A little statistical nipple question, but I'm genuinely curious...

Ok, so this is something I've wondered about in the back of my mind for...literally decades, and I don't know why it never occurred to me to just ask...


To everyone out there who's ever gone through any testosterone-driven development...(So like, both AMABs like me who went through testosterone puberty as a teenager, but also transmascs who have been on T for awhile, regardless of whether or not you ever went through an estrogen-puberty)...


Did you ever get any nipple soreness/discomfort during your testosterone-based development? (regardless of whether it was initial puberty or HRT)


The reason I wonder is: While I've always heard about nipple soreness being a common symptom of estrogen-based development, I've never heard anything about whether or not it's ever a thing in testosterone-based development too, and if so, how common it might be.


As for me (an AMAB, post-T-puberty, trans gal), I did get nipple soreness during my original testosterone puberty as a teenager (probably no huge surprise considering my question!)

I didn't.  I get it now, though, and I take that as a sign that the E is working.

I don't recall any nipple pain during puberty version one. I dont think most men do also. Version two is another story. I'm 18 months into hormones. The pain comes and gos, and had since 4 months of hormones. 


I will say this its worth it. You the hormones are doing there thing, and if you are one of the lucky ones. They become sensitive in a good way. I learned that the other day with a hookup. While I knew they thy were sensitive. Its a lot different when some one else is enjoying them, and you get a response and result yoy wernt expecting.

In P1 I did not have soreness per se, but had a scare in a sense when I did produce colostrum a few times a day.  It was a definite ambivalent type of experience, because I had this little almost hopeful part I would change to a girl and have boobs, but fear that I might try and be fixed by a doctor if anyone found out.  Only a tiny bit of discomfort but not pain like I would get at 6 months on HRT. P2  Then is when things really cut loose.  The idea of a door, a child or an animal hitting my chest in those days were not fun.

One thing I remember vividly was the total lack of any sensation at all. My T driven nipples were like nothing. Pinch, tear (don't ask), catch and cut ..... nothing. Awkward when you are asked didn't you notice ? No just the blood <shrugs>.

3 months into HRT and whoa Nellie what the heck is this. Sensitivity overload along with the usual soreness. Usually the day after I put a new patch on.

I don't think i even really noticed my nipples until some time on HRT.  I loved the pain, not because i'm a masochist, but i knew my girls were growing.  The new sensations related to my breasts are a welcome affirmation of my womanhood.

      IDK, Sakura.  I never liked it when I was on interview boards if an applicant gave too much personal info.  You'd be amazed at the stuff people would admit ("cop") to without needing to do so.   I think a good approach is to provide whatever info you do have, verbally if you have to, and tell them you're trying to get documentation, but that there are personal reasons it may be difficult.  Give them whatever you can give them, like the names of at least a couple of prior employers.  If your memory is such that you can't do that, I'm not sure how many employers are going to accept that an applicant simply can't recall their work history, without medical proof.  Again, U.S. laws prohibit them from asking about your medical history.   I am not expert enough on these issues that offer better advice than that.  You need to consult with employment experts, who may have better solutions.   Carolyn Marie

      There is some really helpful information to unpackage there. I think I'm going to try building my cv again from scratch and see how much information I have, then look into what resources are available in my area (if any).   Thank you both so much.   May I follow up with a few more questions, if you don't mind?   Do you believe it would be plausible to start a fresh cv citing that I have prior employment history within x line of work, that I'm not able to reveal due to a former abuser?  Obviously not an approach I want to use, but a significant chunk of my work history and certifications are out of my reach.   What would be the best way to go about explaining a seemingly late start in employment history if I went to an employer over here on a trial or volunteer basis to get experience to start my cv fresh, deliberately omiting my prior employment history and qualifications?   (sorry this seems a little vague but part of my former employment is very identifying, despite not being able to recall the employer well)

      @SheenaTHave you thought about perhaps a necklace that would hide well enough under your shirts, or perhaps a skin-toned polish on your toenails? I did that for a while before my wife and I separated.

      I quite imagine they would suit you well. Go for it.

      Used to be, I only saw shades of black, gray, tan, some red. Since realizing who I really am, I've discovered so many new colors, I need my daughter's help figuring out what goes with what. Never paid purple any mind, except when my older daughter wanted that for her bedroom walls. Now I'm sitting here wearing a lavender skirt. Heavenly.
