Is there something wrong with my nipple piercing?

I had my nipple pierced on Saturday (today is Monday) and it has been bleeding excessively since! By excessively I mean dripping with blood and soaking through night time pads I have in my bra and the bra itself.. not nice.
The blood seems to be thick and squishy and unlike anything I have seen before.
I am cleaning it twice daily as advised but cleaning it seems to be making it bleed more.
I'm not sure if this is normal or how to help my situation?

Any advice would be lovely as I have no clue what to do!

Thanks xx

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

I have no personal experience with nipple piercing. But, if you are concerned about the amount of bleeding, you need to have it checked.

Where did you have the piercing done?

I would suggest you reach out to your primary care physician. I really don't know if any one at a piercing salon will be of help, but you could try.
