Ladies, does this happen to your nipples?

Asked by elijah (8652points) February 26th, 2009 from iPhone

I wouldn’t of asked, except now that I’ve seen the masterbation threads I figured this is pretty tame.
Anyway, the last few days I’ve had a neverending THO. I’m not cold, i dont feel “stimulated”. Why are my nipples so hard? Could this be a medical thing? Does this happen to anyone else?

To get an accurate answer, you probably should post pictures.

eponymoushipster's avatar

actually, @Mr_M, i think, as a professional, i need to see AND feel them, in order to provide an accurate and honest answer.

What is she gonna do? Shove them through her laptop monitor?

scamp's avatar

Ha ha! you guys are too funny!

@ elijahsuicide Mine are always like that, and I am fine, but you might want to ask your doctor during your next visit just to be on the safe side. Nothing else unusual? Like no lumps or tenderness?

@Mr_M we have the technology, we can fly her out here.

i know a young lady who is like that right before or after her period.

elijah's avatar

@scamp, no nothing unusual. Just the typical tingle if I touch them.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@elijahsuicide—you’re my favoritest.

elijah's avatar

@eponymoushipster haha I’m being serious here. They could explode or something!
(yeah I know they won’t, just kidding)

eponymoushipster's avatar

@elijahsuicide wow. uhm, you don’t have piercings or something in there, do you? it could be an infection, possibly.

melly6708's avatar

hehe no pics for me thanx

well i heard that if they are rubbed for about 15 seconds then they get hard.. maybe thats why.

elijah's avatar

Nope, no piercings.

@elijahsuicide some sort of hormonal imbalance perhaps?

elijah's avatar

@eponymoushipster hormonal imbalance?! What are you trying to say? :throws iPhone at wall:

scamp's avatar

Sounds like you’re ok to me, but I wouldn’t want to steer you the wrong way. If you are really concerned, a check up is the best way to be sure. i had a scare a couple of years ago, and luckily it turned out to be 3 benign cysts, but I know how one can worry.

While we are on this subject ( and I don’t mean to scare you, because you don’t seem to have symptoms of it ) there is a type of cancer that not many people know about. It’s called Infammatory Breast Disease.

I think this is a good way to let a lot of people know about it.

Oh god, that happens to me and I hate it. Sometimes I won’t even realize they’re hard and i’m wondering why people are staring at my chest. Totally embarrassing. I’ve never had it last that long though.

I wish I had some words of wisdom for you. Could you be pregnant?

lurve for your topics!

scamp's avatar

C’mon guys! She’s concerned about something very serious. Please stop with the tit jokes. Would you want nut jokes if you were worried about your testicles?

elijah's avatar

@scamp thanks for the link, I will definately check it out.
I don’t mind some jokes. That’s why I put funny topics. I figured the boys could make jokes while the ladies are helpful.

scamp's avatar

@elijahsuicide You’re very welcome sweety! It’s only FYI.. for future reference. I don’t want to alarm you.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@scamp no no, we jest because we love.

well, mainly, we love tits. but we’re just trying to help.
tits.

BOOBIES!

scamp's avatar

Yeah, I know. But it’s getting to be a bit much!

eponymoushipster's avatar

Tits ok, we’re just keeping a-breast of the situation. Don’t knocker it until you’ve tried it! It’s the mammary kind of jokes guys tell…and now you’ve made me feel like a boob for it.

had to

Mr_M's avatar

I wish I’d said that!

elijah's avatar

Yay! I got my first mod intervention on this question!

eponymoushipster's avatar

@elijahsuicide what – the WTF to “Ladies…”?

congrats by the way

In all seriousness… Mention this to the doc next time you have a mamogram or breast exam. Better to be safe than sorry.
(up until this thread, I thought you were a male…. Sorry!)

scamp's avatar

@elijahsuicide what mod.. where? I thought the remarks were funny, but kinda not needed when someone is worried about a possibly life threatening thing, so I spoke my piece.

elijah's avatar

@basp no worries! There have been quite a few times I think someone here is male/female until I read something that tells me otherwise.
I guess I better change my picture!

scamp's avatar

You look like a girl to me!!

elijah's avatar

@scamp no no no! A real mod! I had to change my question because it wasn’t clear.
Wait, are you an actual moderator? I’m not sure who they all are….
But no I wasn’t implying it was you.

basp's avatar

Elija
Your picture is probably just fine. I can’t see well enough to see your picture clearly. It’s all I can do to read the fluthers. I have very poor eyesight.
Having said all of that… I suppose males could have nipple problems too.

scamp's avatar

OOhhhh! I gotcha now!! Silly me!!

La_chica_gomela's avatar

Um…if I know what a THO was…maybe I would be able to tell you if I have ever had a neverending one before…I feel so left out. :-(

PrancingUrchin's avatar

@La_chica_gomela , in my experiences THO has stood for “titty hard-on.” Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

eponymoushipster's avatar

i am loving this thread. loving it

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@PrancingUrchin – Thank you! I see, well in that case, I’d have to go with no. Sorry :-/
I don’t think it sounds like a medical “problem” though. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Can you like, feel that they’re hard? Or you know they are because when you look at them, they’re hard? Just wondering, I’m not sure I can tell the difference without like touching them or looking at them.

scamp's avatar

@elijahsuicide no I’m not a mod… not even close, ha ha!!

If you have an S/O like me that plays with them ALL the time then they are going to stay UP, My Wife’s are tall all the time and act like starter switches. Nothing abnormal about erect nipples- a pic is needed for a conclusive answer!

Violet's avatar

It happens to be all the time.
When stimulated, the nerves send a message to the smooth muscle in that area to contract. When the muscle contracts, the nipple gets tighter, producing a nipple “hard-on.” The stimulus can be physical (a loosely fitting shirt that moves back and forth over the nipple), or it can be a drop in temperature. It can even be a psychological stimulus, like thinking about something sensual or sexual. These special nerves are part of the autonomic nervous system, which is instrumental in helping the body prepare for sexual activity. source
