Put a little rubbing alcohol on a tissue and gently rub it on the beads to remove any oils. Then, hold on to the beads using a fresh tissue between your fingers and the metal so you can get a better grip. Otherwise, have a professional remove it and sterilize the new one before insertion. Good luck! Are you moving up a gauge? I have stretched mine to 00 and have considered bifurcation, but have since taken it back down in size. Titanium is always the best way to go in any genital piercing.

when i have an issue with stuck beads i try using multiple clamps to wrench it of but if for some reason it wont you can always cut the jewelry of with a pair of wire cutters i would definitly only do this as a last result though cause cutting the jewelry is gonna leave it not as smooth and could scrape against tissue when you remove it i no i have had issues like this with curved bars before alot of the time the bead doesnt go on straight and theyll get stuck good luck
If the tissue doesn't work, latex gloves can help get grip.
Also, if you can get haemostatic clamps, put a bit of tissue under it so it doesn't mark the jewelry, and it should help hold the bar steady.

try a warm saline soak prior to trying to remove it, the heat could cause the jewelry to expand, as well as break up any sebum or other bodily fluids which are probably sticking to it acting like glue. i agree with the other suggestions as well, but the alcohol. that''s a sensative area you don't want to use that there, not to mention it can dry up the skin and irratate the cells and tissue.
