STDs and menstrual cups

Hi everyone. I have a burning question on my mind this week, as I am a cup user and I got treated for gonorrhea yesterday. I am in the middle of my cycle. After each period, I rub my cup down twice in alcohol and wash it with soap and water, but I'm afraid that when my next period comes later this month, I may re-infect myself. I have a small Lunette.

Is this at all possible? I'm going to boil the hell out of it anyway and clean it again, but what is the real risk here?
