Corpus Luteum cyst pain

I am 10 weeks 4 days, Corpus luteum cyst was picked up on scan on left ovary I had at 6 weeks, the past 2 days I've noticed a pain exactly where my left ovary is when I've been straining being sick with morning sickness and now it's tender to move and walk around exactly in that spot. Is this normal with corpus luteum or should I be concerned it's ruptured? TIA 😌

Corpus luteum is the remnant of a ruptured cyst. Most often, the cyst was a follicle the ruptured at ovulation.

The pain you're experiencing is highly likely to be unrelated. It could be totally harmless stretching pain.

I'd get it checked out by a professional.

I had mine burst at 6 weeks. Iv never felt anything like it. It felt like someone stabbed me I got sweats/chills and was trying to throw up.
It was delicate for a while as far as I remember.

I haemorrhaged into my corpus luteum at 6 weeks, which then ruptured. Same as @clo1992, it was SEVERE pain which left me very tender for a week or two afterwards. I’m actually currently in early stages of labour and that cyst pain was far worse! Very unpleasant, but not harmful.

Best get pain checked out by a professional though

I did think I'd have severe pain if a cyst had burst! It's most likely just ligament/ stretching pain as bump has starting showing the past week and is getting bigger by the day. I shall monitor it, thanks everyone 😊
