Causes of dark nipples

Causes of dark nipples

Women typically undergo many periods of hormonal changes throughout their life, especially during pregnancy, menstruation, and after breastfeeding. Are any of these the culprit of your dark nipples? Thea will help you figure this out.

1. Pregnancy

Pregnancy – the very start of motherhood - is probably the universal most blissful time for most women.  However, this is also the period where women have to face many problems, including hormonal imbalances. Most women experience breast enlargement as well as discoloration of the nipples and other body’s parts.

2. Menstruation

Although the discoloration of nipples is mild during menstruation, it is the problem that most women go through every month. When this period is over, the body will return to normal and the nipples will be back to their normal state.

3. Breastfeeding

Nipple darkening is the problem that every breastfeeding woman encounters. Breastfeeding means increased rubbing of the nipples, making them darker. In spite of that, this period is full of lovely and enjoyable moments in every mother’s life.

Darkened nipples also indicate that you are a healthy mother. Therefore, relax and enjoy your breastfeeding time. After this period, you will certainly find out how to make your nipples pink again if you take the time to dig into it.

4. Aging

As women get older, aging signs start to appear on different body parts. You will experience skin discoloration, wrinkles, sagging breasts, and darkened nipples. Moreover, when you become older, your health is not as good as when you are younger and you are more prone to chronic diseases that require medications. These medications can also cause your nipples to turn dark.
