Smeeeell?! :(

I have literally been looking EVERYWHERE for an answer to this, and I haven't found much. It makes me feel like I'm the only one with this problem. Haha! My cup has the most disgusting smell I have ever smelled on it. I've been using it for...2 years or so, but only recently has the smell gotten quite this bad. Some people have said to try hydrogen peroxide, but they usually just say for staining, not odour. Some say peroxide ruins silicone? I've also heard baking soda but I'm not sure if that's for odour either. Boiling it really does not help even a bit. I have tried sunlight. I don't have a clue what to do. I actually gag every time I remove my cup because it smells so bad, and I try to wash it really well but that doesn't change anything either. Has anyone else had the smell issue? I can't live with it anymore :/ Thank you so much if you have an answer! :) I have lots of time to try stuff before I need it again so we're good there!

Some people have even said that "are you sure it's not your vagina, and not your cup?" Yes, I am very sure it's not me. How can a cup NOT smell after 2 years in and out of a vagina, really?! LOL! ;) There HAS to be something I can do about it!...
