“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.”

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’re likely going to be adding more salt, sugar, tabasco sauce and other flavorings to your food and beverages during your Week 3. Why? Research shows your taste buds get a bit duller as progesterone rises, which prompts you to turn to more seasonings to get a satisfying taste.

Week 4: Final 6 days of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: You tend to be less mentally flexible during your premenstrual Week 4 than during other cycle weeks, which can make you a bit stubborn about trying a new concept or method that someone else proposes. Instead of giving in to your hormonal reaction to stick to the same old thing, consider trying the other person’s idea. You may be surprised by how much better it works!
