I just started using the softcup/instead cups. I have two left over from a pack that I bought a long time ago. My question is this: is it okay to re-use them after washing them out? They aren't easy to find here in France, so I would have to order them off the internet. I used to have a keeper cup (same idea, but re-usable) but can't seem to find it.
I know that it says not to re-use them, but has anyone done it? Or are you at bigger risk for infection or something?
I've never reused mine just because I get worried about those things. I know that rinsing it out and putting it back in could increase your chance of introducing excess bacteria into your vagina. And in turn, your cervix. I wouldn't.
