Nipple Pain

I have been having nipple pain, and not just around my cycle. My nipples are hard and sore to the touch. I cant find any information to do with nipple pain unless it has pregnancy attached and im not pregnant.

I need help!! My last period wasn't normal! Usually heavy and I have it for 7 days now last week I had a very light pink period on and off and only lasted 4 days. A week later my left nipple is so sore I can't lay on it! As I lay or stand my abdominal area is fine but as I get up from laying down it hurts like sharp pain! Last sexual intercourse with my partner was 3 weeks ago. Please help!!

Hello Anonymous,

Was the unusually heavy period after you had intercourse?
Or was the very light and short period after you had intercourse?

I suggest you consult your physician, either gynecologist if you see one regularly, or primary care physician. Sharp abdominal pain upon getting up is out of the ordinary as is a very sore nipple. Both symptoms need to be evaluated with a physical exam.

Back to your periods. If the very light period followed intercourse, and if it was unprotected intercourse, I tend to suspect implantation bleeding versus a period.

This is something to mention when you speak with your doctor about the painful nipple and abdominal pain.

Keep us updated.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post. 

You have very varied symptoms, from nausea to minor vomiting, abdominal pain to lower abdominal pain. 

Take a pregnancy test if you think pregnancy is possible, otherwise see your doctor to find out what may be causing such varying symptoms - you may even have a problem with your digestive system. 

Best,

Susan

Hi Anon

You need to see a doctor. Don't live with this pain anymore, you need to see a doctor for testing, otherwise you'll just end up guessing and wondering and reading a ton of information that doesn't pertain to you.

Best,

Susan
