Corpus Luteum Cyst

Get the scoop on corpus luteum cysts and other ovarian cysts during pregnancy -- and how to keep yourself and baby healthy if you have one.

What’s the best way to treat a corpus luteum cyst during pregnancy?

Your doc will likely watch you closely to make sure your cyst goes away within a few months.

What can I do to prevent a corpus luteum cyst?

You can’t really, but it’s important that you tell your OB ASAP if you have any of the symptoms of one, so it can be diagnosed as early as possible

What do other pregnant moms do when they have ovarian cysts?

“When my midwife called back last week to follow up after my ultrasound, she mentioned that I have a cyst on my ovary but that it would likely resolve on its own. I guess there’s nothing I can do about it, and for all I know I’ve had them every time I have been pregnant.”

“I had a cyst on my ovary that showed up via ultrasound at 8.5 weeks. I actually knew I had it before that; it was really hurting, so I asked the ultrasound technician to check, and there it was. My midwife just said to take Tylenol and wait for it to go away. It finally stopped hurting around 12 weeks-ish.”

“I have a huge cyst as well on my right ovary. My doctor said it should be fine and resolve on its own around 11-12 weeks when the placenta takes over.”

Are there any other resources for ovarian cysts?
