I told my wife how frustrated I am with period tracking apps as a trans woman and she was like "but you're a programmer!" so I guess I have a new project.

@SEGFAULT I don't get physical symptoms like cramping like some trans women do, but I have a couple days a month where my depression and dysphoria flare up, followed by a couple days of rapid facial hair growth, followed by my boobs swelling up. I want to be able to track and predict these changes, and I want a warning that the next couple days might be an emotional challenge.

All the period tracking apps out there are focused on ovulation, fertility, and bleeding. I want to know when I'm going to hate myself.

@nakedambition i certainly get the emotional symptoms, i never considered tracking them... hmm
