“Most girls and women aren’t taught about how the ups and downs of hormones in their monthly cycles will be impacting their moods, energy, romantic feelings, spending habits, sleep quality, food cravings and health all cycle long. This can lead to years of self-doubt, worry, frustration and confusion about why they feel or behave a certain way or why health issues worsen or improve for no apparent reason. So, my mission is to share hormone information with others through Hormonology to ensure that all future generations of girls and women have this knowledge starting with their very first cycle.”

Today’s Hormone Horoscope
Week 1: Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen rises: Day by day throughout your Week 1, you become more comfortable drawing attention to yourself, for example, by piping up in a meeting or dressing up. This is a result of rising estrogen. As the level of this hormone climbs, it revs self-confidence in your skills, talents, intelligence and appearance.

Week 2: Day 8 to ovulation (Day 14 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak: Surprising, but true: Compared to other weeks of your cycle, your breath smells better and your sweat smells more attractive in your Week 2. The reason? High estrogen! When this hormone climbs toward its peak, it improves moisture in your mouth, which helps wash away more odor-causing bacteria, and it prompts changes in the chemical composition of your perspiration to help you attract a mate in time for ovulation at the end of this cycle week.

Week 3: Starts day after ovulation & lasts 8 days
Estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again; progesterone rises throughout: You tend to spend less money during your Week 3 compared to how you were splashing out cash during your Week 2. However, studies shows there are two types of purchases you are still prone to splurging on: food and home goods. As the researchers explain it, this is because rising progesterone is making you hungrier and it’s giving you the urge to “feather your nest” just in case you got pregnant during ovulation.

Week 4: Final 6 days of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: As you enter your premenstrual Week 4, you may notice that you have certain signs or symptoms that indicate that your estrogen and progesterone are now dropping. Some include a dull headache or migraine, nausea or dizziness. Try to pay closer attention to the signs your body is sending you—and you’ll have another way to pinpoint when your premenstrual week begins. Find out more by downloading the Hormone Horoscope App.
