I have bumps on my areola that look like Montgomery glands but sometimes they are more noticeable than other times. When they are noticeable they are big or they look like little pimples. I have only noticed them the last 1.5 weeks.

It's common for Montgomery glands to be more noticeable than at other times. They can look like pimples. Most likely they are normal, although you could see your doctor to be sure.

They won't have anything to do with your getting pregnant. Best wishes.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
