Are my nipples normal?
One of my nipples points in; the other one points out.
Why? Am I abnormal?
Breasts come in all shapes and sizes-even on the same person. One might be a little bigger than the other or, as in your case, one nipple can be an innie while the other is an outie. Yes, like belly buttons.
All these differences are perfectly healthy and normal. In fact, up to 10 percent of all women have inverted nipples, explains gynecologist Dr. Adelaide Nardone. Breast innies happen when the connective tissues that run from the center of your breasts to the milk ducts, located just underneath your nipples, are slightly short. So the nipple pokes slightly inward.
Since you're still growing, there's a chance your nipple will poke out one day. But if it never does, who cares? There's no health risk in having an inverted nipple.
