Hi there,

Decided i want to stretch my ears, got my ears pierced 1 Month ago, so now its just a healing/waiting game!

Dont know if this is the section, but i feel that my initial studs are too tight, they have allready been loosened off but are still leaving a type of Ring/Indentation on the lobe.

I also have 1 lobe healing faster than the other, is this normal?

It's pretty normal to have your ears heal at different rates;you'll likely find that when you do start stretching them,they'll do that too,or you'll have a 'difficult ear',meaning that the one will stretch more easily than the other.That's what most will seem to experience(for me it's my right). But since it's been a month since the intitial piercing, maybe it'd be worth asking your piercer to change them because they're too short. It's been 20 years since I got my ears initially pierced,so I don't know if I'm remembering correctly,but I think I remember something about it was ok to change them after 6 weeks or something,but I could be remembering wrong,so your piercer could answer that better.
But welcome, I know I've found this forum to be pretty helpful :)
