shallow VCH piercing
September 4th, 2010
Here's a message I received from a woman who had gotten a VCH piercing and she had concerns about whether it was properly placed:
You seem to know exactly what you're talking about and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind answering a question for me. I got a VCH about a week ago, and there's still some stinging pain although no redness or anything to suggest infection... but what I'm wondering is if there's any chance of the piercing growing out? Like, not the ends of the barbell sliding through the hole, but the body actually growing the piercing out.
I'm nervous because I've never had a piercing down there and don't really know what I should look for. Obviously I should be able to tell if that's happening and the piece of the hood looks smaller to me than the first day or two, but I don't know if that's just swelling. Any answer or what I should watch for would be extremely helpful right now. Obviously I would contact the person that did the piercing but if it was done incorrectly I don't think I'd trust what she told me anyway. Thanks in advance. A.
I'm afraid I'm limited in what I can tell you from a verbal description. But if you can send me a few clear, close up photos I can tell whether your piercing was placed properly, whether the jewelry is an appropriate size and fit, and if you appear to be healing normally or not.
If everything was done properly, and you were anatomically suited, then there is very little chance of rejection.
Feel free to send some pictures.
