can a pelvic ultrasound tell if your preganant?  Can a corpus lutem be a early sign of pregenacy? Can a ovarian cyst be a very early sign?

4 weeks: Earlier ultrasound can show signs such as thickened endometrium but pregnancy cannot be confirmed until a gestational sac is seen. A yolk sac & embryo are more diagnostic but may not be seen until later. An HCG level of 1, 000 should correlate with a gest sac. A cl or ovarian cyst occur with ovulation so are not early signs of pregnancy. Take care. ...Read more

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. It secretes estrogen/progesterone in preparation for possible fertilization. If no fert occurs, the cysts goes away. If you are not still menstrating cyst needs to be followed in ultrasound. Hope this helps. ...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. Eventually it will break and the woman may not even be aware that this has happened. The period may be delayed because there is no Progesterone phase of the cycle to respond to. The corpus luteum can also become cystic. ...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
