Your Bod

My nipples itch (and I am SO embarrassed!)

I’m too embarrassed to ask anyone else this, but is it normal for my nipples to itch?

Itchiness is a totally normal part of breast growth, says Dr. Sharon Marshall, clinical chief of adolescent medicine at a children’s hospital in Michigan. You’ll probably get extra itchy about a week before your period, because your body is releasing tons of hormones during that time. As your breasts continue to grow, you’ll also start to notice tenderness and soreness before your period. Wear a loose-fitting bra when you’re PMSing, and use lotion to tame the itch.
