Can I wear earrings while pregnant?
During pregnancy, earrings and nose rings can stay, and you don’t necessarily have to ditch piercings in your nipples or belly button either. “Some women find that they become uncomfortable as their skin stretches,” says Iffath A.
Can pregnancy cause piercings to reject?
The two main types of popular surface piercings involve bars and microdermals. Surface piercings may have a higher rate of rejection and/or infection than ear piercing or other body piercings. A pregnant woman’s immune system is suppressed during pregnancy, which leaves surface piercing on the borderline of unsafe.
As your baby bump grows and your skin becomes taut, the piercing might pull on your skin. This can lead to soreness, redness, and small tears around your navel.
What will happen if you get a piercing while pregnant?
Piercing during pregnancy isn’t recommended because even if the piercing is performed safely, there’s always a chance that an infection at the piercing site could occur and spread to your bloodstream, which poses a risk to your baby since their immune system is too weak to fight it.
Why do my piercings hurt during pregnancy?
As parts of a woman’s body alter during expectancy and the skin becomes far more sensitive, the existing piercing can be affected by becoming tender, sore, irritated, weepy, or infected.
What piercings reject the most?
Some people are much more prone to rejection than others. The most common body piercings that reject are navel piercings and eyebrow piercings. The surface piercings most likely to reject are those that reside more closely to the skin’s surface such as the sternum or nape (back of the neck) and Madison piercings.
Will my belly button go back to normal after pregnancy? Yes, your belly button will get right back to its regular position a few months after delivery, although it may look a little stretched out or “lived in.” It’s a badge of honor to wear proudly!
Contrary to popular myth, however, whether or not a belly button piercing will work for you has nothing to do with weight. “What it comes down to is the anatomy in the area you are piercing, much more than someone’s overall body type,” she says.
