Puberty can make nipples ache in female humans and some


Pregnancy can also cause nipples to feel pressure like

clothespins for long periods of time.

There may also be a disease that has caused this. If the

condition continues without cause like puberty or pregnancy, it may

be cancer and should be checked by a doctor.

The only other option is if you had some sort of physical

accident and hurt your nipple badly. Breast-feeding children may be

enough to harm sensitive people.
