How long do I wait before i can change my earrings, after just getting an earlobe piercing?

Ok, so its been about 4 1/2 weeks since i got my earlobes pierced. The woman who pierced my ears told me to wait 6 weeks before changing them, although iv had many other people tell me that they should be fine if i were to change them out now. I havnt had any problems with them, but im still just wondering when i can take them out.

    If it is your lobes, it should be fine. I have lobe, helix and tragus pirecings and I changed them within a week. I did not get any infection, even though there will be a little pain when changing it.
