STIs and proper cup sterilization?

Hi everyone! I'm new to this community and want to start off by thanking you all for the wealth of information available here.

I just purchased a Diva Cup 1 recently and have been waiting for my period to start ever since. I've had a couple of dry runs (I'm in that infuriating phase where I'm just waiting for my period to start so I tried wearing it to prevent any surprises but it decided not to show up yet) that were all very successful. My problem is this: I was just diagnosed with chlamydia 2 days ago and I took the single dose antibiotic yesterday, but I don't really know what to do once my period starts...Do you think it's safe to just wash and boil it again before I insert it next time? I really don't want to reinfect myself!

Thank you for your help!
