General Notes & Precautions
- Genital Piercing is performed in an Operating Room using Intravenous Sedation (optional) with Local Anesthesia.
- Genital Piercing is one of the most meticulous and delicate piercings performed. It requires extreme precision and expertise to achieve the optimal results a woman desires.
- Many physicians have little to no experience with this type of cosmetic piercing. It is important you do your research and make wise decisions as you are dealing with the most delicate part of the female body.
- Potential patients should be aware of the educational background, training, and practical experience the person who is doing their piercing has.
What to expect after the piercing procedure?
- A few days after the piercing, some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness or bruising is expected. Itching and whitish/yellowish (not pus) secretion may be experienced. Some crust on the jewelry and tissue tightening may occur during the healing process.
- Do not force to move or rotate the jewelry in the piercing. The outside tissues may heal faster than the inside. If there are signs of infection; do not hesitate to contact us in our Center.
Here are some signs of infection:
- Bad smell
- A rash outside or around the piercing site
Post Procedure Care:
- Do not rotate the jewelry through the piercing. Wash your hands thoroughly before touching the pierced area. Wear clean, comfortable, breathable clothing to protect the piercing while sleeping.
- Wash the area with sterile solution with no additives, preferably mild anti-microbial liquid soap. Soap the area for not more than twice a day and do not leave the soap in the area for more than thirty seconds. Rinse thoroughly to completely remove soap from the area. Gently pat dry the area with clean, soft, disposable paper tissue.
- The pierced area should be kept clean every single day to prevent smelly secretions and infection. Avoid submerging in lakes, pools and hot tubs.
- Sexual activity can be resumed as soon as you feel ready. Oral contact, tough play and contact with body fluid of others should be avoided during healing. All sexual contacts should be gentle during the healing period. Rinsing the area with saline clean water is advised after sexual intercourse.
