There are a lot of possible causes of abdominal pain. I am presuming that your pain is in the right lower quadrant given your report of the ovarian cyst.
Ovarian cysts can cause pain, particularly when they rupture. Another possibility is appendicitis. Colitis can also cause this problem.
Some of these issues can be serious so I would recommend you see a doctor about this as soon as possible.
