My questions are posed to those that have had them a while (whose piercings have healed) --
1. Do you have to take them out to go through airport security?
2. Did you get pregnant and if so, did you leave them in throughout your pregnancy and in labour?
3. Do you have any problems at all with swimming, either in ocean, chlorine pool, wherever?
Any other "practical, living with a VCH piercing" advice you might have to give is helpful too.
