BV, Diva Cup, Menstruation

What I thought was a yeast infection just a day or two ago is, instead, probably a case of BV. (Long sigh.) Unfortunately, before I can go to the gyno, I started my period today! (Another long sigh.) My question is... can I use my Diva Cup until I can get in to see my doctor? Will it make matters worse? Informatively, I boil my cup on a regular basis... so will boiling my cup every day during my period be a better option? Honestly, I'm nervous about using pads (which I haven't used in over 10 years, probably) while there is an odor.

And... to prove that I DID look through memories, this was the only entry I could find on the subject and it didn't really answer my question... or, rather, the answers were few and didn't seem certain.

Thanks in advance for the help.
