Preserving the lifespan of TPE

I'm adjusting my birth control, so what's been happening to me is I've been getting two extremely light "periods" in a month instead of a regular one. Because I'm using the cups more regularly (and cleaning/sterilizing them between uses), I'm thinking that they have a bigger chance of getting worn down faster. I know they're supposed to last years, but if my cycle continues to be wonky from all this hormone adjusting (I have PCOS symptoms), all the effects from frequently using and cleaning them might stack up.

I was wondering if you guys have any tips for keeping your TPE in good shape. I've two MeLunas, a small and a medium. They both happen to be soft, in case that also affects their lifespan.
