Just wondering if any of you have this problem. I have been using the Diva cup + Lunapads (pantiliners) for a year or two, the last year I have had MAJOR probs with yeast infections starting within the week that my period ends, just about every month. DH and I have been treated with oral meds too (although he has never had any symptoms). I have watched my diet, am not on the pill or antibiotics, etc. I am suspecting it is from the cup, maybe the pads.
I just wash the cup well in hot hot water with soap and rinse it, rinse it well bewteen emptying it, etc. I do not wash the pads on hot as they do have a nylon inner layer and I don't want to lose the waterproof qualities.
Do I boil the cup at the end of my cycle or something? I would not want to give this system of cup/pads up, but the months I have switched to disposables I have had no problems. Hmmm....
