Antibacterial properties

My apologies for posting so much, but I have yet another question that Google hasn't given me any answers to. What exactly are the "antibacterial properties" of menstrual cups that I always hear about? Considering that the vagina is populated with bacteria, if the cup were antibacterial, wouldn't this be bad news (e.g. yeast infection) for the vagina?
