    I had a corpus luteum cyst (although not confrimed by u/s or anything). I went to the dr the day after getting my bfp becasue or the pain, I was thinking maybe ectopic even tho it was probably too ealry to feel an ectopic I wanted to be sure.

    The Dr told me that once you ovulate a small sac or cyst delvelops where the egg was released. This sac produces progestrone to maintain the pregnancy so you don't get a period. Sometime this cyst is painful or grows larger in some women than others. She also said juts a few drops of fluid from this cyst or sac and be painful.

    Since you have ah history of them this might not be your situation but if it is its normal and nessessary.
