Are there are any negatives to having silicon inside the body with regards to hormone disruption?

Silicon is fairly inert and not associated with hormone disruption, unlike the additives in plastic and other chemicals and residues found in mainstream pads and tampons.

Official advice is to opt for a silicone cup. Silicone is better than rubber because of its smooth surface which doesn’t allow Staph bacteria to build up. It’s very important that the cup is regularly and thoroughly washed using mechanical action to remove any biofilm from the surface.
