Loss of sensation after a piercing

I had to remove my VCH piercing because the skin began to swallow the jewelry and became infected (I had the piercing with no problems for almost a year). Ever since I took it out, I believe there is a difference when it comes to sensation and I want to get it re-done, but I am worried about scar tissue, rejection and nerve damage. Is it wise to get this piercing again and what should I do differently?

I don’t know if the piercing actually became infected, I don’t think I have ever seen an infected VCH piercing. More likely it was very swollen (perhaps from a bump or rough contact) and it had swollen up past what the bar could accommodate.

Most people find that a VCH won’t necessary increase sensation that much on a day-to-day basis (like walking up stairs, etc) - however during sexual contact, as the hood itself fills with blood and retracts back slightly (similar to a male’s foreskin) the jewellery comes in direct contact with the clitoris.

You won’t find that you will generally loose sensation after getting it done, or removing it once healed. Some ladies do find that they loose that ‘extra’ sensation that the jewellery gave them.

I would so get it re-done, you might even be able to taper the old one back open (speeding up your healing) and be just dandy! Just make sure you don’t ever wear a bar too short in there - or the same thing can happen again.

As always, make sure you check out a piercers HEALED portfolio for the same piercing and make sure you are 100% comfortable with the quality of jewellery and service. :)
