Your pain does sound like like it could be related to an ovarian cyst, but there is no way to know without running tests.  Ovarian cysts are very common and most women get one in their lifetime.   The cyst is not a sign that you are not producing eggs.  They usually don't affect fertility.  You should get in to see your gynecologist who will order some tests.   It is very common to have painful menstruation.   I don't think anything you listed sounds indicative of ovarian cancer.  You should try posting on the Medhelp Ovarian Cysts or Womens Health forums.  Best wishes.
