Right lower quadrant pain. Is it a cyst or could this be from ovulation?

In brief: Depends
Ovulation is often accompanied by a pain that could last several hours called "mittelschmerz".
It actually is caused by the leak of fluid when an egg is released, so it is sort of like a cyst. However, pain that lasts is more likely to be something else, possibly a cyst, pregnancy, or even appendicitis.

In brief: Can't tell
This isn't specific enough to say: could be from either, could be appendicitis, could be something else.
If it persists or worsens see a doctor soon.
