Corpus Haemorrhagicum meaning blood body. After ovulation the dominant follicle collapses in on itself and blood vessels within the Theca layer are ruptured causing haemorrhage within the follicle. The blood forms a clot, the distinguishing feature of a Corpus Haemorrhagicum. The Corpus Haemorrhagicum is the transitional stage between the Dominant follicle and Corpus Luteum.
