at night, I want to ask about nipples that go inward. Should the inward nipple treatment be done during pregnancy or can it be done without having to wait for pregnancy first, for example by using the Hoffman technique. Thank you

Hi Mariya,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Some women are born with inverted nipples. Not only disturbing aesthetics, this can also make it difficult for mothers and babies in the breastfeeding process later. Therefore, this condition should get treatment as early as possible.

Overcoming the nipple that goes in does not have to be done during pregnancy. Starting from before you were pregnant you are allowed to do it. One way that is recommended is the Hoffman technique. This technique is done by placing the thumb and forefinger of the hand facing each other between the nipples. Next, press the two fingers while pulling the nipple outwards. Do this activity repeatedly (approximately 5 times a day), while rotating the finger in a clockwise direction.

When pregnant, it is not recommended to do this technique excessively. Because, excessive breast stimulation has the potential to increase the production of the hormone oxytocin. This hormone can trigger premature uterine contractions. If the contractions are strong enough in early pregnancy, it can trigger a miscarriage (abortion). Meanwhile, in more advanced pregnancies, excessive breast stimulation is feared to trigger premature labor.

Many babies and mothers have successfully undergone exclusive breastfeeding even with inverted nipples. This is possible because, when breastfeeding later, the baby's sucking on the nipple will automatically pull the nipple out. Therefore, as your baby becomes more adept at breastfeeding, the nipples will stick out even more. Furthermore, you can also use a nipple suction device that is currently sold in the market.

If you still have problems with the shape of your nipples and breasts, you can consult directly with the nearest doctor.

I hope this helps.
