    Default Stretching Question

    I've been stretching my ears since November, with ears starting 12g. It's now March and I'm preparing to go into 8g.
    Before, I would use tapers to introduce the plug, but this time the taper hurt. Curiously, putting in the 8g plug itself is fine, no pain or discomfort. However If i put the 8g taper in, it hurts 3/4 way - has this happened to anyone else before? I just found it strange.

    Are you sure the taper and/or the plug is 8g? I assume you went to 10g as well?

    I never really used tapers, just round ended plugs.

    Yes, I went to 10g.
    Well, they were packaged at 8g, so I'm hoping they were .
    I'm going to go on a limb and assume the taper isn't 8g then (most logically explanation) - was just wondering if this "phenomenon" had happened to others before.
    Either way, I'm now at 8g - Now another 3 month wait

    Yeah people get sent wrong sizes by places all the time. You can measure them with a ruler etc.
