    Default VCH shock

    Hi Guys,

    So bit of a weird one, to cut a long story short- I retired my VCH piercing when I became pregnant and thought not a huge amount of it at the time.

    Since I’ve lost my baby weight I’ve missed having sparkly bits and had thought about getting it redone. T

    This evening in the shower I had a look and could clearly see my top hole from where the piercing used to be, I had a small taper and madness took me and I boiled it within an inch of its life, used alcohol wipes on the area and washed my hands like a mad man and gentle I inserted the taper just thinking to myself I’d gently push and see what happened- if I was met with resistance I’d stop and leave it up to the professionals, essentially the taper did indeed go through (taper is up to a 1.6) and I couldn’t believe it (it’s been out for two years). I panicked and found the only curved bit of jewellery I could find which unfortunately happens to be a navel bar, so I again boiled this thoroughly and rewashed my hands and the area and gently inserted the curved bar (which is a lot longer than it needs to be)

    There was no blood, just a pinch and slight tenderness now. Essentially I guess what I’ve done Is stretch an old fissure?? I know navel bars are not suitable for vch’s as the bottom ball can be weighty and prompts migration.

    I also know the whole situation wasn’t ideal with not being in a super sterile environment but I do feel confident I took the best measures I could with the sudden situation of it all. is it normal for genital piercings to never really close up?

    What do do I do now? If I go to a piercer can they swap my navel bar to a more suitable piece of jewellery? :/

    thank you you for your help guys, sorry this is all a bit of a rookie thing, I’d usually always advocate going to a professional otherwise you end up in these pickles ������*♀️

    Ps- navel bar is high quality titanium bar (unfortunately bottom ball is fixed otherwise I’d justness swap it)

    That's not at all unusual for a VCH, I've also had a large gauge curved barbell in mind with a 6mm ball on the bottom with no issues. By all means, pop along to a piercer to have a quick check.

    Hi Boo, many thanks indeed for your reply. It’s a little tender and slightly swollen this morning so will treat it like a new piercing for a couple of weeks with SSS and LITHA. I’ll try and keep the current bar in for now until it seems better in a month or so, I am planning on using a PTFE bar eventually. Thanks again for your help! X

    This is really interesting to know - thanks for sharing.

    I'd always imagined that my VCH would be gone for good if I ever have kids and i might not get it done again, so nice to know you can sometimes get jewellery in it after a baby.

    Hope it works out.
    Piercings:
    Nose, tongue, navel, both nipples horizontally, VCH, septum

    Tattoos:
    Line of butterflies from lower belly round onto back and up to my shoulder, garter tatt on left thigh.

    You're welcome! Why a PTFE bar? I'd honestly suggest implant grade material that can't harbour scratches etc, especially in that area.
