Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
May I ask how large the cyst is?
Hello Dr. Brims,
My Question is fairly simple.. I have corpus luteal cyst which indicates I am in the luteal phase..
If I induce myself with progesterone suppositories at this phase will it increase the chance of pregnancy..
I understand, I asked how large the cyst is, this will determine if it is likely for it to develop symptoms
The progesterone will not affect the cyst and will not cause it to grow, rupture or cause pregnancy
Ok so basically I should just let nature take its course
Yes, you should allow for the natural process to run its course
Thats unfortunate, I read some literature that suggest that progesterone suppository induction during the luteal phase would increase the chance of pregnancy ( i included the link, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2695240/).
did the size of the cyst determine your answer. Basically the fact that the cyst is only 4cm mean anything at this phase.
I have read the main points in the article
This is a take home message at the conclusion
"The intent of this manuscript was not to provide proof that progesterone therapy improves the chances of a live birth following IVF-ET or in other circumstances, eg, women with infertility, those requiring follicle stimulating drugs or those with a history of previous miscarriage"
Taken from the summary and conclusion section
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX I am so hopeful I did not pay attention those specifics.
The size of the cyst just provided information that told me that you are unlikely to develop symptoms, which I wanted to make sure of
