Anatomy Consultation for Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) and Triangle Piercings

 

I performed a consultation for a woman who wanted to know if her anatomy was suitable for Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) and Triangle Piercings.

Hi Elayne.

I have a vertical clit hood piercing and I love it sooo much I want more! I have a good piercer that I really love but he's sooo far away. Thank you sooo much for doing consultations online! I really, really want to get a triangle. Or maybe a horizontal? I hope my pictures are good enough. I'm glad I'll have a better idea of what I can get before I go all the way out to see my piercer.

Thanks!!!

My response:

Hi.

You don't really appear to have any space for an HCH piercing above your VCH, which is where it would normally go, so I don't think you're a candidate for that particular piercing. And, by the way, your VCH appears to be properly placed and the jewelry is a suitable fit.

Concern about Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing: Jewelry Too Short

 

 

I received a message from a woman who was concerned about the jewelry in her new VCH piercing:

Hi, yesterday I went and had my VCH piercing and I am a little concerned that the jewellery is too short. The bottom ball is not visible and is hiding quite deeply inside my hood which in turn is pushing the top of the bar upwards (this is a little uncomfortable). I don't think it's a shallow piercing but I'm just wondering if I can change this myself (I have been pierced with quite a small straight bar). I am able to send you some pics if that will help? Thank you.

 

My response:

Thanks for your message. I can tell you without seeing you that if the jewelry is too tight you MUST get it changed out ASAP! 

Unless you are quite familiar with body jewelry and have access to sterile equipment including an insertion taper, then I would suggest you go to a professional to have it changed. However, based on your problem, I'm not sure if you should trust the piercer who put in improperly sized jewelry?

Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing Jewelry Problem

 

I received a message from a woman who was concerned about the jewelry in her vertical clit hood (VCH) piercing:

Hi I have a vch piercing I've had it for about 3 months I think . When I first got it done I went to a piercer that has done all my other piercings and I asked him what I could get for 20$ he said anything I want so I chose a genital piercing so I didn't do any research or anything. About 5 days later I was taking a shower and couldn't feel the bottom ball I figured it was normal but I was still a little worried so I looked it up n I read horrible stories n i got really scared I thought I was going to have to go to the e.r I called him the next day and told him what happened and he said to come in and he'll fix it so I did after I read the things on your website I figured I'd need a longer bar when I went in he said the ball got pulled through the wound and healed it inside he had to stick a taper through the hole and push the ball through after a half hr to an hr of pain he finally got it out he was goin to leave the original jewelry in but I said I wanted a longer bar so he put it in and it healed after a few weeks after it was healed the longer bar was getting in the way so I wanted the shorter one back in I went back to him and he switched it he told me to keep an eye on it just incase I was nervous that it would happen again and asked him if their was a middle length he could switch it to and he said there is no middle length it's been fine but I'm still nervous that it will happen again so I check it and its been really weird the top ball disappears and I don't know what I should do it doesn't hurt at all so I think it's healed  I don't know the lengths or gauge I don't want to take it out please help me as soon as you can.

Yes, It's A VCH (Vertical Clitoral Hood) Surface Piercing

 

I received a message from yet another woman who got a surface piercing instead of the VCH she paid for:

Hi Elayne.

I got my VCH piercing done yesterday and upon further inspection of the piercing and seeing the pictures on your site, I have come to the realisation that it is indeed a surface piercing.

It is only a day old so I know I shouldn't change it but I want to know, once it has healed, should I change it or just leave it? From where it is placed, I could put the new bar in from the top and it should leave from the bottom.

Many thanks for your help. I live in the UK so I am not able to visit you as I'd like.

S.

My response:

Another misplaced VCH

 

 

 

Hi S.

Yes, it is just a surface piercing that doesn't go under your hood at all. You really should remove it IMMEDIATELY. You are in danger of the jewelry becoming embedded. And it is really NO WHERE CLOSE to where it should be placed.

Even if the jewelry that was inserted fit (or you changed for jewelry that does), such surface piercings tend to have healing issues such as migration, scarring, and/or rejection. Even when properly fitting jewelry is placed this way, getting it out sooner is better than later, as scar tissue is naturally formed if you allow it to remain.

I put an arrow on your photo to show where the jewelry should be coming out from UNDERNEATH your hood. If you need help to remove it, go right away. It will only get harder to take out the longer you leave it in place.

 

Anatomy Consultation - For VCH, HCH, And/Or Triangle (Female Genital) Piercings

I recently performed an anatomy consultation for a couple to help them discover which genital piercing the woman would be best suited for:  

Hello Elayne! My wife, J, would like to get a VCH or other genital piercing. We have read your book and have paid for a consultation. We live in northern Michigan and are planning to go to southern Michigan this weekend for the piercing. Before we go, we'd like to get your input.  Thank you so much for offering this service!!!

