Could a ruptured ovarian cyst cause light spotting followed by sharp stabbing pains the following day.?

Yes, although: Usually ovarian follicles (small cysts formed every month) rupture 12-16 days after your menstrual period. When women feel pain from this it is call middleschmertz. Sometimes cysts will persist and rupture at larger sizes. You do not need to worry about this pain unless it persists or is accompanied by fever, nausea, or vomiting. Your gynecologist can help you with an exam an may be ultrasound.
