    Default pumped what looked like congealed breastmilk

    I just finished a pumping session and I noticed what looked like congealed breastmilk in the breastshield of my breastpump
    I know I had a clooged milk duct yesterday, and I massaged and was able to unclog the milk duct, could this gooey substance be what was in my clogged milk duct?
    It was a rather large clogged duct.
    Thanks

    Yep, that sounds like what it was. It doesn't hurt your milk, in case you were wondering.
    I'm glad you were able to work out the clog!
    Feeling okay otherwise?

    Thanks for the answers, I had a veyr large clog, and it was painful and I was able to work it out, but I never saw this gooey substance before, and I thought that was what was in the clogged duct, but just wanted to make sure.
