Due to the extreme sensitivity of the genitals, it is advised you see a piercer who has a lot of experience piercing genitals. If you decide a genital body piercing is right for you, be aware of the following.
- Piercing the clitoris horizontally may result in a loss of all feeling. A vertical piercing through the hood is not as risky.
- You may not be able to have sexual relations until your genital piercing completely heals.
- Piercings in the genital area are prone to infection. Be sure to follow all cleaning instructions given to you by your piercer.
