UTIs and Divacup

A bit of background: I am EXTREMELY prone to UTIs. I'm in a long-distance relationship and would get one nearly every time I saw the boy (even when doing all of the "right" stuff to prevent them). It's gotten much better since a doctor gave me Macrobid to take after sex to ward off UTIs.

So this month was my first using a Divacup, and I think in time I will love it. I was very careful to wash my hands before inserting and removing it, yet I still wound up with a raging UTI by the end of my period. Any suggestions? Anyone with frequent UTIs have similar problems? I really WANT to like my Divacup!
