I got my nose pierced 2 months ago, and my piercer said it would be OK to change after 2 months. I'm a little dubious about changing it, so was wondering what your guys experience was :)

I did, it went really well. Make sure you have your warm salt water on hand to sanitize before and after you change it. And be gentle. I would not suggest trying to put in a screw one, I highly recommend a nose bone for the first time, and then leave that one in for awhile.

Check to see if it's healed first as everyone's is different. And be sure the jewelry is sanitized

I think it healed, I haven't had crusties around it for about a month, and it hasn't been infected. I got a screw in it now, and it was horrible when it nearly came out a couple of days after I had it done. was hard to try and scrrw back in! :')

You should be fine! Just make sure everything is clean, especially your hands, and if you've stopped doing daily cleaning of your piercing, resume for about a week.

I've got both nose bones and l shaped studs too. which would be easiest to change it to first time? sorry for the questions.

I personally HATE nose bones, but I know other people swear by them. You might just have to test a few to see what you like. The best of the best are internally threaded studs, but they're unfortunately really hard to come by. I get mine at The Alley in Chicago. I'm not sure if they have a website, but you can try searching there.

My piercer said to wait 3 months just to be safe, and it takes 6 months to heal, if you plan on changing before it's healed I'd suggest having a professional change it because it's difficult for beginners to change and can cause a lot of trauma trying to figure it out

I'd say wait about 2 more months, but try to move the ring you have around a bit, if its still sore definitely don't change it, but if you don't feel anything when you move it around then it should be healed pretty well.

I agree with Olivia 100%

I actually changed mine by myself, from a screw to a hoop.
I didn't go to a professional, and it was really easy to change it.
I wouldn't wait 6 months honestly.
j just waited three weeks and nothing happened when I changed it
