Need mammographer familar with sexual trauma in Baltimore
August 23, 2013 9:15 AM Subscribe
I have to get mammograms every 6 months or so. Due to past sexual trauma, I get badly triggered and end up dissociating (not that big of a deal) then freaking out. Have developed some ways of making this all bearable (take the full day off work, take a friend who has specific instructions about what to do when, etc.). My therapist suggested I try to find a mammogram office that is used to dealing with this type of issue and may have other suggestions and be willing to work with me on making it less stressful.

I've found a very, very few places not near Baltimore that offer services for survivors for pelvic exams but only one pop article that wasn't particularly good on mamms.
