HORMONOLOGY TIP: Avoid scheduling scary stuff in your premenstrual Week 4!

My HormonologyHave to head to the dentist? Get a surgical procedure? Take a test? Try to avoid having these or other potentially frightening events fall during your premenstrual Week 4 if you can.

Can’t avoid having something scary fall during your Week 4? Then keep in mind that if dread and worry start to rise, they’re just natural side effects of plunging estrogen.
