Today, many girls do their navel piercings. It looks quite stylish and beautiful, but there are situations when this puncture causes concern. For example, pregnancy. There are questions: what to do? Shoot or not?
What happens to the piercing?
Find out beforehand what will happen to the piercing is impossible. For some during the entire pregnancy, piercing does not create problems, while remaining the same. And many already in the second trimester, the puncture begins to change its shape, stretches and sticks out strongly. Then the woman experiences discomfort, the earring interferes, irritates the skin and catches clothing.
There are cases when pregnant women do not remove the decoration and a gap occurs. To avoid this, doctors recommend more closely monitor the puncture.
By the way, the puncture is stretched along with the skin on the growing belly, but after giving birth in most women it takes on its original appearance. And very rarely remains a scar.
How to be?
Many already in the early stages remove the earring, my friend took it off only in the seventh month of pregnancy. Before this piercing did not cause her inconvenience. By the way, she almost immediately replaced a simple earring with a Teflon one, as advised by the doctor.
Jewelry made from this material is more flexible, they adapt to changes in the skin, and are hypoallergenic. You can also insert a simple silk thread.
A friend was afraid that if she removed the earring right away, the piercing would quickly grow, and then she would have to re-pierce. Sometimes the hole is delayed for several months, and it happens that it takes more than a year before the puncture is completely overgrown, all individually.
During pregnancy, special attention is paid to skin care of the abdomen. We all try to use cream for stretch marks. Piercing does not interfere with the use of these creams.
A friend, after removing the earring, not only used stretch mark cream, but also processed a puncture with an alcohol solution so that there was no infection. After giving birth, she again wore an earring.
If you already have a piercing, then during pregnancy you will decide whether to take it off or not. But if you are planning a pregnancy in the near future, then piercing is not recommended, pregnancy is a contraindication for piercing. Although it seems to me, no one will dare to make a puncture on a growing tummy.
