See MD: Likely that is related to frequent stimuli- from your husband. To stop it, you have to stop the over stimulation to the breast. Having said that, you should also go to see your doctor to rule out other causes like medication, other condition like certain tumor etc- especially with your excess hair and high blood pressure- certain tumor on the pituitary gland for instance has to be ruled out. ...Read more

I have inverted nipples they come out only during cold or stimulation.i also hv saggy breasts. is it normal? M a virgin.will pregnancy correct this?

Normal: Normal to have inverted nipples. Common in women as well as men. Not sure what HV refers to but 'saggy' breasts could be due to size or normal genetics. If it's a cosmetic issue you could address it with a plastics doctor. Pregnancy will make your breasts fuller but generally with age and after pregnancy your breasts may develop stretch marks or lose more fat so might be worse, hard to say. ...Read more

Always had green nipple discharge when squeeze.but now with some white&a lot more than usual&breasts sore and bigger and feel full.Normal period 13/06

Stop squeezing!: The majority of nipple discharge is benign, meaning not related to cancer, especially if green or milky. Unilateral and spontaneous is more concerning than bilateral or with squeezing. First, get yourself examined by your physician or a breast surgeon. If not suspicious on breast exam and possible imaging and not due to meds, then leave your breasts alone and stop squeezing! It makes it worse! ...Read more
