In brief: Depends on cyst
Ovarian cysts usually do not cause infertility.
Most ovarian cysts that rupture have no effect on future fertility. Ovarian endometriomas however are associated with infertility, but a standard infertility evaluation including assessment of sperm characteristics and patency of fallopian tubes is still recommended even if this was the case.

In brief: Cysts and Fertility
A ruptured cyst is usually not a cause of infertility by itself.
If the cyst is from endometriosis then you probably would have difficulty with fertility because the cyst implies severe disease. If a ruptured cyst cause scar tissue the it could cause infertility. Recurrent cysts can prevent normal ovulation and medications sometimes make the cysts worse. See an rei physician for fertility advise.
