Five Crucial Steps You Should Follow

Piercings are fun. Especially when you have them in not-so-obvious places, completely hidden away from the public. Anything below the neckline can stir up some tingling sensation when one’s thought crosses the line of naughty or nice. But piercings below the neckline heal very different than facial- or oral piercings. Nipple and navel piercings take the longest to heal, which is up to 12 months.

However, piercings below the belt don't take that long to heal. Most female genital piercings take about four to eight weeks, this includes the vertical clitoral hood piercing, the horizontal clitoral hood piercing, inner labia, clitoris, Princess Diana, and the Christina. The longest to heal in the intimate area, are the triangle piercing, outer labia and the fourchette piercing, which can take two to four months.

The healing process for male genital piercings is similar, yet some take a little longer. The healing process for the dolphin piercing, the Prince Albert, and the reverse P.A. take between four to eight weeks. The ampallang piercing, apadravya, dydoe, guiche, scrotal and pubic piercing take between two and six months to fully heal. It all depends on your body and how well you take care of your piercing.

Here is a guide on "How to take care of your genital piercing" to make sure it heals properly.
