Healing Women’s Genital Piercings

No matter what genital piercing you are thinking about getting, the basic aftercare will be the same. Although, you will find that the healing times may vary.

For the most part, common sense will properly heal your piercing. Do not tough the piercing with dirty hands. Avoid baths for the first week or two, taking showers instead. While in the shower, clean the piercing, allowing the water to flow over the new piercing. You do not have to use soap, but if you feel the need, you can use a mild anti-bacterial product that does not contain any colorant or scents. Pat the piercing dry. Wear lose clothing. Do not use any ointment, cream, or astringent on the new piercing.

When you get a genital piercing, you should also avoid bodily fluids for the first few weeks, while the initial healing takes place.

Women’s genital piercing healing times will vary based on the piercing. Throughout the entire healing process, be gentle to the piercing and keep it clean in order to avoid irritation and infection.
