A corpus luteum cyst on my left ovary. Only 8cm, but painful, and interefering.
Corpus Luteum Cyst. The corpus luteum that forms after ovulation is also a cystlike structure, and it is very prone to the development of fluid or bloodfilled cysts that can grow from the size of an egg to the size of a softball.
Unlike follicle cysts, corpus luteum cysts usually cause pain on only one side of the lower abdomen. If you have a corpus luteum cyst, you may be experiencing menstrual changes such as late periods or bleeding between periods. Because this set of symptoms is also associated with the dangerous condition known as tubal or ectopic pregnancy, you should be sure to go to a doctor.
So now, I am taking 5 days of progesterone, which so far has made me sleepy, and very dizzy. Like I have had 5 cocktails.
