Q: why are my nipples pointing downward and how can i fix it :(

uh... hi, well, okay, i'm 16 on the pill and my tits grew to a bigger size then they were before, but one thing i've noticed, is that my nipples point downwards, not upwards like most girls my age. i havent had any kids, and i dont play sports, so i dont think i've damaged them too much.... i have no idea how long it has been this way, but i just noticed the difference from other girls recently, is there any way i can fix them (other then some surgery) and could you help me on why this has happened?

What you are describing sounds perfectly normal. The size and shape of your breasts depends more on your genetic makeup than anything else. All women have different breasts, and even on one woman there are differences in size and shape. You are unique, like everyone else!


Since you are on the pill, make an appointment with the doctor that prescribed it and ask that doctor questions you have about your body.
