What Will A Doc Do About a Burst Ovarian Cyst?

Superstars!  I think I might have recently had an ovarian cyst that burst.  Kind folks here suggested I see a doc, but I have a Question I Have Always Wanted To Have Answered.  If I've got an ovarian cyst, or if I had one that burst recently, what can the doc do?  My past experiences with ob/gyns suggest that they feel my ovaries, possibly look at them with an ultrasound, and say "Yep, that's a cyst.  Take painkillers."  Should something else be happening?

I have a Mirena and I think these slightly increase the risk of said cysts, but my docs have id-ed them on ultrasounds before...I'm prone to them, apparently.  I have had sex with condoms in the past month, but I'm currently doing whatever bleeding it is you get with a Mirena (heavily and on schedule) and so I am very confident there is no ectopic pregnancy in the offing.
