Mammograms... How painful are they?

I'm going for my first mammogram and am wondering if it is painful or just a little uncomfortable.

  • i have had one
    maybe i was lucky with a great woman who did it
    andmaybe i went at great time of month
    but not painful at all

    idid NOT LOOK!! do not look, i think seeing your boobies flatten like pancakes will make it hurt

    so do not look, relax body to allow as much of boob and skin around to go into thing, talk about everyday stuff with woman doing test, try not to "be there" and it iwll will over before you know it

  • Not painful. But sucky. I mean, they squish your boobies down pretty good.
