I have a cyst on my left ovary, and my doctor says it's from my last cycle, one problem with that, the last cycle I had I got pregnant, how is that possible? And is an inch big for an ovarian cyst?

I thin kthat is normal, I had one still their at my first ultrasound 5 weeks, and then it was gone at my 7 week ultrasound.

Oh, not to worry. This cyst comes from the corpus luteum. After an egg is released from the ovary, the corpus luteum is responsible for making the hormone progesterone. It is this hormone that prepares the uterus for pregnancy. A typical corpus luteum is round and fluid-filled and can range in size from less than two centimeters (about an inch) to six centimeters or more. On ultrasound, a fluid-filled (cystic) structure greater than three centimeters is technically cla__sified as an ovarian cyst, even though it may well represent a normal finding. Ovarian cysts usually don't cause any symptoms. In fact, corpus luteum cysts appear toward the end of the menstrual cycle, last into early pregnancy, and then usually resolve over a period of time without any special treatment.
