sore nipples question
Wed, 01-14-2004 - 7:26pm
Can someone clarify for me what hormone causes sore/tender nipples for a few days, then subsides. I am in 2ww after doing a cycle of follistim injections.

Also, do all pregnant women experience darkening of the nipples if they are pregnant?

Hello what I was told is that the progesterone released after O is what can make your nipples hurt.

No, darker nipples are not mandatory (I have had 5 pregnancies so I am pretty positive about this !)
