My PA is my first piercing and I've had it for 5 weeks. The actual piercing site is not irritated at all, but the urethral opening at the tip is really uncomfortable. When I walk around the ring annoys the urethra (particularly the lower part of the opening). The skin at that lower end of the urethral slit looks awfully thin so maybe that is why it's irritated?
I did a fairly good amount of research on this site and read many of the experiences you all provided before getting my first ever piercing, no tattoos either, the PA. Just wanted to get some tips from any seasoned veterans that could help me along the way of my healing.
I got the piercing yesterday (Aug. 26) and it was pierced at 10g with a bent barbell inserted. It's a very long bar he said was for swelling and initial healing. I bled a TON yesterday and throughout the night but surprisingly have not had any pain at all with the piercing.
I've had my 2g cbr in for 8 weeks or so and it was quite loose. Curiosity got the better of me and i ordered a 1g or 7mm cbr ring. I prefer these initially cos the ends are rounded and they insert easily. Well i gave it a go with a little lube and it went straight in. I can go up a size every 8 weeks so think i'm going to have to change to titanium or acrylic. Went with a 19mm this time and its a nicer less dangly size that hopefully wont scare the wife too much. I MUST stop at 0g tho. May get a hafada next.
Hey guys. It's been quite a while since I've been on here but I'm back to ask a question regarding stretching. I'm currently as a 4g PA which I stretched to myself at least 6 months ago. It's probably been longer though. Anyway, I've never had an issue with stretching up until now. I can only get the taper in about half way before it becomes quite painful. I try the whole warm bath thing but I can't get anywhere close to where I need to be for new jewelry. I do use a water based lubricant as well.
It's coming up to the second anniversary of my PA soon, so it seemed like a good time to write a little about my journey.
I don't remember the specific trigger for wanting a PA. I think I read something somewhere that mentioned it, and, realising that I didn't actually know how a PA "worked", I Googled it. Initially, I was shocked, especially by the first few photos I found, and in all honesty, not really interested in getting one myself. But then as I kept looking, I found many more attractive examples, and began to be intrigued.
Well, after years (literally!) Of thinking about it, I finally got a PA done. Had a few drinks (probably not advised, but it was the only way I would go through with it) and popped into a shop when I was on holiday in France. He did it with a 14g which was quite uncomfortable as it cut into me. Had a 10g put when I got home and today slipped in a 8g no problem. Got a 6g BCR ready to go in in a couple of weeks.
I've been at 4G for several months. Wearing a CBR lately. Everytime I upgrade in size I think, ok, this is big enough. But the longer I wear it I start thinking, well this really isn't that big... then begin fantasizing about my next upgrade. Just look at my picture. That 4G jewelry really doesn't look large at all. Is this some kind of phenomenon? I guess I will aim for 2G after all.
