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.
