Is it possible that menstrual cups can leach bad chemicals into your system? Does it matter which type of cup you use? (natural gum rubber vs. medical grade silicone)

I would assume it would leach very little or not at all if it is made of medical grade silicone but I don't really have anything to back that up.

Also, does anyone know how the different plastics are made... and how long it would take them to degrade? I'm curious which cup is the most environmentally friendly.

It's not a question on use so I don't know if this is the right community to ask but these questions were just milling around in my head today.

Thanks.
