The new SofSense ring has a tiny, but very important pin size hole. This is supposed to be here and is not a sign of a tear. Examine your ring carefully when it is new so you know what a “good” ring looks like.
Each SofSenseTM ring is designed for 3-5 uses. Wash it in warm soap and water between uses. Dry completely. If you notice any seal, we recommend using a new SofSenseTM ring. Always keep a supply on hand.
