    I stretched from a healed 12ga to a 10ga about a week ago and had a little pain the next day and some crusties but nothing like the initial piercing. It's feeling great right now with no pain and no crusties but my piercer told me to wait about a month before i stretched again. I really wanna go down to an 8 but i don't know if it's going to cause damage. What should I do?

    when I was stretching I would wait 2 weeks and then try an bigger size, its really up to you and how your ears feel, and yes you can put in different jewelry that is the same sized

    yea that's what i was going to do and i had mine healed for about a week but he told me it was going to hurt a lot more. not much of a fan of pain so i just stuck to the one size.

    i waited 2 weeks before each stretch. but when i stretched from a 6-4, i tore it because i was stretching too fast. just take your time. wait the month.

    always wait 1-3 months between stretches. why tear your ears when you don't have too just b/c you can't wait. you'll thank me later.

    the better suggestion would be to use a taper, and if it hurts like hell stop, not everyone needs 1-3 months. I didnt, and had no pain or tearing till I hit a 2g, which is going to hurt no matter what you do really.
