What could be reasons of sore nipples? I'm not breast feeding and I don't have a baby...

Bra friction. Joggers often get sore nipples from friction. Small amounts of weight gain can increase breast size causing the usual bra to fit too tight. Hormone changes like estrogen from medications can also cause.

My wife says she has been experiencing sharp pains in breasts, sore nipples and pink. She has been breast feeding our new borne. Should we be worried?

Probably not. In the first few days and sometimes week or two of breastfeeding it can be painful. This is especially true if first child. There are many things you can do to relieve pain and the la leche league can be a good resource. If there is localized heat or redness or you have a fever there may be an infection and should see a provider to confirm. Even with infection you do not have to stop feeding. Read more...

I finished my period a week ago and now have sore nipples and tiny spots on the areola. They feel and look as though I am breast feeding?

Hormonal effects. If your period ended "one week ago" and your period is 5-7 days, you may be having a "double ovulation" which produces twice as much estrogen and progesterone, and the levels can mimic early pregnancy. These levels of hormone can have a temporary effect on your areolae, making them tender and slightly swollen. This is not abnormal, but if your next period is "late", get a serum pregnancy test.

My nipples are sore and leaking I have merina coil stopped breast feeding 10 months ago! What does this mean?

Unclear. This depends on what happened with your mild production over these past months...

If leakage has been intermittent, and every time you express there is milk, then I would say, just stop checking! Read more...
