After Sex, I Got A Burning Pain In My Nipples, And I'm Worried.

Ihave a very painful burning feeling and itchiness in my nipples after my boyfriend sucked them and nibbled softly. I'm worried -; please help!

Answer

This could be simple irritation. Your nipples are very sensitive, and your boyfriend may have been a bit too rough, and injured them ever so slightly. Pressing cold compresses on them (gently!) might help alleviate the pain.

Another possibility is that this is a hormonal response to stimulation. Your body thinks you have a baby sucking on your breasts, and so tries to respond with milk. Whoops - nothing there - thus the pain/burning.

At any rate, if the pain/burning continues way beyond sex, then at some point see a doctor to find out what's up. I'm betting, though, that this will diminish fairly quickly.
