Talking about menstrual cups to doctors

I'm wondering if any of you have had a talk to doctors or nurses about menstual cups, I mean indepth conversations explaining cup benefits, and what was thier reaction?

My experience is that many doctors, nurses, etc. seem to be very unaware of all the options, the one nurse I mentioned cups to told me off for using them, saying that cups couldn't possibly be clean, and I know I'm sick of having to take pads with me to sexual health clinics to avoid being given commercial pads. It's a little troubling to me that those working within sexual health don't know about 'alternative' options. It'd be good for them to know about these options and be able to suggest them to women who'd find them beneficial, would it be wise to approach doctors and clinics about this subject? Then how would you go about it? Am I missing something here that prevents us and companies themselves 'promoting' (making aware of benefits to health) there products to the medical world?
