Bleeding and Bruised Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing

I received a message from a woman who got a VCH piercing and she wanted me to evaluate it for her:

After checking out your website and researching this piercing, I went ahead and decided to go get one for myself!

I have seen other reviewers say they have sent pictures of their to evaluate if it has been done correctly, and since you are not in my area piercing, I went to another piercing place to have it done.  However. I  still want your professional opinion on whether it was done correctly.  Being such a delicate area, I want to know mine is done right!Bruised VCH Piercing

I know my piercer did use the NRT [needle receiving tube].  I do have concerns because he went through with the needle, then said the skin on my hood moved (which I know must happen at times) and had to pierce me again.  (You can see in the pictures, above the top ball where I think the first needle went through before he had to move it down.)  So this is where I lost a little confidence.  Afterward, I bled profusely for about 4-5 hours almost as if i had my monthly cycle which also worried me.  So I just want your opinions on this, if it's normal, and if the piercing looks done correctly to you!

The bleeding has stopped and I am in no pain, I have been cleaning it as instructed, but I don't feel any "heightened" sexual sensations at this point either.  Maybe that will come after healing?  I apologize for the bruising and some of the dried blood, as this piercing was done less than 24 hours ago and still has to heal.

I do hope they are close and clear enough and that the lighting is well enough for you to make a proper evaluation.  Thank you so much for taking the time to look.  You're awesome!

Best regards, A.

A Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing Questions (with photos)

Below is some correspondence I had with a woman who got a VCH piercing and she had some concerns about it:

Bruised VCH PiercingHello Elayne, I got my VCH piercing a few days ago. Looking at it today I noticed it's pretty bruised. Is this normal? It doesn't hurt other than if I touch it it's a bit tender.

I'll attach a couple pictures so you can see the piercing and the bruising and tell me how it looks to you.
Thank you.

My reply:

Any piercing (or break in the skin) can bleed, bruise, and/or swell. So that's not really of concern. From what I can see, it looks normal, but if you want to have me fully evaluate the placement, I need to see an image of the underside. See this page for explanation of the photos I need to see.

Is this the care you're following?

Surface VCH du Jour (With Photo)

Here it is, the surface VCH (Vertical Clitoral Hood) piercing of the day. This is not where the piercing should be placed! In fact, it is off by the piercing equivalent of MILES.

It was done by Tasha at Way of Ink, in Springfield VA. Naturally the piercee was quite upset. My advice was to ask for her money back and abandon the piercing, and to seek a more competent professional if she wants a properly placed piercing.

The photo below shows the "inverted-V" of the hood. The bottom ball should be coming out from under this location so the jewelry rests underneath the hood against the clitoris.

A Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing with "Bubble" (with photos)

VCH (Clitoral Hood) piercing with "bubble"I got a message from a woman who was having some problems with her VCH piercing (which I did not perform for her--though this particular healing problem can crop up even when everything is done properly).

Hi Elayne, I'm having issues with my VCH piercing. It began after being agitated after sex (it seemed to be healing fine at the time). I noticed it stung sometimes when I sat down, sometimes when I walked. Upon closer examination, I noticed something that looks like an extra bit of skin under the top ball. I paid extra attention to it during cleaning, and noticed there was a bit of (off-white) discharge. I started doing soaks, the discharge went away, it stopped stinging, but the extra skin didn't go away. I did that for about 1.5 weeks.

This morning, I woke up and the discharge came back and it slightly stings again. I just did a soak... But I'm not sure what else to do.

 

 

In reading your book, I think it may be a keloid, but I'm not sure. Maybe an abscess (but I don't feel any hard localized mass). If it is a keloid, should it just be taken out? How can I be sure there's no infection still inside the piercing?

Yet ANOTHER Accidental Clitoris Piercing (Botched VCH) Hood Piercing

Argh! I received yet another message from a woman who went in requesting a vertical clitoral hood (VCH) piercing and ended up getting her hood pierced to her clitoral glans pierced due to visiting an unqualified, untrained piercer. She wrote:

Yet ANOTHER Accidental Clitoris Piercing (VCH requested)

I recently got a VCH piercing but I think its not placed right. As you can see the piercing does not come through the hood, the lower ball is too far down. When i got the piercing it was very painful and a lot of blood came out.

My reply:
I'm sure it was very painful, because that is NOT a hood piercing: YOU HAVE HAD YOUR CLITORIS PIERCED!

Your hood is actually pierced to your clitoris. You're going to need to take that out but you should talk to the owner of the business and get your money back.

Where did you get this done?


She wrote again:

I had thought it was pierced through that from the pain i went through.

I will try and remove it myself as i don't want to go back to the place that did it. 
I got it done in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland.

I was going to go to a piercing shop in Belfast tomorrow to see if they would remove it for me, as I don't want to make it worse.
