Nipples to large, what can I do?
Posted on: 09/12/2002
i have a problem with my breasts..im 14 years old, almost 15 and my nipples are rather LARGE. im embarassed of this, because it wont be a turn on for guys if something happens to occur. is there a way to reduce the size of the nipple? and i also have goose-bump like bumps on my nipple..how can i get rid of those as well? help!
There's no way, short of invasive cosmetic surgery to reduce or change the size of a nipple or breast. At 14, your body is still changing all the time, and by the time you've finished developing no doubt your nipples and your breasts will be perfect for your body. The goose-bump like bumps are totally normal, and you can find them on most women's nipples. When you do meet a guy who you want to be intimate with, the size of your nipples shouldn't matter to him. If you're still concerned, try talking to your doctor next time you have an appointment.
