(no subject)

I remember seeing somewhere someone talking about menstrual cups in Australia, but I haven’t been able to find the posts to read what was said.
My partner’s cousin is over there at the moment and my journal seems to have convinced her to use cups rather than tampons but is wondering whether there are any brands available in Australia, or if not which brand would cost the least with shipping included?

Yeast Infections & the Cup

I think I heard someone say that using a menstrual cup gave her a yeast infection.

How exactly can this happen?

Given that you sterilize the cup before and after each period...

Does it have something to do with it 'plugging up' your vagina and not letting it breathe, so to speak?

Have any of you noticed that using the Keeper / Divacup / Mooncup led to an increase in yeast infections?

Thanks!
