Picture Showing What a Woman's Milk Duct Looks Like

I’m a Woman Who Breastfed, and I Had No Clue This Is What Milk Ducts Looked Like

As someone who has spent a considerable amount of time talking about expressing breast milk, clogged ducts, and everything else in between, I have to say I've given little thought to what my anatomy actually looked like. A clogged duct was something I could feel underneath my skin, but there was no visual attached to the sensation.

Now we have an answer! In a now-viral Tweet that LADBible first covered, user @lemonadead shared an image of milk ducts, which carry milk to the nipple, and wrote, "I just realized I never saw a photo of a female muscle system. This is NOT what I imagined milk ducts to look like." You're not alone! This tweet has amassed almost 42,000 retweets, many from people with similar sentiments. All we have to say is, the female body is freaking incredible!
