Is It Safe To Use A Menstrual Cup When You Have A Yeast Infection?

 

The dreaded yeast infection - we feel ya! It's the WORST! Even scarier? What if you're dealing with yeast infection AND your period at the same time. [cue tears of frustration]

If you are in this situation (we are SO SORRY to hear that!), you may be wondering if it's safe for you to use your SckoonCup. Do menstrual cups worsen a yeast infection? First, it is believed that menstrual cups do not worsen or cause yeast infections. That's a relief, but it’s still better to not wear something internal when dealing with a yeast infection, especially when using medical ointments to help clear up the infection. 

Can I apply the yeast infection ointment to my SckoonCup?

We do NOT recommend this as the chemical nature of the ointment may affect the materials of your menstrual cup. It's best to stick with the directions on the box when using any medicines.

Uh oh... I *may* have worn my menstrual cup while dealing with a yeast infection. Now what?

Don't stress! If you have worn your menstrual cup while dealing with a yeast infection (or bacterial infection), sterilize the cup thoroughly before your next use, then put it away for the time being.

What can I use instead of my menstrual cup? I do NOT want to wear tampons!

Cloth pads are our go-to when our SckoonCup is unavailable. Readers - help us out with this one - what do you wear when you're not able to wear a menstrual cup? Shout out in the comments below!
