Please make note that everyone heals at a different rate, the healing time below refers to a standard healing time for those specific piercings.
The frequency with which you should change your piercing jewelry depends on several factors, including the type of piercing you have, the material of your jewelry, and how well you care for your piercing. Here are some general guidelines:
Healing period: You should wait until your piercing is fully healed before changing your jewelry. The healing time varies depending on the piercing, but it usually takes between 6 to 12 weeks. Changing your jewelry too soon can irritate the piercing and prolong the healing process.
Material: The material of your jewelry can affect how often you should change it. For example, if you have a metal allergy or sensitivity, you may need to change your jewelry more frequently. You may also need to change your jewelry if it becomes tarnished or discolored.
Activity level: If you are very active or participate in sports, you may need to change your jewelry more frequently to avoid damage or injury to your piercing. Additionally, if you work in an environment with a lot of dirt, dust, or chemicals, you may need to change your jewelry more often to avoid infection.
Signs of irritation: If you notice any signs of irritation, such as redness, swelling, or discharge, you should consider changing your jewelry. This may indicate an allergic reaction or infection.
Personal preference: Some people like to change their jewelry frequently to switch up their style, while others prefer to keep the same jewelry in for longer periods.
In general, it’s recommended to change your piercing jewelry every 3-6 months if your piercing is fully healed and you’re not experiencing any issues. However, if you notice any signs of irritation or discomfort, you should consider changing your jewelry sooner.
