My nipples/Montgomery bumps have been very sensitive hard&dark for couple days. Mild cramps. Supposed to start in week and a half. Possible pregnancy?
For the past week my nipples have been hard and tender, which has never happened before. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, what could it be?
What will we think?: What can we think of next to worry about? No. The answer is no. First comes conception. Then comes implantation. Then the fetus has to grow big enough to have blood cells and share chemicals with the mother's body. That is about fourteen days or so after conception. Then the body missed a period and the pregnancy takes hold. Please if you have missed a period get tested. If not you must wait. ...Read more

Can your nipples get larger and darker nipples before your period? or is that just a pregnancy symptom?
Had little spots during my last period and around my nipples is a light brown color. Are these pregnancy symptoms?
Hello I am 4 DPO & starting yesterday, my nipples have been constantly hard and very tender to touch. Could this be an early pregnancy sign?
Too soon to know:
Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

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
