stretching up piercings
June 24th, 2011
This is a continuation of my discussion from my previous blog post about stretching a Prince Albert piercing:
How or what does migration look/feel like? The stretch was done by the piercer who did the PA. It felt like a lot of pressure for a very brief second when it was stretched last week. I did not see the blood until I peed and like I said it was very little. They used a horseshoe about a 1" I am guessing. I normally wear underwear. I had some crusting the first couple of days but that is all over with. I did soak it the first couple of days after the stretch. It easily moves in the shower. I wanted a barbell for the stretch but they were out. The original piercing was done Nov 1st last year.
Thank you for your help.

I received this message from a reader:
Hello Elayne, Picked up a copy of your book here in Canada last night. Holy Cow!! I didn't anticipate this much info--thank you. I have never been pierced before (hey, I'm a forty something) and am interested in a PA. You discussed retiring this piercing stating that there is the possibility it may not close up depending on the time you've had it and how large of jewelery has been used. You also indicated discussing with a surgeon/urologist about having it sutured up, and the pros and cons of doing this. Have you every been informed of what these pro's and con's could be?? I would like to know in advance of doing anything. Thanks, any comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much for the positive feedback; I really appreciate it. Cons of going to a surgeon to close a PA would be expense, potential risk and discomfort (or pain) from surgery, and that you'll still end up with some form of scar. Also, it could be difficult to locate a physician who is open minded and non-judgmental. Pros would be that you are able to be rid of an undesired hole....
I hope that helps to clarify this for you.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

I received this message today:
Can you tell me the grade of steel I want to purchase for changing my PA? Can you also recommend a site where I can get good quality jewlery?
Also, I just went from a 4 to a 2. It is unusual for there to be a little bleeding. It was very little for a very short period of time.
