    Default Will flipping septum hurt?

    Hi

    I have had my septum pierced for about over 2 monthsish. When I got it pierced the piercer pirced the jewelry hidden up. Other than cleaning my piercing I have been too scared to touch it. All because of pain.

    So what I am really asking is this. After all that time will it be painful to bring the piercing down to be seen? Will it be painfull to flip it back up? I have no idea and keep scaring myself out of it.

    Thanks

    I've never had my septum pierced but in my opinion I don't think it would. If you haven't had any problems with it and it's been healing for two months I don't think there's anything to worry about. Just try flipping it and see how you go?

    2 months is the standard healing time for septum piercings, so it should be fine to flip down at this point. If you're worried, it might be a good idea to do a sea salt soak before you flip it down just to make it a little bit easier to move (although it shouldn't be difficult/painful anyway).
    I have:
    7mm left lobe, 10mm right lobe, 2nd lobes, snakebites, right double helix, left conch, septum, tongue web.
    I want:
    10mm lobes, double nostrils, left tragus, venoms.

    Your septum should be healed by now, if not fully then almost. abatha is right about the sea salt soak it will loosen/remove any crusties. The only time my septum hurt to flip up or down was if it was crusty or if the inside of my nose was very dry (I have allergic rhinitus so sometimes anti-histamines cause the inside of my nose to be very dry).
    I'm sure your piercer advised you of the 'septum face' if not best I can describe it to stretch your lips down (pout?!) and drop your chin, it elongates the centre of your nose, making the septum narrower and easier to get the jewellery past as you flip it down.
    You have had the piercing done and had 2 months healing - so you already did the 'worst' bits chances are any slight discomfort flipping the jewellery the 1st few times will be nothing.

    Pain is just pain, my dear. It'll be over in less than three seconds. Please clean it though, preferably with a saline solution. This is to obviously help move along the healing process, and also to remove any gunk/crusties/whatever else is stuck to the jewellery. If that's there, it will hurt a little more. But no, flipping it should not be a problem at all. As long as you're not agitating it on a daily basis.

    I found it actually hurt more to flip it back up again afterwards because the balls on the horseshoe bar pinched the lower part of my septum (if that makes sense? The opposite end to where it's pierced) you'll soon get the hang of it as others have said SSS will help it along, just be calm, patient and gentle
