Possibly: If the piercing hits into the ducts, milk flow could be affected. Production should not be a problem, but you may be more prone to mastitis and/or have some minor problems with let down of the milk. That being said, I have known many women to breast feed without any problems who had history of nipple piercing, so I wouldn't rule it out just based on that. ...Read more

Yes, temporarily: Often, nipple sensitivity is increased initially. This can be way too much, at first. Within few weeks, this subsides toward normal. Unfortunately, breast augmentation can also cause permanent loss of nipple sensation on one or both sides, due to injury to the nerves in the breast. This is very rare, but, if it happens to you, it is of little conciliation that it happens very infrequently! ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
