    Rejection is also sometimes called migration.  And it doesn't have to involve infection at all.  Some people's bodies literally push out piercings.  Sometimes a piercing will move a little, and sometimes the body will try and push the ring all the way to the surface.

    There's no way to stop the process, as there's no definite cause.  It's up to you if you will try to keep the piercing or give it up.
