Hi Anon,

Sorry to hear about your pain. When an ovarian cyst ruptures, it usually causes a sharp pain on one side of the abdomen. This matches your description, so it's quite possible that a cyst ruptured.

Since you're 2 weeks away from your period, another possibility may be ovulation. However, the cramping and pain from ovulation is usually not severe or "explosion"-like.

The good news is that ovarian cysts aren't usually serious. However, you should consult your gynecologist as soon as possible to rule out any other conditions, such as cancer.

Good luck, and let us know when you feel better!
