Guys can I swim even I just have my body piercing? My sister told me that I can't go swimming because I've just had a body piercing because swimming pools have chlorine and it would infect the part that is being pierced.

hmmm which part of the body did you get pierceD? i am not sure really, but my daughter who is only 10 months old got her ear pierced and the doctor said that she can just take a bath. she did not even forbade swimming, not that i asked. so i am not sure. but maybe just a precautionary measure, you wait for 3 days until you go swimming, just so you can avoid infection. after all, swimming is not a need. you can live without it. but i think that if you get a piercing on your belly button it will take longer to heal. so it is best to avoid anything that can cause irritation or infection. take care and God bless you!
