Infection from IUD and menstrual cup together?

I went to my gynecologist today for my yearly checkup.  We talked about my birth control (Seasonique), and I asked about an IUD.  She had no problem giving me one.  I mentioned that I use a menstrual cup and I had heard about the possibility of suctioning the IUD out with it.  She said she wasn't concerned with it getting suctioned out, but she was more concerned with the possibility of infection.  She said that if I got a vaginal infection, the cup will hold everything close to the cervix, then the infection can travel up the strings and into my uterus. 

So...my question is for those of you who have an IUD.  Is this something I should be worried about?  Has anybody experienced infection while using a menstrual cup with an IUD?
