In brief: No association.
I am not aware of association between iud insertion and ovarian cyst development.
An iud is used to scar up the uterine lining to prevent pregnancy while the ovarian cysts develop separately inside the ovaries so i don't think there is any association.

In brief: Cysts
Women in reproductive age will create a cyst each month in order to ovulate, 2-4cms in size.
So this cyst could have been coincidental and not as a result ofthe iud.
