i have lots of little goose pimples scattered all around the edge of my areola, a few are actually on there and there are some white dots on my nipples. are these montgomerys tubercles or do they look different to goose bumps?


Meg - February 17

I have exactly the same situation. I read a lot on the net about M/T as they refer to them as the very first sign of pregnancy. I hope they are correct. Should you hear something else please keep me posted. One question: do you feel soreness on them and kind of burning/tingling feelings on your b___sts and sometimes they become very warm. *** Good Luck ***

i have montgomerys tubercles, they appeared during my last pregnancy and have been been there since !


Meg - February 17

Are these montg. tubercles "THE SIGN" of pregnancy, or can be something else. I'm on TTC for 4 years and for the first time in my life I have these montgomery tubercles and b___sts soreness, itchiness and blue veins especially around aureolas. What do you think Saralee???


saralee - February 17

i think that if you never had them before it must be a sign, along with the tender b___sts the soreness. for me the blue veins were a definite sign in both my pregnancies. fingers crossed for you

Yes I touched mines too and the white part comes out like a pimple. Can you get these bumps if you are not pregnant?

I also have the bumps on my areaola but I also had a m/c in march, so I cannot recall if they disappeared after my m/c or are new bumps for a new pregnancy.

basically i did a search and a few sites said when you started puberty or pregnant u can have white bumps on ur aerola... and don't pinch them or pop them cuz they are sensitive and u can have an infection.. however.. i also want to say that if u had to search hard and pinch hard to 'pop' and to see those white bumps then maybe they're not montgomery's tubercles and therefore that may not be a sign of pregnancy (some of ya wanna be preggo so bad) not to offend anyone.. jsut don't want yall girls to get too worried and all that.. outez

I had them starting last month when the dr put me on progesterone, and I was convicend I was PG, but I wasn't. The #1 cause of it is pregnancy, but it also can be a hormonal imbalance, which is what i htink I had last month. Good luck!

I have them because of high doses of birth control. Check your BC because this too can cause these bumps!!!


stephy - May 17
