Prince Albert (PA) Piercing Evaluation on Uncircumcised Man

 

I received a message from an uncircumcised man asking for a piercing evaluation for a Prince Albert (PA) piercing:

Hi,

I got a PA done just over a week ago, and I'm a bit concerned about the positioning. I'm can't see any sign of migration (yet?), but I'm not sure there's enough flesh holding it, and while I don't plan to stretch to jumbo sizes I do want to go up to at least an 8g. I'm uncircumcised, which adds the additional complication of positioning it with my foreskin, so I'm not sure if it could have gone further back or if I'm just unsuited to this piercing. If unsuited, would an apadravya (either converting the PA or healing and getting it done new) be an option, or would you recommend a reverse PA?

Thanks.

My response:

Without being able to manipulate your tissue (see your foreskin in it's "resting" position and also pull the foreskin back) it is hard for me to evaluate whether there is a suitable PA placement option for you that is further away from the lower edge of your urethra.

Consultation: 11 Years With An Apadravya (Male Genital) Piercing- Will It Heal?

I performed a consultation for a man who abandoned an Apadravya piercing:

Hey Elayne.

I have had an Apadravya in for 11 years. I believe it was originally pierced as a 10G and then stretched to an 8G.

It is time to take it out. I took it out about 48 hours ago. I almost feel like my penis is now more in danger than it was when I had the barbell in. And am curious to know if the holes will eventually close up or if an 8 Gage is too big of a gap or maybe too much time has passed to allow this to happen. Like a doctor couldn't cauterize the hole to gap it, right?

Maybe too much worrying going on in my head. I just don't want these new un-covererd holes from getting infected and I almost want to pump someone full of baby juice at somepoint. So this tripple pee spray is not the spread I want.

Thank you for any and all information.

Thanks for listening.

My reply:

Hello D.

When abandoned, a piercing that old won't "heal" per se, but it is very likely to shrink. Your piercing has "epithelialized" as cells have grown to line the channel making it a sealed hole within your body. So it isn't an opening wound, but a channel all to itself (a "fistula"). This is assuming, of course, that you weren't experiencing irritation, a flare-up, or other problem, which can indicate that there is open tissue.

Will It Close?

Apadravya Irritation And Healing Solutions

 

I received a message from a man who was concerned about his apadravya piercing:

Hi Elayne,

I love my aprydavya, but I have been having problems with it lately.  I have been doing the sea salt solution (1 teaspoon per cup of distilled water).  It has been irritated over the past two weeks and was not getting better with the nightly salt soaks of 20 minutes.  Also, I think I may have screwed up with making a batch of the solution, storing it in a separate container and poring it into another container to soak as opposed to making a fresh batch every time   Now I make a fresh batch of the solution,  but do you think I should see a doctor about the irritation?  Also, do you think that the jewelry may be too long?  When wearing tighter pants, it really contorts the angle and I think that is were the irritation started.

I have attached photos.

Thanks!

My response:

It doesn't look worthy of a doctor visit to me. It may be from trauma, as you mentioned in your message. You'll need to check your own jewelry fit. When you're fully erect, if there is still extra room then you can and should get a shorter post put in.

Apadravya (Male Genital) Piercing Placement

 

I received a message from a man who was considering nontraditional placement for an apadravya piercing:

Question:

I am interested in having my penis pierced. Basically, I am interested in an Apadravya, but I wanted to know if it is necessary that the top hole be in the head of the penis? I would like to have it emerge through the shaft, just behind the head. Is this possible? Or does it have to be through the head?

Thank you so much for all that you do.

K.

My response:

K,

Some piercers are willing to do that for you, but I suspect they haven't seen a cross section of penis anatomy indicating the central location of the deep dorsal vein and artery. 

Being well aware of these crucial structures, I will not do a shaft placement on an apadravya (nor an ampallang).

Did you need a referral to a piercer in your area or were you considering getting pierced by me? Where are you located?

This is from my book, The Piercing Bible--The Definitive Guide to Safe Body Piercing:

Apadravya Piercing: Placement and Choice of Jewelry

Apadravya (male genital) PiercingThe apadravya is pierced vertically through the penis head. It may rest in the center of the glans on the top or be placed closer to the coronal ridge. Because it passes through the urethra, it usually heals faster than an American ampallang.

The apadravya is unique because this single placement encompasses multiple piercings: it is comprised of a Prince Albert on the lower portion and a reverse Prince Albert on the upper.

Reverse Prince Albert Healing Trouble

I received a message from a man who was concerned about his Reverse Prince Albert piercing, which is experiencing healing problems:

I've had this RPV for about a month to a month and a half. It doesn't look right and I've had some trouble figuring out what's going on with it. First, is the placement an issue? Secondly, there seems to be some kind of hypertrophic scar around it as well as a wound-like thing going on. Could the piercing be migrating and that's what's causing some of the issues? Generally the piercing doesn't hurt. It can hurt a little if it's rubs just right while walking. It also hurts a little if it's squeezed. Sex is also a bit painful. Is there any hopes of salvaging this or should I just be giving up?

Apadravya (Male Genital )Piercing with Hypertrophic Scarring

I received a some photos and quetions from a man who got an apadravya piercing

My name is P. and i am from Germany.
I am very confused right now because of my Apadravya and wanted to know, if you could be so kind to say me, what i can do.

I got it done at the 31 August in 2012.Penis with apadravya piercing and mark for traditional placement

After a few stretchings i am now at 2.4 mm with a length of 25mm.

About 3 weeks after i got the piercing there was some tissue growing in front of my Piercing and i tried to make it go away by sticking a needle in it.

Now the tissue is still there. It is dead, so i have no feeling there and it is very hard.

I wanted to ask another piercer what i could do to make it go away but she said, that the real problem would be, that my Apadravya is way to near the tip of my penis and that i should take it out because it will definately migrate.

I am very desperate now and wanted to ask you if this is true and if it is not, if you know what i can do to make this tissue go away.

Thank you very much in advance

Yours sincerely, P.

Pubic Piercing Problems (with Photos)

I received a message from a gentleman who was having problems with a "pubic piercing"

New "pubic piercing" (lower than I suggest)Hi Angel,
I would like to seek your professional opinion and consultation on my current piercing.
I have got my pubic piercing 2 months ago, but it seems to be rejected in the last few weeks (picture of initial piercing and current status are attached for your reference)
My questions are:
1.       Should I take it out now and abandon the piercing?  Let it healed and re-pierce later.  My concern is will there be any risk to trap any bacteria in the piercing?
2.       Or should I leave it there and hope it can settle with this status?  The worst case will be torn out, right?
Any advice will be highly appreciated.   It really makes me embarrassed as I have not encountered any piercing rejection before for all my healed piercing including PA, nipples and others…
Thanks in advance for your kind advance.
