Question:Corpus luteum is seen in right ovary.. What does it mean in an ultrasound report?
Answer: Hi dear, It is definitely normal and also a positive sign of good pregnancy.
The follicle which has released the egg gets shrunk , shrivelled , yellow because of leutein deposition and gets called corpus leuteum.
C L in the ovary produces lot of progesterone hormone which in turn supports pregnancy till the formation of the placenta. Once placenta is formed, it will take over the role of C L and starts producing progesterone.
