Can anyone explain why I have pain in my nipples?

This is probably the 3rd I've gotten this pain. Basically, my right nipple sometimes feels like its inflamed or something and I have no idea why. I'm only 17 and I've never had sex so I think it might be a skin condition or something like that. I would also like to know any ways of how I can stop this pain.

Hi Vicky - Some women do experience sore breasts and nipples before, during and after their period. It may be hormone-related, or from any number of activities - sexual activity that was a little too rough, too tight sports bra, chaffing during exercise.

If you continue to have breast pain that is not cyclical (related to the cycle of your period), it is important to call your doctor if your pain continues. You can read about this topic on our reference page about breast pain:
