Breasts have been feeling sore around the nipples. What could be the reason for this ?

I am 38. My breasts have been feeling sore around the nipples and my left nipple seems to release colostrum when pressure is applies. I already had three children and can t have any more due to a tubal ligation and a uteral ablation . So why is this happening. Could is be due to nipple stimulation /sucking that occurs during sex ?

Yes,excessive stimulation can sometimes cause this.But pathology needs to be ruled out too.You should see your doctor to rule out a lump and also get your prolactin levels done.The nipple discharge should be examined by a doctor.If you are not breast feeding then this problem shouldnt be there.
