How long does a belly button piercing need to heal?

Its supposed to take about 6 to 9 months to heal but if you get pierced at a time where you have to sit alot it usually does not heal right and you'll most likely end up taking it out. I suggest getting it during the summer and clean it well and it should be fine in 6 to 8 weeks.

Does your belly button get closed when your pregnant?

When you get pregnant, most care providers recommend removing your belly button ring. Even women who don't remove their rings report that belly button rings itch and pull as the belly stretches around the fifth or sixth month. There is also the risk of infection if the belly button ring scratches you or opens a small wound. If you do take out your belly button ring, the piercing hole will probably close, requiring you to re-pierce your belly button after having your baby. However, if you don't want to take out your belly button ring you may want to purchase a non-metal pregnancy piercing ring. These are flexible and two inches long to accommodate your growing belly. Pregnant women claim that this product allows them to keep their bellies pierced without the discomfort of other belly button piercing.

It is always best to wait 3 months in between letting your piercing heal and getting it re-done. Re-piercing too early can make your chances for scarring higher, and also raise your chance for infection if the previous one was not allowed to heal. Wait 3 months.
