I got my PA 3 years ago, currently at a 4 ga. I was something I always wanted to do and soooo happy I did it. Not really sure where this impulse is coming from, but I'm seriously thinking about converting my PA to an apadravya. Anyone have any advice / encouragement / discouragement? My PA piercing was without event - a moment of pain, a bit of blood, short and more or less uneventful healing process.
Thanks - this forum has been awesome for information and support!
I already had a pa so this was a reverse pa in truth! My existing pa was at 2g and there was no way i was going to an appadravya as big as that! Discussing the options with my piercer he said we could put a 'plug' in my pa fistula and run what would be the botton of the appadravya through that! That sounded good to me, so i could go for 12 guage piercing.
Very nervous by this point but i wasnt backing out now! First out came my pa and got the perfect size hollow plug in the fistula. Now breathe deep..... And the piercing needle is through! Yes, it hurt. Quite abit.
I got my first piercing in August 2012. An 8ga SS PA. I had stretched the PA to a 2ga SS. But the entire time where the jewelry touched my urethra the glans was red and irritated. I finally gave up on the piercing and took it out. The hole shrunk to about an 8 or 6 ga. Nine months after taking it out I put in the 8ga SS curved barbell hoping it had time to completely heal. Within one day the redness and irritation had returned. So out it came again. Now I have a hole in my penis with no jewelry to decorate it. I decided to get an apadravya.
So I finally got it together and walked into Piercology in Columbus Ohio two days ago to finally have my first body piercing, an apadravya. I had been checking this out and was expecting intense pain and blood, with several days of agony.
The piercer managed to relax me, and the pain was very sharp indeed for about a microsecond as the needle went through, but then that was it. It bled for about 1/2 hour after, but has been fine since except for a few spots. Pain wise I've hardly noticed it over the last two days.
So, I've had a PA since the first months of this year, and I now find myself very interested in an apadravya. My idea is, naturally, to just get the glans pierced since the bottom fistula is already fully healed.
I've read quite a bit about the healing time, and care, and I would really appreciate any info and/or personal experience with the apadravya healing. Really, any info you guys can give will help me a great deal in deciding if I should get it done.
So I have a PA that I sized up to a 2G. Was just getting bored and decided to go for the plunge and get an Apadravya. After a long wait and building up a ton of courage to go and get it done I finally did it... When I went I have to say that for me the pain was one of the highest levels of pain I have ever expierencied, but just for that moment, and for the first few weeks of getting a hard-on would be uncomfortable.
It all started at 3am on Mother’s Day 2009. 4 Months of planning and courage building had come to a pinnacle when I walked into Cloud 9 in Birmingham, AL. I wanted to get a Reverse Prince Albert. After assuring the piercer that I had prepared myself for the procedure, we walked to the back. I was to be fitted with a 10ga CBR (captive bead ring) that was roughly 1inch in diameter. After being marked, I laid on the table. The receiving tube in my urethra was unpleasant but bearable. Then came the moment when the needle tears a hole.
I removed my first Apadravya about 15 years ago after having it for more than 5 years. I was doing a lot of figure modeling and had to keep removing it for posing and it just became too much of a hassle. Decided I wanted it back and I'm glad I did it again.
As the needle went through the bottom of the shaft, there was a slight pinch, but as the big push through the head started there wasn't much pain, just a lot of pressure.
As the needle popped out the top again there was some pinching, but not too bad.
I always wanted to have my junk pierced but either was in a relationship with someone that didn't want me to or didn't want the down time. I've been divorced several years and figured what the hell. I contacted a local guy and decided on an Amphallang and a apadravya 8ga w/ a bigger ball on the top of the apadravya. He was pretty excited as he has done several but not both in the same sitting. The jewelry coming in took forever, I later found out the owner was hemming and hawwing about the cost of the metal and the piercer started his own deal.
I had a PA dating back to 2006. Initially at 10g and stretched to 4g (and a month ago even to 2g but that didn't really feel good, often a little bit sore). Recently a longterm relationship ended and since my girlfriend wasn't too happy about the PA I often took it out, found it to be a hassle with rings & pliers but also wasn't 100% happy with the curved barbells I had in more recently.
So, after thinking about it a long time and reading experiences here, I finally decided to have the PA turned into an Apadravya. I always found this to be the most awesome piercing a guy could have ...
