Cysts: What you describe sounds as if you may have an infection or other condition that recurs with sex. You didn't mention whether the cyst is painful, appears in the same areas each time, or if there are things that make it worse. Some of these answers may help with diagnosing the cause. I would have the cyst looked at by your doctor while it is still there so they can determine the cause.
