Pregnancy Q&A

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on March 25, 2013

Q. My belly button is pierced. Do I have to take the ring out during pregnancy?

A. It really depends on the level of discomfort you are having. Some women are fine with it, others find that as their belly grows and stretches, it pulls and causes pain or even tearing!

As your doctor his or her preference along with what is right for YOU. Depending on your pregnancy, health condition, and other pregnancy symptoms, you may receive a recommendation.

For most women, it is a personal choice that will be made as their pregnancy progresses and the piercing becomes simply uncomfortable.
