Does your left nipple remain inverted at all times or is it able to protract with stimulation?Many women have congenital inverted nipples which aren't indicative of underlying health problems but a sudden inversion of a previously "normal" nipple requires timely evaluation by either your GP or GYN.Best regards,John
