Have you been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst or any other type of gynecological problem?  I don't know in your particular case how much bleeding or clotting is to be expected, but I have heard that if you are soaking a thick pad in an hour or if you have very large clots, you should contact your doctor.  I have only ever had clotting after surgery and after childbirth.  In those two situations, quarter size was expected and not a problem.  I think you should contact your doctor, because unexplained clotting could be a concern.  Maybe someone else on this forum will know more about this subject.

Cysts can cause irregular periods or periods that last longer than average, but that's more due to hormone imbalances than anything else.  The symptoms of a rupture would be sudden pain, swelling/tenderness, and possible pelvic infection.  I do not think menstrual clotting is an indication of a rupture.  Cysts are outside the uterus (if they are true ovarian cysts), and ruptured ones would not show up in menstruation.
