What is Luteum Cyst?- Causes, Symptoms and Ayurvedic Treatment


Ovaries are the principal female reproductive part and each woman is blessed with 2 ovaries, ovoid in shape and occupy either side of the womb more specifically in ovarian fossa , held in position by ligaments. The ovaries have been assigned the important 2 reproductive functions i.e they manufacture oocytes (eggs) and secondly , they are held responsible for the production of sex hormones called extro heb and progesterone , mastered by gonadotropin releasing hormone via hypothalamus and signals pituitary to release follicle stimulating hormone and luteinsing hormone collectively accounted for the menstrual changes occurring in the body.

Woman’s reproductive system systematically arranges the body for pregnancy which results in menstrual cycles regardless of the demands otherwise.This menstrual cycle can be staged into 4 phases, a menstrual phase ,follicular phase , and a luteal phase and an ovulating phase.

  • The follicles are those which house the developing ova and undergo development subsequently .
  • The literal phase is characterised by the production of hormones by and large , progesterone.

What is a corpus luteum?

It is formed from the empty follicle left behind post ovulation and is a temporary gland that produces progesterone whose function has been highlighted previously. This little superstar gland is also liable in fixing the lining of the uterus in its place , as and when the egg is fertilized, it is facilitated to burrow deeper into the endometrium (lining) and develop. The corpus luteum serves its duty only for 14 days and then it retires! The uterus breaks down in the form of menstruation.

Luteum Cyst

Corpus luteum cyst

Corpus luteum cyst is a category of ovarian cyst often presented as a result of a failure or degeneration of CL. Instead , the corpus luteum continues to grow and is identified as a corpus luteum cyst. This cyst may be benign , painless and may resolve on its own  , as in the cases commonly found .


As stated earlier , due to the less severity of the symptoms , a corpus luteum cyst may go unnoticed and it heals itself after a few cycles.However , if one experiences a mild twinge of a single sided pain or any tenderness during the menstrual cycle , concern should be raised. If left untreated for a long time , the CL cyst tends to burst, which acts primarily on internal bleeding. Internal bleeding steps further into ovarian torsion in which the ovary twines around surrounding tissues.This may be presented as shoulder pain, vomiting , nausea , fainting , dizziness and one-sided sharp pain in the lower abdomen and pelvis.

Ayurveda’s take on cysts

Ayurveda adopts a traditional,holistic approach towards any disorders,ayurveda mull over the tridosas that administer our body viz vata pitta and kapha,the normal status of the former connotes a healthy body while an imbalance signifies a disease,ayurveda places its faith in uprooting the diseases as a whole rather than treating to superficial symptoms.Ayurveda reviews ovarian disorders under the combined derangement of rasa and rakta dhatu. The excess of which is said to be packed as cysts containing fluid in the ovaries , and Ayurveda names it kaphaja granthi .Often deemed as slightly painful , this skin coloured gland may slowly increase its size and on bursting , a thick white fluid is oozed out
