What causes an ovarian cyst to rupture?

In brief: Menstruation

Cysts are a normal part of the menstrual cycle.
The ovary forms a "corpus luteum cyst" which ruptures near the time of menstruation if no fertilization occurs. It is thought that this may be one cause of benign ovarian cysts that keep growing.
