I turned 40 years old last July and my OB/GYN had scheduled my first mammogram for that summer. I didn't go. A part of me was pretty resistant to the procedure for a number of reasons. I knew it would be unpleasant, I was afraid of what could happen, I wanted to remain blissfully naïve, and also I simply didn't prioritize it in my planner.
After feeling some sensitivity in my breasts, I felt my body telling me it was time. So I scheduled my appointment and finally got it done. I learned a few things and want to share with you what you might expect, if you're like me and unsure if you're ready to take that step
