Variable.: It sounds like you had a ruptured follicular cyst. This happens when the normal ovarian follicle doesn't release an ovum but instead continues to grow. (In your case in grew to the point it ruptured.) Follicular cysts don't produce the normal pattern of hormones that regulate that menstrual cycle. If your cycles are usually regular, you should have a period within 4 weeks.
