Day 5 - Any thoughts on swelling? I'm on day 5 and now experiencing swelling around the bottom of my dick where the piercing is? I'm soaking it a couple times a day and everything seems like it is healing well.
See the image attached on what I'm asking about? Is it normal or should I be concerned?
Other than that, all is AWESOME.
So i am 11 days in. I will say that its been an interesting 11 days. I did a lot of research prior to committing to my PA. I have no regrets and am happy that i made this choice. I made appointment with Elayne Angel to do my piercing while she was touring through Philadelphia. I paid more than double what the shop was charging to have her do it but after research and learning i was, and still am, happy to have paid more to insure a great outcome.
It's been two weeks any pinching or being sore all gone morning erections feel great now sleeping comfratble naked if people are thinking about it and don't think they could handle it the pain lvl wise really not much my nipples hurt the most before and after my ears was second in pain lvl as care as being pierced and gauged but the pa was nothing and was over before I new it warning though once you get one it's like eating a pringle chip ya can't stop at one lol
Day 4. Went out last night and had to wear clothes for the first time (I've had a few days off for healing). Uncomfortable but bearable. Choose to wear a jock that wasn't very tight, but couldn't wait to strip when I got home.
No blood since yesterday morning, and soaking it about three times a day between saline soaks and showers. (Can you take a bath while the first weeks of healing or is a tub bad?)
Slept naked last night too for the first time in three nights. Felt great, except for turning over with an erection.
Speaking of erections, I think I need a bigger ring.
Onto day 3 of the PA. Yesterday was great, had almost no bleeding or irritation. Slept in briefs again last night in case of bleeding, but did not experience any until my first urination this morning. Blood was minimal and stopped immediately. Soaked in a saline bath for a few minutes and it feels good.
Does anyone have any recommendation on underwear? Usually wear briefs, but are they too restrictive while healing?
I did it, finally went and got my PA that I've been thinking about for years. Me recommendation, if you've been wanting a PA and have been timid about doing it - don't be. Great experience, at Significant Piercing in Bakersfield, CA. Sean does a great job, very professional.
I've had my nipples pierced a couple of times through the years, and the pain level of getting them done was greater in comparison to getting a PA. A small pinch it it was done. Just like that.
(My first entry broke the site, my bad)
I wanted to share the past 7 months with everyone (4-1 to 11-1), because I feel it would be helpful to those that are on the fence about PA’s. Like many, the idea has been in my head for a long while, and it wasn’t until I started dating a girl that was pierced in all the right places, got me to thinking about it once more. That go me on the research path of what to expect and how long before winky can play again?!
I was piercing 6 monthes ago at 8g and just got this 6g piece. It slipped in real easy and I am very excited! Though im not too worried, i was looking for some info. I was wondering from expierienced PA owners or Piercers if I have sufficient skin that is suitable for stretching in the future. Would you say I have correct or good placement? What are signs of blow out or migration besides the obvious? Sorry, This is my first piercing! Thanks in advance.
Thanks to everyone here for posting their stories - really helped get me over the hump, and can't beat the practical advice.
8 weeks ago I took the plunge, after thinking about it oh-so-long. Saw Myke at Blue Lotus in Madison. Talked through the process, kept everything very relaxed. Decided to go with an 8 gauge curved barbell. Receiving tube didn't hurt (I've been stretched by bigger ) Piercing itself was a strong pinch, but was over quickly. Took about 5 days to quit bleeding completely, but pain free, and the rest of the heeling process went smoothly (sea salt soaks, etc.).
Like everyone on here, I did a lot of research and soul searching before I took the plunge and got my PA last April, actually on April fool’s day, because why not?! I was pierced with a 10g 5/8” CBR, the first few months were the toughest for me because being celibate for that long made life rather unbearable. Since that time, I stepped to an 8g CBR and finally a 6g circular barbell Nov. 1st… the most important advice I can give is ‘patience’. I waited 4 months for the 8g to stretch on its own allowing for the 6g to be less painful.
