UTI

Does anyone have experience using a cup while having a UTI?

More accurately, I've been having an issue with a recurrent UTI without symptoms until it hits my kidneys. It's sucktastic and I've been working with my doc on what to do about it. I've gotten to the point of sterilizing the cup a couple of times mid-cycle, but I don't know if anyone else has experience with this sort of issue.

(I tried doing one cycle with disposable pads and not only was it truly awful, but I ended up doubled over with a kidney infection midway through.)
