It is remarkable that the (mis)use of testosterone attracts vast attention, whereas knowing the effects of female sex hormones (both natural and synthetic) is considered less important. A lack of knowledge regarding the menstrual cycle, hormonal contraception, and pregnancy may result in premature decisions being made about training and recovery interventions in elite female athletes. This professional development explores female-specific physiology relevant for the female athletes and in particular examines the potential effects of the menstrual cycle, hormonal contraception, and pregnancy on performance, injury, and illness.
