What Is The Importance Of Sterilizing A Menstrual Cup?

Sterilizing your menstrual cup plays a key role in maintaining your vaginal hygiene. The menstrual fluid that is collected in the cup may contain bacteria, making you prone to vaginal infections if not sterilized properly. Sterilization refers to the process of removing all the bacteria and other microorganisms from your menstrual cup, eliminating the potential risk of infection. It not only cleans the cup but also makes it more durable for usage.

The products that you are inserting into your vagina must be safe and clean to use. If you don’t sterilize your menstrual cup before use, you may develop a vaginal yeast infection. When “Candida”, a type of yeast which is already present around the vaginal area overgrows, a yeast infection occurs. As a result, the yeast infection causes swelling, burning, irritation, and redness around your vulva, which is the external genital area.

In order to maintain proper hygiene and avoid the risk of potential infections, you can sterilize your menstrual cup by boiling it in water. However, putting the water to boil and sterilizing the cup, followed by cleaning the vessel can be an uneasy task.
