Why won't my plugs fit in my ears?

Home More advice Beauty & Style

I've been stretching my ears for quite some time now, and about a month ago I went to a size 4, with no complications. However, I can not get my size 4 plugs to go in, and it's been 4 weeks since I went from a size 6 to a size 4. I've tried lubricating both the plugs and my earlobes, but it didn't seem to help. I've considered going up to a 2 gauge and then putting in the size 4 plugs and letting my ears shrink back down. What should I do?
