Anyone had a corpus luteal cyst for a while?

Did you have it removed? Mainly I want to know if you "felt" better afterwards. I have a cyst now, had one 6 years ago, and at the time of the first, started feeling tired, run down, not sleeping well, etc. Have been blaming it all on my thyroid(hashi, but normal levels). I was just thinking how a luteal cyst secretes estrogen and progesterone, and in early pregnancy, these cysts do this and made me tired then. Anyone have theirs removed and notice they felt better energy-wise? I have never been able to take b/c for these cysts as the b/c makes all my tiredness worse.

Re: Anyone had a corpus luteal cyst for a while?

Most, if not all, women experience functional and/or corpus luteum cysts. The main thing about these is that, if they don't go away, or start to cause trouble/get larger, etc., then they may need to be surgically removed. My present ob threw the birth control word around, but my cyst was a true dermoid cyst, and it HAD to be surgically removed.

My doc said that the functional cysts go back and forth between the ovaries each month.

Since I had my hernia repaired earlier this year and then had my cyst removed in March, I haven't noticed the tiredness that I occasionally felt during the winter months. I have slight anemia, too, which I don't know could possibly be related to the ovarian cysts in general.

Good luck!

P.S. Docs seem to want to put a woman on a trial of b/c pills for around 6-8 weeks to see if these non-threatening cysts go away and then have another ultrasound done to look at them. If an abdominal u/s cannot detect a cyst, then a transvaginal ultrasound is performed (not painful). I had both types done, but the abdominal u/s wasn't showing my ovary nor the cyst, so I had to empty my bladder and then undergo the other one.''

Hope this helps!
