She expressed concern over how her body might react to washing a cup with soap. I want to know whether I should tell her that the cup washes produced by the cup companies are mild enough not to be irritating. I have no experience with the cup washes; my body tolerates all kinds of hand soap that I use to clean my cup with and I have never experienced any type of vaginal infection. I also plan to tell her that some choose to simply rinse their cups with water and boil.
I notice that there are a lot of posts on this community about yeast and bacterial infections. Do cups aggravate women who are prone to infections? I want to tell her that cups are beneficial to her vaginal health... but I am starting to doubt whether that's true for those susceptible to infections.
Should I also recommend cloth pads to her?
