Its a yearly ritual for all women but CIS women either complain about how “it hurts” or “it embarrasses them”.
Today, I had my first mammogram! YAY!…..Another milestone!⚡
As far as pain goes, I suppose that’s a relative thing depending on your life experience. Compared to recovery from surgery…it was a breeze.
As far as my “embarrassment level” goes, there was none. I’m proud of my body!
I laughed and joked with the hospital technician and the women in registration and I dare say they learned a few positive things about trans women and how our bodies work.
Bring on the next challenge! 💣💃🏼
