My boyfriend was biting and sucking my nipples so hard that they're now bleeding, swollen, bruised, and look really horrible. How long will this take to heal?

Ouch - that sounds really painful! Even if it turns you on, you might want to ask your boyfriend to be a bit more gentle with you.

How To Speed Up The Healing Process of Your Nipples
Think of nipples like lips, and what happens if you lick them too much. They get dry and flaky and sore. The same thing happens to your nipples - there's something in saliva that has this effect, so to stop the skin cracking and bleeding, I'd suggest using Vaseline or some other intense moisturiser.

It's hard to say how long they'll take to heal, as I don't know quite how rough your boyfriend was with you, but if you use Vaseline on your nipples so that they're constantly moisturised, the healing process should be much quicker. I reckon you'll be okay in about a week, if they're as bad as you say!

What Should I Do While I'm Waiting For Them To Heal?
In the mean time, don't let him use his mouth on your nipples. If you get caught up in the heat of the moment and he does, wash your breasts with water afterwards to get the saliva off them (don't use soap, as that'll make them even more prone to cracking).

Having a quick wash after sex is usually a good idea anyway, so when you pop to the bathroom to freshen up, get into the habit of washing your breasts as well as the more obvious places!

Well it depends on if the nipples were cleaned. A human mouth is very dirty, so make sure to clean them if not already, but if you take good care of the bleeding it should heal in a matter of 2 to 3 weeks.
