Purple nipples?

For the past couple of months, my nipples have been a brownish purple. Not the areola, just the nipple. I've found that if I sort of massage it, then it'll go back to normal color, then return to the purple, as if maybe it's a circulation issue. Any idea what's going on here?

Re: Purple nipples?

I've heard that they can change colors due to hormonal balance.

So if your periods were irregular, due to fluxuating hormones, or if you were pregnant that may be the cause.

It could also be that alot of blood is being pushed into them, if they were growing or changing.

If its just the color i wouldn't worry too much about it, but if they start to hurt or feel weird, you may want to get them checked by a doctor.
