The discussion of inverted nipples can be a sensitive topic. You may feel like you are the only one with this condition, but you are not alone. In America, 2 to 3% of women have at least one inverted nipple.
Nipple inversion can be present from birth, occur during puberty, following pregnancy and breastfeeding, be part of normal aging, occur with weight loss, or be related to trauma or other inflammatory problems of the breast. Inverted nipples can not only make a woman self-conscious, but can also cause physical discomfort. Inverted nipples can be difficult to conceal and some patients often avoid swimwear and athletic clothing for that specific reason.
