    Question how long should i wait before changing the jewellery in my septum piercing?

    i've had it for 17 days now, and it feels pretty alright, its not sore unless it gets whacked, i know right now its a little too soon to change, but ive just got a new cbb and im itching to putit in, so can anyone suggest how long i should wait?

    I've had mine about 8 weeks or so.. I'm only just starting to change it.
    You can generally tell when it's ready to be changed or not, it just kinda has that feeling.. you don't want to be messing round with it too much whilst it's new.

    I'd advise waiting a much longer period of time.. and just be patient

    Sorry If I could just hijack this thread for a second....Can you flip them up and hide them as soon as they're done? Because I'll be needing to hide mine straight away!!

    I think i changed mine after 2 weeks but it didn't feel sore or irritated at all so i'd just wait until it feels a bit more settled
