Menstrual Cups and PCOS/Ovarian infection

 Hello everyone!
Long time stalker, first time poster. I have been using my Diva Cup for about 10 months now, and within the past 2 months I have developed severe inflammatory acne and hair on my chin, upper lip, and abdomen. My last three cycles occurred irregularly. I have also gained weight and feel more irritable. I am not sexually active, in case that matters. I've been doing some online research and it seems like I may have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. My fear is that I haven't washed my Diva Cup properly and it may have caused the infection. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Your input is much appreciated!
