Hi everyone,

I am thinking of purchasing a menstrual cup, but before I buy, is there any increased risk of contracting a yeast infection from it? Has anybody gotten a yeast infection after beginning to use their cup? If so, how commonly does it happen? I have never gotten a yeast infection before, but I am afraid of getting one if I decide to use a cup for my periods. I appreciate any answers ^^

Also if you decide to use lubricant, look at the ingredients. Glycerin and others can be a culprit for yeast infections. Take a probiotic if you are concerned, but yeast infections are pretty easy to take care of.
