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.
I'm on day 11. For the most part, unless it gets bumped, I don't have pain from the piercing site. But, from time to time, I have a fair amount of tenderness from my urethra.
At what point do most people have their urethra get used to the jewelry?
I do also obviously have pain when I masturbate. Actually, I have pain at the piercing site when fully erect. I suspect this has something to do with the fact that the piercing is snug. I was pierced with a 12g needle, and the jewelry inserted is 10g. I'm not worried about this. The piercing site gets traumatized less every day.
Here I am on the tram on my way home after getting a 10 gauge prince albert 20 minutes ago. I've spent years saying I'd like a prince albert but never went through with it. About a month ago I went and got my other nipple pierced. I really liked the piercer Alan Dundrum Piercing and was very comfortable with him. When I got home I started to thing about a prince albert again. I decided I'd have no problem dropping my pants for Alan to pierce my . I asked the wife could I, she wasn't sure. It took three weeks but she finally came around to the idea.
I've always wanted a PA but my piercer recommended a frenum 6 months ago. My wife has enjoyed that but I wanted the combo. I got my PA 12 days ago and it's currently a 12 guage. I'd like to stretch my PA to an 8ga ASAP and then stretch it to 4ga. The frenum was my first and bled quite a bit. The PA didn't bleed but it's still tender.
