How do they determine a ruptured cyst?

I had a hysterectomy and bladder sling 10 days today due to prolapse.  Yesterday I did more walking than usual.  Last night I woke to severe lower abdominal pain, called my OB's hotline and they said to go to the ER.  My blood work was normal but the CT scan showed a 6.2 cm ovarian cyst on my left ovary.  My right side is much more tender than my left.  Could there have been a rupture of a cyst on the right?  What do they use to determine a ruptured cyst?

HI,
Ruptured cyst is diagnosed on clinical findings and on an ultrasound scan. Finding of collapsed cyst and indirect evidence of fluid in pouch of Douglas help diagnose the ovarian cyst.
Hope this helps.
