sweetj172 - Thanks for your question. For future reference, all you have to do is go to the home page and look for the "Ask" box, that's in the middle area of the page, and click on it to be able to "Ask" your question.

In terms of your question, there are many reasons why women get nipple pain. Sore, tender breasts are a norm for many women, as a result of hormone changes during their menstrual cycle. Sometimes minor problems can cause this, such as a poorly fitting bra, an injury that you may have forgotten, hormonal changes, and so forth. Sometimes it can be a symptom of an infection or a more serious medical condition.

There is a condition known as mastitis that occurs most frequently among breastfeeding women, but can also occur in women who have never breastfed. You can read more about it here: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/mastitis

If the pain continues please contact your primary care physician or gynecologist for advice and an appointment if needed.
