Long term Cup use

Hey, ladies.

I got a ParaGard inserted on Monday and as expected I've been bleeding heavier than usual. My typical cleaning regimen was to boil it before menstruating and to rinse and scrub it with my fingers in hot water after that when emptying it. Considering "spotting" is supposed to occur for at least the first 3 months with this IUD, I need a long term solution. It's been very viscous, making the Cup harder to clean. Should I invest in something like Diva Wash, and how frequently should it boiled?
