god you guys must dread seeing my username pop up everyweek with another bf question......you would not think I have done this before smile

My nipple are just recovering from thrush (quite bad even the DR winced) which I had for two weeks before diagnosis and treatment.

Since monday/tuesday I get this strange pain like everytime he sucks its like he is sucking daggers through my nipples. This is different to the pain I had with thrush. and after he has finished my nipples are very painful and white. This is not all the time, only when my nipples are hard, if its really hot I get no pain. I have had my latch checked but i am going to a different place tomorrow to get it checked again.

I also suffered with really painful/burning nipples when pregnant also.

I feel like every week i have a new problem sad

Does this match with your symptoms? X

Hi Thats,

Yes very similar, but the pain eases once I have finished feeding. xx

I had this, pretty sure it was nipple blanching, but I was treated for thrush. Have you tried the nipple shields? I used them all 8 months & never had any supply issues. Hope you feel better soon!!
