“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 One: Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen rises: During the first half of your Week 1, you may have a few doubts about your abilities or appearance. But, as this cycle week goes on, you’ll notice that your self-esteem rises and rises. That’s a result of increasing levels of estrogen. This hormone starts out at its lowest level on Day 1, however, as it climbs, it prompts a greater production of brain chemicals that boost your mood and feelings of self-worth.

Week Two: Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak: Expect your silly side to show today. Even if you’re usually buttoned-up and straight-laced, chances are, you’ll be splitting your sides with laughter, singing out loud in the produce aisle, playing a prank on a friend or channeling your inner child another way. You can credit (blame?) high estrogen for the break in decorum. As this hormone climbs toward its peak, it boosts your mood, impulsiveness and confidence—a combination that makes you want to let loose and have fun.

Week Three: Begins day after ovulation and lasts 8 days
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again: Unlike Week 2 gals, you may find that you’re not as easily inspired to let your silly side show, preferring instead to take a quieter, more reserved path. That’s because a dip in estrogen combined with rising progesterone is reining in the high mood, impulsiveness and confidence you experienced during your previous cycle week and replacing them with a more sedate, measured and wary outlook—which makes you more comfortable blending into the background than grabbing the spotlight.

Week Four: Final 6 days of your cycle (Day 23 to 28 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: You may find it takes more effort to stick to good-for-you goals, such as exercising, eating right and saving money. The problem is that as estrogen drops, research shows it can take your willpower with it, making it soooo much easier to cave in to temptation. However, simply being aware of this fact can help you stay true to your goals since you can steer yourself away from things test your resolve, for example, a cushy couch, delicious-smelling bakery or shopping mall.
