Female Genital Piercing Aftercare Guide

Female genital piercing aftercare

Genital piercings are known for enhancing sexual pleasure for both women and men. That is if they are done properly that is, by someone who actually knows what they are doing!

Seeing as this area of your body is highly sensitive, you need to know how to care for your naughty little piercing.

If you do not look after your genital piercing, you put yourself at risk of infection which could get real nasty and lead to you losing sexual feeling altogether! That’s why I have written this female genital piercing aftercare guide. This article is aimed at women. Don’t worry guys, I will write one for you too.

Cleansing Your Piercing

Needless to say, the most important step for healing your piercing properly is keeping it well cleansed.

The best way of cleansing your genital piercing is in the shower. You should let the water run over your piercing and jewelry to soften any crust or discharge. You can then remove any crust or discharge that has formed using a cotton pad. Try and avoid using a cotton ball, a the fibres can get caught in the jewelry.

The next step can be done whilst you are still in the shower or after you get out. Do whatever is easiest for you.

  1. Make your saline solution by mixing a quarter of a teaspoon of sea salt into a cup of luke warm distilled water. Use spring water or even mineral water if you cannot get distilled water.
  2. Soak a cotton pad in the saline solution and gently apply it to the piercing and jewelry.
  3. Cleanse again using clean running water.
  4. Pat the area dry using paper towels or any other disposable type of cloth. Do not use a washcloth or bathroom towels as they harbour bacteria.

You should do this twice daily for the entire healing period of your piercing. This can vary between different piercings, ask your piercer if you are not sure how long your piercing should take to heal.

More Genital Piercing Aftercare Tips

To help the healing process go much smoother, on top of cleansing twice a day, you should follow these tips:

  • Always wash your hands before touching your piercing. Use anti-bacterial soap to ensure that you kill off most of the bacteria present.
  • Wear clean underwear and use clean bed sheets.
  • Take showers instead of baths for the first two weeks. When you sit in the bath you are exposing your piercing to dirt and harsh soap.
  • Do not let any bodily fluid make contact with your piercing. This includes saliva and semen. If you make sexual contact, even with a longterm partner, use a condom!
  • Do not use any harsh chemicals such as alcohol or hydrogen peroxide on your piercing. You should also avoid ointments, astringents and creams.

Is Your Piercing Infected?

Whenever you get a piercing, you should always monitor it closely during the healing period.

It is normal to experience some pain, swelling and redness but if you notice these symptoms worsening or persisting for more than a week, you may have an infection.

Watch out for the following symptoms:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Severe swelling, pain or redness
  • Foul smelling or unusual coloured discharge

What to do

If you notice any one of these symptoms, you should make an appointment with your doctor or your piercer as soon as possible.

In the meantime, take extra good care when cleansing your piercing. Try using a mild anti-bacterial soap, which should be alcohol free.

To Summarize

The genitals are a very sensitive part of the body, so if you happen to get a piercing there, you need to take very good care of it.

As long as you go to a reputable piercer and follow a good aftercare routine, you should experience no problems with your new piercing. Then once you are all healed, you will be able to enjoy this naughty little piercing.

This would be a great little surprise for your partner (if they are into that kind of thing).

I hope you found this article helpful.

    I couldn’t imagine getting an infection from a genital piercing-ohhh the pain. Your advice is excellent.

  2. Hi
    Holy sh** female genital piercing

    l can never understand why anyone will want to pierce their genitals,l guess its an age thing but at my age it`s a no-no.
    Nut still,the 14K gold Barbell is very lovely.
    Thanks again for a very informative and entertaining read.

    • Hey Roamy.

      I guess genital piercing ain’t for everyone. There are many reasons people do it, probably mostly young people though yeah.

      The 14k gold barbell is lovely isn’t it? There’s loads of other nice jewelry on that site too.

      Thanks for taking your time to read and comment.

  3. I personally love all piercings, in fact, I wish I had more. I love your article and think it is extremely important and helpful to all those with new piercings. Infections are no joke and a real pain in the you know what haha. Thankfully, they can easily be avoided by simply taking proper care of the pierced area. Your article outlines the best way to do that! Cheers to you and happy piercing!

    • Hi Tera.

      Piercings are great. I’m glad you found my article to be helpful.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

  4. Hannah, I read the first article I saw on your site, “Female Gentile Piercing Aftercare Guide”. I do not have any piercings at all. I did find the article interesting. I could not imagine having piercings, never the less gentile piercings. The article was written well. I learned much about a topic I knew very little about. Your article on keloids on the nose was also very interesting. In matter of fact I read several articles. I found them all written well and informative. To someone who knows absolutely nothing about body piercing, the articles were easy to follow and understand. If I was interested in this topic, I would return to your site. Good luck.

    • Hi Louis.

      I’m glad you found my articles informative. I really do appreciate you taking your time to read them, despite not being interested in body piercings.

      Thanks very much for reading and taking your time to leave a comment.


  5. Hi Hannah, the entire time I was reading your article (great read) I felt like “ouch” but then when I saw the 14k gold barbell I suddenly went to “damn, this must look very nice!” Do you get a “medicine silver” pierce when piercing and then switch it to other metal/ material or is it one and only and you can’t change it?

  7. I must admit, the thought of getting genitals pierced makes me cringe but there, I am a grandma for heavens sake, what would I be wanting a piecing for!
    Even so, for those who are hell bent on getting these piercings done, this would be an ideal website to put on their favourites list.
    Well done for broaching a subject that many will find very informative and useful. This could possible help avoid infections and help those that have been unfortunate enough to have contracted one! Ches

    • Hey Ches. To each their own! I get that genital piercings are not for everyone.

      I hope this post will be of help to many who have/want any piercing in the genital area. I find there is a lack of quality information on this topic.

      Thanks for stopping by.
