Corpus Luteum Cysts and No Ovulation

by Desiree Myles
(Grand Cayman)


Dear Desiree,

A corpus luteum cyst forms after the egg has been released during ovulation. The egg is inside a sac called follicle. At ovulation, the egg is released and the follicle becomes the corpus luteum and begins to secrete progesterone to prepare the uterus for pregnancy in case the egg becomes fertilized. If no pregnancy occurs, the corpus luteum normally breaks down and is released through menstruation. In some cases, the corpus luteum fails to break down and becomes filled with fluid turning into a cyst.

Corpus luteum cysts do not pose any problems to conception unless they becomes bigger in size. they usually tend to shrink back and disappear within a few cycles. If a woman gets pregnant with corpus luteum cysts, the pregnancy is most likely not affected.

Symptoms of Corpus Luteum Cyst

These type of cysts are often asymptomatic with no symptoms present. It is possible for them to grow in size and cause bleeding if the rupture. This can cause pain and depending on the size they may need to be surgically removed not to cause damage to the ovary and impair ovulation.

In fact, in some rare cases corpus luteum cysts cause the ovary to twist leading to ovarian torsion. The result can be serious because if they prevent blood flow to the ovary. If this happens, you will have pain often accompanied with nausea. So, make sure to talk to your doctor as soon as possible.

Also, corpus luteum cysts may rupture and cause sudden sharp lower abdominal pain and bleeding.
If you have a corpus luteum cyst you should be able to conceive and should not worry unless you have any of these symptoms. Make sure to talk to your doctor and if the symptoms are severe, go to the emergency room.

In some cases, women may develop more than one cyst like in women with polycystic ovaries have many causing poor ovulation cycles.

Natural Treatment Of Corpus Luteum Cysts

Corpus luteum cysts can be treated successfully naturally to prevent surgery and to ensure healthy ovulation. Natural therapies assist the body's natural healing process and speed up shrinking of these cysts preventing rupture and scar tissue formation
after rupture.

If you are interested in using a natural program that helps women who are trying to conceive, I recommend the Ovarian Wise Fertility Kit, which is designed to support the body in helping to clear out ovarian cysts naturally. The herbs and supplements in this program help to balance hormones, thus slowing cyst growth; and dissolve existing cysts through Fertility Enzyme Therapy and therapeutic Castor Oil Abdomen Packs.

Enzymatic therapy helps the body to breakdown corpus luteum cysts, reducing their size, and helping their completely elimination over time. The castor Oil packs increases blood circulation to the ovaries allowing for increase nutrients, antioxidants, and oxygen to reach the ovaries for faster tissue repair.

Other important therapies present in this kit are:

Progesterone Cream: John Lee, M.D. the pioneer in the use of natural progesterone cream, recommends treating ovarian cysts with 40mg of natural progesterone treatment for 2-3 months on days 10 - 26 of the cycle (day 1 being the first day of your period). Natural progesterone is safe to take and is the same molecule that your body produces. The function of natural progesterone cream is to center act the negative effects of excess estrogen (caused by chemicals in your water, food and environment), which stimulates cyst formation and growth.

DIM: DIM is a nutritional supplement that comes from cruciferous vegetables and has been studied for its abilities to assist the body break down and release estrogen. Cleansing the body of excess estrogen reduces the speed of ovarian cyst growth, and cause the cysts to stop growing completely.

If you want to learn more about natural ways to treat and prevent corpus luteum cysts by knowing which foods you should avoid and which one you should eat. Also, which specific life style changes you need to implement to assist your body in preventing corpus luteum cyst to form or reoccur, I heartily recommend reading Ovarian Cyst Miracle eBook.

This book is based on clinically researched 3-step system based on nutritional approach and holistic medicine that helps women eliminating all types of ovarian cysts and PCOS quickly and naturally. This step-by-step approach can be easily applied by anyone and it has proven very successful.

Fertility Blessings!

Vitex For Absent Periods And No Ovulation
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

If you are not having periods, you are probably not ovulating. With corpus luteum cyst and no periods, you should consider talking to your doctor and make sure no other condition like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is present. Also, your doctor will most likely recommend a more throughout fertility evaluation with blood testing to assess hormonal levels and tests like AMH test to detect ovarian reserves.

Also thyroid hormone levels and other tests like blood glucose may be required. In some cases an ultrasound will be necessary in order to determine the size of the corpus luteum cyst and if the follicles and developing properly.

Natural health offers a wide range of solutions to hormonal imbalance related to absent periods and ovarian cysts.

For example, numerous studies have shown how vitex agnus castus may help women with absent periods re-establish their regular menstrual and ovulatory cycles.

A double-blind clinical study conducted in Germany in 1993 reported that 52 women with irregular periods and high prolactin levels improved significantly after taking vitex agnus castus for 3 months.

Another study of 20 women with secondary amenorrhea took a Vitex agnus castus extract for 6 months. At the end of the study 10 of the 15 women had a return of their menstrual cycles. (Gynakol Praxis, 1990, 14(3): pp.489-95)
