Hi~! I think I read somewhere that while a menstrual cup could be used up to 10years, about 2years later using it, the silicone material could become a place that might brings up fungi problems more easily than before.

1.
However, many of long-term menstrual cup users said they have been using their cups more than 5years, so I wonder how many years should I use a cup before buying another cup? (just assuming it gets taken care of well.)

I'd like to experience as many brands as possible but it's a quite pricey thing to do, right?
Since I like what I am using now(Fleur), because of both its reasonable price and useability, I'm considering buying more of the same cup.
Do you think if I buy a few more new cups in advance (but not using them until I need to change the one I am already using), would their quality become somewhat naturally deteriorated, even though I would't use them for a few years?

2.
Many brands offer their pouch for storage. But I also read that it's better to put the cup, after finishing each cycle, in an enclosed container than a cotton pouch where is air-permeable. (Of course the cup should be completely sterilized and dried.) Which way do you guys store your cups after finishing a cycle??

I am sorry there's no link to confirm where this words came from. I just randomly read things related to menstrual cup on the internet and got these questions in my head..

Don't store your cup in an air-tight container. Bacteria and mold will breed. Some people use baby socks instead of the pouch. They get lost in the laundry easily so get a couple of pairs.

Oh, now that's a good idea! Thank you!
