In the episode, where she talks to Scandal actress Katie Lowes, Kristen admits she's had mastitis three times and been on strong medication twice.

Mastitis is basically plugged milk ducts that cause painful inflammation and even infection. It can often occur when breasts aren't emptied when your child stops breastfeeding - and that's what happened to Kristen when she weaned her child.

She explains, "The third time I had it, I was in Atlanta. We couldn't call a doctor and this was right after the baby stopped nursing. So I said to my husband you need to suck this out."


She added, "We could talk about it. You could be weird about it. Or you could just go ahead and nurse. And he pulled it out!"

She goes on to explain, "He had a cup next to him. He was pulling out and then spitting it into this cup and I have never been more in love!"
