breast question

This has been bothering me for a while. I have noticed that my breasts are not the same size. I know that is pretty common. Its a slight difference not really too noticeable. The thing that bugs me is that my left breast seems sunken in. The nipple is kind of caved in and just is totally different from the right, which is always responsive. There also seems to be some slight dried up discharge on it.
I should mention that I had a child 7 months ago, and tried to breastfeed but that only lasted about 2 months. So its been a good 5 months since then.

Have you talked with your doctor about your nipple that is sunken in, compared to your other nipple? This would be an important symptom to call your doctor about, just to rule out any medical conditions.

You would also want to mention that you have discharge from your nipple that is sunken in (it sounds like your other nipple does not have discharge, so it most likely is not from lactating). Women can still lactate, even after months of not breastfeeding, so I don't want to alarm you, but please make sure you talk with your doctor or nurse about if these are post-breastfeeding symptoms for you specifically, your natural anatomy after pregnancy/childbirth, or a medical condition.

Please let us updated!
