never had a problem

OK so the nurses didn't look at you strangely afterwards then
08/10/2007 at 15:56

erm, one looked a bit surprised and asked if it hurt

but tbh it wouldn't bother me if they *did* look at me strangly - like with they chiro, it would just amuse me

am not wearing it at the mo, like anything else you can wear it or not as you please

LOL I have a bartholins cyst which if it flares and I need to get it looked WILL mean I get a couple of comments of the GP I usually see - he is just like that

Iws told by my piercer that you can leave them out too long - she had to have hers done again

Yeah, I heard that too.

I've had mine out for a few months at a time on several occasions, not had any probs so far.

I worry about it on the bike but after a year I should be fine to take it out for cycling really

I used to take mine out for cycling, yeah.

One wee tip. If you ever have to go for an x-ray, take it out -

If you ever have an MRI definetely take it out....  LOL

for psychological reasons (a naughty little secret only I and my partner know about). 

i thought that when i got my nipple done

ha ha ha ha ha

Thanks for the comments Sam and Maddy - I'm surprised you need to take it out for cycling?

I went cycling last weekend and thought about this specifically.  It doesn't seem like it will be a problem because that's not where I sit.   Is there anything else you have to take it out for?  I don't want to have to take it out at all.

Yasmin - I haven't yet had to take it out for cycling or anything else.  I just think I will when I do longer stuff but thats because I am worried about stretching the hole since the hood is only skin, I use a range of positionsover longer distances just to relieve the pressure - it will probably happen slightly over time anyway but I don't want to accelerate it

Ah just realised who may be lurking on this one  - the range of positions in THIS instance relates to how I am sitting on my cycle saddle

maddy how very wise of you

Definitely take it out if ever you go get waxed....
10/10/2007 at 08:03
Really Jane?  I get waxed every 2 months or so. It might be in the way a little but I thought I might be able to work around it.  Maybe it's better to take it out  be on the safe side.

Oh definitely remove it for a wax - you risk a very nasty tear otherwise. 

I don't see a need to remove it for any other reason or purpose.  The only discomfort you may have cycling or wearing very tight jeans is if you are wearing a very bulky piece of jewellry like a barbel...if its just a bog standard 18 guage ring with baubel join you will be fine

That's great Jane, thanks for the tip! I will take it out for waxing - not worth the risk!
