Concerning PA stretching, especially for larger gauge (00 and beyond), – a painful pleasure as it simply is-, the utmost sensitive skin in the PA piercing will likely be irritated and possibly somewhat inflamed upon successful
insertion of the new, heavy jewelry.
The day after the stretching could become uncomfortable with sometimes extremely slow progress for less pain in days to come when jewelry moves or is bumped.
With heavy PA jewelry, wearing a jock strap with the jewelry nested down at the balls (rather than up) also helps manage less movement.
It is important to shower/bath jewelry morning and evening, for some type of tiny crust could develop and cause serious pain upon movement.
I also elected to use anti-inflammatory Ibuprofen 200mg 2x a day, and may be another one later in the night.
This does help amazingly but should not be taken with major alcohol consume; a small amount is ok and kidneys won’t “give up”.
My PA is actually an Apadravya (vertical through gland) and lends itself to heavy jewelry. A regular PA may not take the weight over time and rip open as it may migrate.
The Apadravya piercing therefore would be my recommendation in order to achieve higher, extreme goals.
