Pregnant. Pierced out lips, pus came out. Should I be worried about infection

Hello I am 20 weeks pregnant and I left my lip piercing out for 2 days and when I put it back through today it was closed over a tiny bit so not thinking about it I pushed it back through. When I was cleaning the piercing just before I noticed that there was a bit of pus coming out so I was just wondering if I should be worried about infection and if I should see a doctor ?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
This sounds already like infection but it usually pass spontaneously. If you notice redness and pus progression you should visit a doctor and take some antibiotics for local apply. Try not to have piercing during the accouchement as it can lead to certain complications. Wish you good health.
