sterilizing cup after yeast infection?

So... I got my first ever yeast infection while I was on my period (and using my diva cup). I didn't know I had a yeast infection but I do, and I'm pretty sure I had it while on my period, because the symptoms were there around the 3rd day of my 6 day period. Now, I've soaked my cup in hot water/alcohol solution and boiled it. I absolutely do not want to get another yeast infection if I use my cup for my next period. Should I do anything else to be sure the cup is sterilized?
