Plug won't go in. :/

Welp, after 2 months, I decided to move up from 4g to 2g. My left ear went just fine with a little sting, but the plug fit. My right ear, same thing. Taper went in fine, but I went to put in the plug and it wouldn't fit! :( I'm pretty frustrated and just put my 4g back in so that I don't end up ripping it or something. Advice? Halp???

It is recommended you wait 3 months before stretching up to 2G. If you have to force it, then your ear is not ready. Put your 4G plugs back in and wait at least another month. Maybe longer depending on your stretching history.

You are also around the size where you might consider looking into expanding with the taping method which is much more gradual and kind to your ears. Don't rush it. You will have these ears for the rest of your life.
