I received a message from a woman who suspected her VCH piercing wasn't properly placed as she was not experiencing any enhancements from it.
Could you have a look at the photos of my VCH piercing? I had it done a few months ago and while it hasn't caused me any bother, it hasn't had quite the "wow" factor I was expecting! If you think it is situated correctly could you recommend jewellery for it?
I live in Ireland so I travelling to one of your recommended piercers wasn't an option!
I'd really appreciate your opinion

I received a message from a woman I'd pierced previously. She went to a different piercer to get her nipples done and ended up with initial jewelry that was inappropriate (too small):
Good morning Elayne,
I wish to thank you for your help and insight in regards to my recent nipple piercings that I did for my husband's birthday in Key West, Florida. It will be one month tomorrow since the piercing was done. They seem to be healing ok, no pain, but I am getting a thick, yellow-greenish discharge on an almost daily basis from each nipple. Is this NORMAL? I clean the daily crustys off with a saline soaked Q-tip, and I am trying to get at least two saline soaks in each day (however, somedays I only get one in).
I am concerned about having the ring in and having the piercing not straight (rounded on the ends) and am wondering if I can exchange the jewelry and put in a straight bar for the rest of the healing period?
Also, you had mentioned to my husband that if we wanted to "play" with them, that it would have been better to have gone to a 14 gauge. If I do this, is the healing process the same, and will it have any effect on the looks due to being re-pierced? Hopefully, if I do this I will only have you do it...I will check your schedule and see where you are going to be.
Thank you again for all your help and expert advise.

I received a message and photos from a woman who had concerns (rightly so!) about her new "triangle" piercing done by "the piercer who owns Big Brain here in Omaha, Nebraska":
Hi, I recieved a triangle piercing recently. Although it is very pleasing I have been doing alot of reading on your site and you had mentioned that the hood should not be pinned down and that the piercing should be pretty straight well mine is not quite like that. I got it done by a reputable pierrcer who owns Big Brain here in Omaha, Nebraska. I just wanted your opinion on whether you think migration is possible or if I would have some long term problems down the line.

I received a message from a woman who experienced a problem with a Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercing that was almost a year old:
I've recently noticed a smallish bump under the top ball of the bar in my VCH piercing. It isn't painful to the touch, I really can't feel it at all, and nothing's coming out of it, but it's visibly noticeable . I've had the piercing for almost a year now and it healed easily without any issues at first, this is really recent. I have been taking the jewelry out for short periods of time while getting laser hair removal treatments, could is have prompted my body to start producing scar tissue? I got a taper to make the jewelry removal / reinsertion process easier thinking it might be a cause or contributing factor to the issue, but I'm not sure if I should seek out a doctor's opinion (or a piercer's?) I'm afraid a doctor will just be piercing-negative and tell me to take it out. Any advice is appreciated!

I received a message from a woma who wanted to put a "belly button ring" in her vertical clitoral hood (VCH) piercing.
I just have a quick question. I got my VCH done back in the beginning of June. I was just wondering if it was safe to put a standard belly button ring in the VCH piercing, or does it require a completely different kind of ring? I was also wondering if it would be too soon to change it? It's been a very painless process and I was able to be sexually active a week after getting it pierced with no complications. Thanks for you time.
