So I have felt a bit awkward asking my dr this but has anyone ever breastfead after having nipple peircings? For some reason im a bit worried as to how this may affect the process. Its been many years since I had them but there is still small holes there and sometimes a discharge comes out.. Again tmi im sure.. Any prior experience appreciated.
This is my first, im due 1/7/11 and have not noticed any milk retention at this point.

I had them MANY years ago and took them out when I found out I was preggo with my son who's now almost 12. It did not have any effect on breastfeeding..although looking back I do have to admit I wonder why in my young years I did such a crazy thing! ;p Hope this helps.
