Anyone know if mammograms are okay during pregnancy?

Both my breasts started leaking blood again last night, I know it's not rusty pipe syndrome, the colour is way too bright and the amount was much more than I normally leak, and now my right breast is very tender.

I have had problems with ruptured breast cysts in the past, which was solved by not wearing bras, but I have bern wearing them again since being pregnant due to the weight of my breasts.

I know what the doctor would normally say, because, well, been there, done that, but I am not sure what the case will be this time.

Anyone had experience with this before?

I believe it is OK to have one during pregnancy, I think the radiation is fairly low but they'll probably cover your belly with the lead shield to be extra safe.
