  • You'll probably get an infection. Wouldn't risk it.

  • Ask your health care provider

  • Not really the best idea. Check with your doc, but expect a "no." Also don't expect any piercing places will even touch you.

  • You would have to remove it when you give birth, especially if you have a c-section. Why go through that and have it close up?

  • Most piercers(professional ones at least) will not pierce ANYTHING on a pregnant woman. It is risky because if you get an infection it can cause preterm labor, you can also contract other diseases.

  • No. Not really the best idea. You will have to remove it for delivery.
