It will take your ear about 6 to 9 weeks for it to heal. Just make sure you take good care of it to prevent infections. You can go to http://www.livestrong.com/article/232068-how-long-to-keep-studs-in-pierced-ears/ and http://www.wikihow.com/Care-for-Newly-Pierced-Ears for more information.

Maybe you should go back to the place where you got it done and ask them

I had to keep it in for 6 weeks and turn it every day with a starter kit.
