I am EP and I am in quite a bit of pain the past few days. I am using the standard size flanges that came with my medla pump but I think I need a different size. I'm just not sure if I need smaller or bigger.
I have fairly small breasts so i would think that I need a smaller size but with the standard size part of my nipple rubs a side. Also, a small part of the areola is brought into the flange each time. I now have a nice raised sore ring of tissue around the nipple. That is what hurts the most!
Should any of the areola be pulled into it when I pump? Any advice on smaller or bigger?
Thanks so much!
