The Shape Of The Breast Nipple Is Not The Same?
Hello. I, Andre, want to ask about my wife’s nipples. I haven’t been married long. But I feel there are irregularities in my wife’s nipples. The left nipple protrudes slightly but the right nipple does not protrude. Is that normal and how is the solution so that they both stand out equally?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. In the medical world, nipples that come into it are called inverted nipples. This condition is experienced by 10-20% of women from the entire population and is a completely normal condition. There are various levels of inverted nipples, depending on their ability to re-emerge. Some come in but can come out with finger pressure and then last for a certain period of time, there are those who enter and can come out with pressure but immediately come back after the pressure is released, and some remain in despite pressure. For more convenience, see the image below.
This can happen because it is short milk ducts, the presence of connective tissue, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and can also be a sign of infection, pus accumulation, and even cancer. But for those related to the disease, usually in addition to getting inside there are other signs that can be found, such as pain, pus or other discharge from the nipple, the shape of the skin around the nipple that changes, the presence of lumps, redness and so forth. If so, you should immediately consult a doctor. If it is pure, only the nipples will go inside, this should not be a concern. It's just that indeed, if your wife wants to breastfeed her child later, he might have trouble. For that, he must remove her nipples before breastfeeding her child. If that doesn't work, then he should consult a pediatrician or lactation doctor.
Regarding treatment, this condition usually does not require further treatment because it is not a disease, does not interfere with sexual desire and no pain. Even if there is a form of treatment, the form is surgery and because surgery is also risky, many people prefer to leave it as it was originally. But if you really want it, you can consult a surgeon. So, hopefully answering your question.
