I'm pregnant or breast-feeding and due for a test. Should I wait?
If you are pregnant, you should not undergo a mammogram because of possible danger to the fetus. If your gynecologist or obstetrician feels it is important to have a breast screening test during your pregnancy, a breast ultrasound will be ordered.
If you are breastfeeding, your tissues may appear more dense than usual, making it harder for the radiologist to interpret the results.
I have a breast implant. Can I still get a mammogram?
While it is safe to have a mammogram when you have a breast implant, be sure to tell the technologist before the procedure since the machine may require special adjustment for the best possible images.
