Recently I have been suffering from sore nipples. Especially when I touch them - then they hurt more. When I run or undertake physical activity they hurt more - it has been going on for almost two weeks now.

I know there can be no chance that I am pregnant. At all.

Please help - what can this be?

Thank you,

  • I get the same thing from time to time for no apparent reason. With me it only happens a few times a year and lasts for probably less than a week, but like you, i can't find anything to attribute it to either. Very odd.

  • It may be the result of aerobic activity. When running our clothing moves with the motion of your body and the resulting friction can irritate your nipples, esecially if you just recently picked up the habit. As a male it even happens to me from time to time. Having been in the military I have seen this happen often after a run. Consistent running can lead to more irritation reasonalby account for increasing sensitivity. You may try investing in a substance called mole skin. It is a cream that solidifies and basically creates a protective barrier between your skin and clothes. For people who get blisters often from ruck marches placing this where they know they will get blisters helps to reduce/prevent getting them. You may also want to invest in a better sports bra. One that really holds your facilities in place and reduces friction. Hope this helps...Paul
