Ovarian cyst, or something totally different?

Today, I woke up with a pain on my left side. It's not constant, but it is fairly achy and uncomfortable. Sometimes it's in my lower pelvic region (like where I'd get menstrual cramps), sometimes its in my back on the lower left side, and sometimes it's in my left thigh. It's really uncomfortable, actually. It hurts. :(

The first day of my last period was December 29th, and I'm supposedly set to ovulate around next weekend or so. Is there anyway this could be an ovarian cyst? I don't really know when they "act up" or if there is even a set time for them to become noticeable. That was just the first thing I considered and my radiating pain is apparently a symptom of cysts.

I have had an ovarian cyst before, about 5 years ago, but I experienced no symptoms and it was only discovered when I had an ultrasound to try and figure out why my menstrual cramps were so severe. It went away on its own after I was put on HBC. I also started a new pill (after being off my old one for ~8 months) 5 days ago.

Oh and also, last month, I had a pretty intense pain for two days on the same left side. I have no idea what it was--I almost considered going to urgent care but I didn't, and then it went away on its own later in the evening.
