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 ...
A year and a half ago, I got a PA, which a couple of months ago opened up from my urethra, rendering it unfit for jewelry. Although I thought it wouldn't be too bad without a barbell, I really missed the metal. After putting a lot of thought into it, I decided to go with both an apadravya and a hafada.
I had an apadravya a couple of years ago, pierced at 14ga which I thought was too small but didn't say anything. Eventually the bar came out and I let the hole close up. Recently, the PA wasn't comfortable so decided to try for it again but went to someone else.
I decided to do it on a friday during my lunch break so I'd have the rest of the day to relax and sit at my desk and the weekend to recover. I could've done it after work but that'd mean having to walk, then ride the subway, then the commuter train then walk home.
It's been 3 weeks since I had my PA converted to an Apadravya and I couldn't be happier! I have wanted to do this for quite some time but never took the leap. I finally went in to have it done and was more than a little nervous. I found myself with my pants down lying on the table and my piercer ready to go. I was doing my breathing when she said she was getting ready to go. I had to tell her to stop, I wasn't ready. I thought to myself, don't be stupid, you really want this and have come this far. I told her ok I was ready and started deep breaths. BAM!
One of the biggest heart aches in my life as a pierced person was the abandonment of my dual apadravya piercings in order to get my doctor to treat an infection in one of them with sulpha-based meds. It was a serious infection and I had seen several other doctors who all said the same thing, basically; Lose the jewelry or lose the pierced bit.
Since I like having a glans on the end of my penis, I pulled the jewelry and got the drugs, then I got better. But three of the four holes healed closed, the only one that was still open at all barely accepted a 16 gauge taper on the first try.
