Sore nipples in menopause
growingoldgracefully posted:
I am 51 and this problem just started for me in the last week. Very painful, contracted and sore nipples. After reading this and seeing someone mention lavender oil, I decided to try it. I applied some lavender oil as well as 100% pure therapeutic grade oil called PanAway directly to my nipples. The relief was almost immediate. After about 10 minutes my nipples are not even contracted, erect or hard...very soft again with no pain. I'm not sure how long this will last..I will keep you posted!

Gosh - I hope you're right - I have had the same issue since entering menopause almost 2 years ago and it's so annoying! I'll order now and keep my fingers crossed !
lisajanz responded:
Ouch Ouch Ouch..... Got the PanAway but it burned on impact - No luck with your remedy My nipples are softer but still erect?
