What the Yuck: What's wrong with my nipples?

Too embarrassed to ask your doctor about sex, body quirks, or the latest celeb health fad? In a regular feature and a new book, "What the Yuck?!," Health magazine medical editor Dr. Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send 'em to Dr. Raj at whattheyuck@health.com.

Q: My nipples point in different directions - what's wrong with them?

A: Nothing at all. Many of us have breasts that are slightly different from each other (just as our eyes or feet, say, may not be exactly the same size).

See your doctor if your bidirectional nipples are a new development or are accompanied by pain or a dramatic change in breast size; otherwise, there's no need to worry about them.

    Physiologically, if they function when needed there's no problem. However, they may prove embarrassing in the bedroom. And if that's your worry, there are "medical specialists" who can align those puppies real good!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
    something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Thanks!
