Is it normal to have purple nipples sometimes? I feel like when there is something touching them or i am wearing a bra, they are the normal pink color, but otherwise they tend to turn to purple. Is this normal? Or could it be due to circulation?

Hi Zaina,

It could be due to circulation, or any other possible variable, e.g. temperature, medication, diet. But so long as they don't hurt and aren't causing you discomfort and/or pain, it sounds like it's pretty normal. [Smile]

Just popping in here - my nipples change color a LOT. Sometimes they're purplish, other times the areola goes almost the same color as the rest of my skin but very transparent. Sometimes I can see all the veins, other times I only see the red ones. They turn bright red in the cold sometimes and other times, especially from having a lot of friction (be it with a bra or someone else's skin), they turn purple.

I think as long as the changes are symmetrical (if they are both exposed to cold, they turn the same color, for instance), it's probably what's normal for your body. [Big Grin]
