Why are my nipples purple?

My nipples are purple until they become hard, then they go back to normal. I just had my period and I know it's not because I'm pregnant, because I hadn't had sex since a couple weeks before my period. This really concerns me; I've never had this problem before. Should I be concerned?

Was your period normal?  A couple of weeks before your period is actually your most fertile time.  You might want to take a home pregnancy test.

Well I am pregnant now and that does change the color, but I do remember having darker nipples around the time of my periods. I think it has something to do with an increase of blood flow or hormones. My nipples were always really sore when I had my period too. So maybe we r just some of the women who have weird period symptoms....lol...!

Not weird.  My nipples do the same thing...turn darker when it's time for my period.  So, I'd say it must be normal...   :-)
