I'm 6w 2D thanks for your advice,a friend of mine says I could leave em in the while time except giving birth and I could still breastfeed, but doesn't sound fun to me, and my nipples are already so sore so early. Lol odds are I'll have em out by the end of this week!

Not an answer to your question and I don't mean to sound like everyone else who's asked, but was it painful getting them done? Like the healing process and all that. I've been interested in getting mine pierced for quite some time but a lil chicken!

I had to take them out my last pregnancy at around 10 weeks. They got super sore. If you leave them in until you deliver you will likely regret that. Once you deliver your milk is going to come in (breastfeeding or not) & you may not get them out by that point. My friend left her's in as she wasn't going to nurse & they ended up ripping! OUCH. @Shelly for me it hurt worse than anything I've ever done. It took a long time to heal (3-4 months) completely to where I didn't have pain moving them or bumping them. But for me it did make them more sensitive. & there is a risk that you could damage your milk ducts & wouldn't be able to nurse future babies.

Didn't hurt as bad as my tongue, but it did hurt getting them done and bout 2 weeks after. I washed with antibacterial soap every shower which made them heal faster than normal and never ever got infected :) I really want to keep them but looker I said they're getting so sore And I don't want to wait till their anymore sore to take em out I would prolly regret it also. Anybody know how early milk starts developing in the breasts? I should prolly take em out before I start lactating anyway...lol I'm just concerned!

I'm happy someone asked this question. I still have mine in and I'm 17 weeks, but my boobs nore nipples are sore. I have had mine for so long its like a part of me. I don't mind giving up drinking and stuff but idk taking out my nipple rings is something I really don't want to have to do lol.

If it doesn't hurt you dont have to take them out at all. The milk will come out of those holes as well. Actually making your milk flow faster
