Pregnancy & Piercing

Posted on Jan 23, 2013

There are several options available to keep your navel piercing once you become pregnant. You can safely keep your original ring in the piercing until about the sixth month of the pregnancy. At this stage the expansion of the skin means that you will have to either take the ring out, replace it with a larger one, or a piece of sterile surgical cordage. Cordage will keep the piercing open till after the pregnancy when you may replace the jewelry. If you have removed the jewelry and the hole has closed up it can be re-opened.
