New Study Urges Women to Undergo Mammograms During Their Menstrual Period

 


Menstrual Cycle May Affect Mammogram Sensitivity and Accuracy

 

If it's getting time for you to get the "boob squeeze," or a mammogram (as the medical community calls it), you'll want to know about the latest research study, just published in last month's issue of Radiology. Researchers urge women who are pre-menopausal, who have routine mammograms, to schedule their screenings during the first week of their menstrual cycle - which is the week that you're having your period.

 

Why?

 

Head over to my newest blog post - Menstrual Cycle May Affect Mammogram Sensitivity and Accuracy to learn out more about why mammograms may be more accurate during the week of a woman's menstrual period. In today's post, you will also learn about the controversy in the medical community about the age of your first screening. Should you be screened at age 40 or 50?
