I had my first mammogram today.  :)

I'm supposed to get the results back in two weeks, and I will be scheduled for another test in three years.

A mammogram is the only time my boobs are big. Crepe thin, of course, but they actually cover some area.

@Devlyn
Dear Devlyn:
I am very glad that you got your very first mammogram test...
... I trust that the results of your test will be "negative" ...

My best advice is to never wait too long to get a Mammogram test.
   I have had had 3 Mammograms and will always want them at least every three years or more often if my doctor wants me to have them.

Here is my Mammogram experience that resulted in me having a breast biopsy several years ago to help my doctor determine the status of a lump that I felt.

Do lots of frequent self-checks and be vigilant.   
Breast issues are not contingent on breast size... large or small.

HUGS,
Danielle

I have had a number of mamograms. It is just another preventive health procedure that we do.

It is necessary and it really doesn't hurt that much, especially with the newer mamogram machines.

Hi Devlyn

Congratulations to your first mammogram!
I trust the results will be fine, hopefully you are not too nervous.

Best wishes

Ur kidding re doesn’t hurt that much? Flipping painful but an absolute necessity!

Pammie, it appears that we have two different experiences. Everybody has their own pain threshold, so we can not expect everyone to have the same expectations.   :P

Indeed! I have had probably 4 hrs laser on my face, 15 tattoo work so I already know I have a high pain threshold but I still didn’t find the mammogram any fun

My experience was that of a firm squeeze, it never reached a "pain level". There's only a pair of 36B's being squeezed, so that might be an influence, I don't know.  :)

I think I was probably only 36A at the time and was surprised just how painful it was - maybe because there wasn’t a lot of boob to use

That is good news.

Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.
