In brief: Many thingd
Your nipples are hormones and touch sensitive.
The fluctuation of your hormone levels that occur during the month or with pregnancy can cause soreness. Touch stimulation such as with foreplay or from an improperly fitting bra or from going beakers can also cause nipple soreness. If the soreness persists or if you have a nipple discharge or breast lump, i would recommend seeing your doctor for eval.
