Pelvic pain: A late period in itself should not cause pelvic pain. Rupture of an ovarian cyst can - sometimes the (follicle) cyst that released the egg, e.g., at the time of ovulation can fill with blood. This is called a hemorrhagic cyst (cyst filled with blood).

Generally No: Ovarian nerve supply that relays pain is through the sympathetic nervous system between t11, t12 and L1 levels.
