Air bubble in Diva Stem, or tear?


How was everyone's New Years? Good I hope! Ok, I have a quick question. I had to really tug on my diva stem with my nails today to get it out, and being the paranoid individual I am, I had to examine the stem for any possible tears that I may have inflicted through using my nails. I found a small perfectly shaped circle on the inner side of the stem wall. The circle looks too circular to be a result of a tear, but I don't recall an air bubble being there before. I know it's not a big deal, but I really need to know if the silicone is really that sensitive that I need to be weary of ripping it with my nails. Do any of you Diva owners notice such a bubble on the inside of your stem? I thoroughly examined my cup when I first got it (one cycle ago) and I'm sure I would remember seeing that.

Thanks Ladies!
