    Default VCH 3 years on

    My first post here so thanks for reading.

    I had a VCH performed in London UK about three years ago, piercing healed up fine with hardly any irritation and I've been enjoying it.

    I'm a keen cyclist and I commute to work, recently I bought a new bicycle with drop bars. Now when ever I use my new bike the saddle catches the jewellery and rubs to the point it can draw blood. Using my old bike does not cause any problem because it has straight handle bars and I'm not bent so far over.

    Both bikes have exactly the same make and model of saddle which is designed for ladies.

    I can't remove the jewellery because the skin at the top of my CH has closed and the small ball (3mm I think) will not pull down although there is still plenty of room for the jewellery to move up and down.

    I contacted the piercer and was told that there is nothing they can do because this type of genital piercing is now considered FGM and that I should go to hospital.

    Any suggestions?

    Being male I don't really know anything about VCHs but I am fairly sporty with running and cycling.

    It might be worth experimenting with the position of the saddle - you should be able to move it forward and back, or tilt it slightly up and down to get an improved position. I have found that quite small changes to the position of the saddle and handlebars (I tend to ride with my hands resting on the brake/gear lever hoods) makes a huge difference, especially for longer distance cycling.

    Could this help at all?
    Piercings: PA, nipples, navel, septum.
