"The DivaCup is not suggested for use with an Intrauterine Device (IUD)...If you are concerned about PID or have symptoms of a PID, please discontinue use of any menstrual cup. As with all gynecological concerns, please consult with your physician." (from email@example.com)
If I am concerned?? Should I be concerned is what I want to know. Is there increased risk of PID or not? Is the risk the same as with a tampon, less, or greater? My doctor seems to think that anything apart from a maxi-pad holds bacteria in the vaginal canal for too long, but maxi-pads are so 8th grade. I can't go back! What have you all learned/been told?
