1st of all, I am glad for this forum and the chance to express my concerns with this product. I have had my Diva Cup for two years now and its worked beautifully. However, I just noticed (as in just now when my period started) that there is a tear in the silicone. It is right above one of the suction holes on the lip. The suction hole is still closed but it runs on the outside of the lip to the inside just above the hole. I boil my cup every period start, can this weaken the silicone. I would like to keep my cup. I appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.
