Inverted nipple
Hi there

Im 23 years old and my left nipple always seems to go inwards, especially when it is really cold.. but it tends to stay more inwards than outwards. Have I got an inverted nipple and is this common/normal?.. Is there something I can do to make it ''normal'' or do I need to think about a form of surgery?

Thank you

It sounds like you may have an inverted nipple, but it does come out. There isn't anything that needs to be done. Breastfeeding is usually not a problem and breastpumps can be used at that time if necessary.
