In conclusion, although extremely rare, rupture of corpus luteum
in early pregnancy with hemoperitoneum can cause acute abdomen that mimics rupture of ectopic pregnancy.

of pseudopregnancy: effect of the deciduoma reaction," Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology, vol.
Ggt1-null mice demonstrated growth retardation and a severe female reproductive phenotype, which included no large antral follicles or corpus luteum
in the ovaries and a lack of response of the follicles to exogenous gonadotropin stimulation.
On Day 18 (seven days after presumable ovulation) an ultrasound evaluation for presence and diameter of the corpus luteum
in response to the hormonal treatment was performed.
With the decrease in the level of progesterone immediately after medical abortion, the hormonal control mechanism of the progesterone might have shifted and caused an abrupt increase in the production of the hormone at the corpus luteum
and adrenal cortex, causing APD.
Effect of hCG administration during corpus luteum
establishment on subsequent corpus luteum
development and circulating progesterone concentrations in beef heifers.
According to the macroscopically normal Fallopian tubes, the absence of extensive pelvic adhesions and the presence of the corpus luteum
on the right ovary, it seemed likely that after the fertilization, which could have occurred in the pouch of Douglas, the zygote was carried by intraperitoneal fluid and implanted into the vesicouterine pouch.
Impact of ovarian stimulation on corpus luteum
function and embryonic implantation.
Transfer was performed on the 7th day of the sexual cycle depending on availability of an active corpus luteum
of the 2nd and 3rd quality.
Comparison of tubal ring and corpus luteum
echogenicities: a useful differentiating characteristic.
