Are your nipples in the nipple protection program?

I used to have "outties" when it came to my nipples. Suddenly after I finished breastfeeding my last child my nipples completely inverted. I absolutely hate this. They can be coaxed from their hiding spots, but unless we talk to them real sweet they stay in their cave.

Anyone else suffer from inverted nipple syndrome? Any way you know of to fix this?

  • This is NOT common for one or both nipples to invert after breastfeeding. It is really important that you mention this to your Dr. and get an exam. Chances are it is nothing other than annoying, but this CAN be a sign of breast cancer.

  • Wow Anon.

    I don't regret my decision to provide my children the best nutrition at the cost of my breasts. I would never regret that. But I sure do miss my nipples.

  • I'm sure the situation in itself is not funny and I apologize if anyone thought I was laughing at it... I meant the way it was presented was funny

  • Really? I did not know that. Well I'll definitely bring it up then at my next appointment in April. Considering I've had cervical cancer twice now I don't really feel like messing around with breast cancer. Geez, I freaking hate cancer. I'm too young for this crap!

  • ZaTa: I didn't take offense to you. I'm pretty light hearted and quite the smart ass. I purposely presented the question in an amusing way. :)