Please let us know if you have any thoughts about her suitability for the vch or horizontal piercings. Thank you so much for your help!!!

My reply:

Hi J. 

In these images, it appears that she is a good candidate for a VCH piercing.

One concern I have about her getting an HCH or triangle relates to a visible vessel that could conceivably be in the pathway of a piercing. See the attached image I marked with an arrow to point out the area of my concern.

Surface Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing Migration

 

This message is from a woman who has an improperly placed (surface )Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercing on top of a previously rejected site:

Hello again Elayne, here is an image of my botched VCH piercing AGAIN.

I emailed you a while ago referring the misplacement and worry about migration. I've had this worry since I emailed you the second time around and I've been watching my piercing like a hawk and cleaning it regularly! 

Like last time it's still quite tender and sore and itchy like its still healing. I don't know whether the skin is too thin and it's pushing it out or that's normal or the light or what! I'm so worried because my last one grew out and has left two pieces of scarring and I really don't want this to do it again but I love my piercing and want to keep it :( 

I've got a horrible feeling your going to tell me to take it out so is there any chance you could recommend any good pierces for this as I cannot afford another botched job as I would most definitely want to get this done again! I live in the south west of England.

Please help me!

Surface VCH migrating

My reply:

I'm sorry, but it is likely that you will, in fact, have to remove the jewelry. It is a surface piercing and those often are unsuccessful. If it hasn't been settling in well since you last contacted me, then that is a bad sign for the future… Also the more scar tissue you generate through attempting to heal it, the harder it could be to get a properly placed one in the future--and to successfully heal it. I do suggest you remove it, especially if you have hopes of trying again with a better piercer.

Another Surface Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing - With Gold Colored Jewelry

I received a message from a piercee who had concerns about her new Vertical Clit Hood piercing:

Hi Elayne.

I did my research and went ahead and got what I thought is a VCH piercing. Hardly hurt! Didn't bleed that much either! The lady I saw was lovely, appeared experienced, knowledgeable and professional in terms of procedure, after-care and placement. She used a needle receiving tube.

However I was comparing it to pictures on your blog and I think I am now one of those eight out of ten women with a surface piercing. =( My hood is quite shallow which I guess is why the area pierced (front view) looks quite small... (And my jewelry seems a bit long!) But... when I had a look underneath the exit pt for the piercing is not quite at the bottom of the hood! Can you enlighten? Am i being picky or do i need to take it out and try take two?? 

Because of the length of the jewelry, the bottom ball does rest on my clitoris, but I'm worried about the piercing growing out (migrating). I had this done two days ago so I haven't been able to test it out yet! 

Thank you so much! Please tour Australia at some point! =)

Improperly placed VCH surface piercing with gold tone jewelry.

My reply:

 

You definitely have a VCH surface piercing--it is NOT properly placed. The jewelry does not come out from under your hood where a VCH piercing should be located. And, it is in a small amount of tissue (between the entry and exit holes), and very likely to migrate and reject and scar. Sorry….

My suggestion is that you try to get your money back and abandon the piercing. 

Trouble With Scarring on Vertical Clit Hood (VCH) Piercing

Here's a recent consultation I performed for a woman whose Vertical Clit Hood piercing was developing scar tissue:

Dear Elayne,

I've had a VCH piercing for just over 9 weeks now and seem to be having some problems with it. This is my second attempt at a VCH because the first time I had it done, it was improperly placed too shallow (even though the piercer used a NRT) and it was only a 16g externally threaded curved barbell. I took that one out after two weeks, gave it a month to heal, then drove a little farther to a much more reputable piercing studio. Before settling on this particular studio, I purchased and read your book, educating myself as much as possible so I didn't get another botched job. The second piercing was so much better! I felt really comfortable with the piercer's knowledge and she did everything "by the book". This time, I was pierced with a 12g, 5/8" straight SS barbell internally threaded (anatometal brand). I asked her why she piercers with a straight barbell rather than curved and she said in her experience women tend to enjoy the straight barbell more (herself included). After scrutinizing the piercing from every angle when I got home, I was very happy with the placement and started the healing process.

I healed the piercing by doing sea salt soaks (1/4 tsp non-iodized sea salt to 1 cup of filtered water) twice a day for the first four weeks, then continued once a day until the piercing was no longer tender (about 6 weeks after being pierced). I will admit there was a 4 day period where I didn't do any soaks 2 weeks after getting pierced due to being away from home.
