Do I need a new cup? (first time post, eep)

Hey everyone -

I looked in the previous comments, but I haven't found quite the answer I'm looking for. In short, I may have cooked my diva cup a bit. Like many, I forgot I had it sanitizing on the stove and left it a little longer (ok, a lot longer) than I should have. The cup's structural integrity seems fine, though it is now a um, browner? Tanner? shade than usual.

I don't really know the risks of "cooked" silicone, and I'd hate to mess with ANY chemical balance in my ladybits, but the cup is pretty new so I'm also reluctant to just toss it.

tl;dr - my diva cup was in a pan for longer than it should have been, may have toasted it a bit. Still looks like a (browner) diva cup, but could I have damaged the silicone in a way that makes it inadvisable to use?
