About this symptom

Sore/Sensitive Nipples

Changes to the breasts can begin very soon after conception. Increasing levels of hormones cause increased blood flow and changes to the breast tissue. This increase can cause sore or sensitive nipples, a change that can be enjoyable for some but painful for others. As your body adjusts to the new surge of hormones the pain should subside.

For last 3 hrs they are really giving me pain and are super dry. When I wear bra everything calms down but without it I'm in constant pain.

I'm 17-18DPO, for last three days my nipples have been very sensitive and itchy. At the end of the day, they are literally killing me.
