Can I Get My Labret Pierced While Pregnant?

I'm 14 weeks pregnant and I want to get my labret pierced. Is there any risk in that? I see nothing wrong with it, but I need more people to tell me what they think!

Personally, I wouldn't go getting anything pierced at 14 weeks pregnant. Anytime you put holes into any part of your body you have a chance of infection. Why risk it? You probably wouldn't get an infection but there's still that chance and why risk harming yourself and the unborn baby? I would consider waiting until after the pregnancy. Afterall, the time will go by sooner than you know it and then you won't have to worry about an infection harming the baby.

My mom owns a tattoo shop and they will pierce you and tattoo u but they make u sign a piece of paper saying that u know the risk and that u cant hold them liable to anything that happens.
I got pierced while I have been preggo.. I have my labret already but I had gotten my tounge re done.
It does take longer to heal and infection rate does increasee but it all depends on ur body. Like sdandra said tho most people wont do it... !! U should wait and just have ur baby. Cause i'll tell u a labret ring with a baby .. Ouch once they are old enough they love to pull it.. !!

Ask your doctor what he thinks! (i'm betting he doesn't think it's a good idea...)
