Nipple Shield Users

Do any of you who use a nipple shield pump after each feeding to make sure your breast is emptied? My DS is 6 weeks and I think he drains my breasts effectively (good weight gain, plenty of wet diapers) but I've been doing some reading about the shields and just about everything I find says I should pump after feedings since using a shield can cause you to be more prone to plugged ducts. Just trying to see what everyone else does. I'm just getting over thrush so I definitely don't want to head down the plugged duct road!
