In brief: 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.
