Does pregnancy cause sore nipples?

If so, how long will the sore nipples last?


Answer by  raun08 (1839)

Yes, and unfortunately there is not any set time frame for the symptoms to arrive and dissipate. The surge of hormones causes the breast tissues to expand, which causes tenderness.

It can, any I would say you should invest in a supportive, soft, breathable cotton bra to keep things comfy as it can last as long as your pregnancy.

In early and late pregnancy your breast and nipples will be sore, it can last anywhere from a few weeks to the entire pregnancy. This will vary by pregnancy and person.


Answer by  John (9008)

It can; this is often related to lactation, or milk production. Although it can vary, this soreness generally lasts for as long as the mother lactates.

Yes. Your breasts and nipples will be very tender. It's usually the worst in the first trimester because your breasts will substantially grow. They may hurt later in the pregnancy because your breast will still be growing and the glands will be preparing to produce milk for your new baby.
