Does areolas go back to normal when you stop breastfeeding ?

my 2 areolas are not the same size, one is bigger, and sometimes when i look at it i find it getting larger(only one of them) and i hate when it gets larger. the thing is i heard that when women are pregnant the areolas get bigger and darker, so im more scared. if the areola is 3 cm wide now, how bigger can they get??? do they double in size??!!!, ! or just get a little larger? and what after breastfeeding stop...normal size again ????

What is your age. When did you give birth. Usually during pregnancy and breast feeding due to hormones the areola and nipple enlarge in sizes. There may be some difference in both sides. Nothing to worry. Continue breast feeding if you are. If you suspect, do get a Pregnancy Test.
