Usually nothing: As infertility specialists, we often encounter cysts of various descriptions in patients with no pain.

Hormones: During each menstrual cycle, the ovary produces a few small cysts known as follicles (normal). Most times, one of these follicles will enlarge and ovulate an egg (it ruptures), while the others go away. Sometimes this rupture may not occur due to a lack of signaling by the body's hormones, and the cyst continues to develop through subsequent menstrual cycles. ...Read more

Bleeding: Most cysts don't burst actually. A corpus luteum bursts as it releases an egg, which is part of normal ovulation. The "ruptured cyst" is actually bleeding into the corpus luteum after the cyst naturally ruptures, which can be quite painful for many months. But other kinds of cysts basically never burst, and in fact the ovary can stretch quite huge without rupturing. ...Read more
Trauma, over-filling: An ovarian cyst (a liquid-filled lump on the surface of an ovary) that keeps growing can get to several inches in diameter.
