Sharp needle like pain in my left nipple, what could it be?

I'm only 18, my last period was 14 days ago. I had gotten into my pjs when all of a sudden it felt like I got jabbed by a needle. I was standing at the time. It keeps happening every few minutes. It's unusually harder than the right, and looks purplish. My whole left breast has become slightly swollen too. I haven't had intercourse in 7 weeks.

Hi Anon, Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. There are many things that can be the cause for this. From the type of bra you might be wearing, or any trauma to the breast. Between cycles, sometimes your breasts can become swollen due to enlarged milk ducts. If the symptoms persist or if you notice any discharge, it's best to see your doctor. https://www.empowher.com/condition/breast-conditions Best, DaisyNovember 18, 2011 - 4:32am
