hey there, I am a 18 year old female and as of late my nipples have been really tender and tonight i noticed they are a little swollen. They've been this sore for about 4 days now.. The aeriola around my nipples are normal, no color change or soreness, and my whole actual breast is not tender, just my nipples. it isnt common for me to have this around or near my period, so im a little worried. I had intercourse last about 5 days ago, we didnt use a condom. im on birth control - on my 2nd week of my 5th month of taking it... i dont really think im pregnant, but im just not sure what it is thats going on, any ideas? thanks girls.
