preventing yeast infections

Hey everyone,

Just wondering, is there anything in particular you do during your period with your cup to help keep a yeast infection from occuring? I'm still recovering from an infection from my last cycle with the Diva and I'm really not ready to do it all over again. My Dr suggested that I let my cup dry completely before putting it back inside me, but that may not always be feasible if I'm out and in a hurry.

Just as a side note: I'm a vegan, so I won't do anything with yougurt to help prevent/heal infections (I say this because I've seen it mentioned a few times).

Thank You!
