What does an ovarian cyst bursting feel like?

The background deets: I'm 24, not on any form of HBC and have been told that I "probably" have PCOS, but have never been formally diagnosed.

So last night my boyfriend and I ended up having more intense sex than usual, both in physical intensity and duration. This was right before we went to bed, and as I was laying down, I noticed a weird sharp twinge/pain in my lower abdomen. I wear the low-rise hipster underwear, and the pain was right above the top of my underwear on the right side. Sort of where I imagine my ovaries are, but I really don't know. It was like a 2-3 on the 1-10 pain scale, so I ignored it and fell asleep.

I woke up about an hour later and got up to get a drink of water, and I was hit with this weird crampy, sharp wave of pain all the way across my lower abdomen. I doubled over, more because of the surprise of it than the actual pain. It was painful, but not ER-level painful, so I hobbled back to bed. The pain persisted (although it was better when I was totally immobile), but I managed to fall asleep.

This morning, the pain is still there but less than last night. It is a sharp pain, but achy at the same time. My lower abdomen is also tender to the touch, primarily on the right side. It is worst when I stretch or stand up for long periods of time. Heat seems to help it somewhat, but the pain killers I took this morning didn't seem to have an effect.

Does this sound like an ovarian cyst bursting? Or maybe just a weird sex-related strain (ha)? If the pain continues to get better, can I just chalk it up to a weird thing and not have to go to the doctor? It's already 10x better than it was last night.
