Low, not zero: Impossible to say; probably not too likely, but not impossible either.

Family Medicine 29 years experience
Don't guess: Don't guess. This isn't the best way to get pregnant but it can occur. Consider getting a home pregnancy test around the 1st day of missed period.

Does painful ovulation mean there will be a painful menstrual cycle?

Not necessarily: Painful ovulation can potentially be caused by a large preovulation cyst, or a small amount of blood was released during ovulation, or scar tissue being present around the ovary. Subsequent menstruation may not be painful.
