Is bleeding after normal?
Yes. PA’s are known for bleeding for up to a week after being pierced. This is very common and we actually suggest bandaging your piercing with non-woven gauze for a few days to deal with that. We review how we suggest bandaging with you when you get the piercing, and are always here to offer assistance while you are healing. Don’t let the blood startle or scare you, it is normal.
When can I start stretching my PA?
We suggest 2-3 months past it being fully healed. The piercing takes 6-8 weeks to fully heal, so many people don’t have their first stretch for 4-6 months.
I’m interested in getting a wand for my PA. Do you sell those?
We do not keep these in stock but we can work with a manufacturer for you to get you a custom fitted piece, we can also help you with your measurements if you choose to order one yourself online.
I’m uncut- can I still get this piercing?
Yes! We do PA piercings on clients with intact foreskins regularly. There are some extra considerations to ensure the jewelry doesn’t prevent the foreskin from resting in it’s natural position, and it may take some experimenting to find the jewelry that is most comfortable for you while healing, but we are happy to help you through the entire process.
It stings when I urinate, is that normal?
Yes, urination for the first week or two can feel like a stinging or burning sensation. There are a few things you can do to make this more comfortable. First, stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water. This will keep your urine from being too acidic and stinging. The most effective method of reducing this discomfort is to urinate with the penis submerged in water. Many clients use a shallow bowl or ziplock container filled with warm water to urinate in. Being submerged in water prevents the urine from getting into the piercing and staying there where it can sting.
