“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: During your Week 1, you may be spending more time seeking out social events to attend in the coming days, for instance, Halloween parties, Sunday brunches or art show openings. Why? As estrogen rises throughout this cycle week, it triggers the urge to get out of your home and spend time with other people while having fun. Sounds like a good reason to check out event calendars around town (like Facebook.com/events) right now! Find out more by downloading the Hormone Horoscope App.
Week 2: Day 8 to ovulation (Day 14 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak: People around you better be prepared for you to follow your whims wherever they may take you! When estrogen is high during your Week 2, it boosts your desire for something new while also increasing your impulsiveness—a recipe that spells sudden left turns if there ever was one!

Week 3: Starts day after ovulation & lasts 8 days
Estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again; progesterone rises throughout: Home projects that gathered dust may be on your mind now, for instance, reorganizing the kitchen, cleaning out the garage or building a birdhouse. That’s rising progesterone’s influence. As this hormone climbs throughout your Week 3, it shifts your focus to tasks that help you improve the comfort and usability of your home. Researchers believe it’s because this hormone prompts you to “feather your nest” in case you got pregnant during ovulation. Find out more by downloading the Hormone Horoscope App.
Week 4: Final 6 days of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: No matter what day of the week you’re reading this, it may feel like a Monday—just one of those days that don’t get off the ground or where things don’t go as smoothly as you’d hoped. Truth? Your day probably isn’t any different from other days in your cycle. However, during your premenstrual Week 4, a drop in estrogen can make it feel like things just aren’t going your way because it prompts brain changes that make you focus more on negatives than positives. To keep your mood from going south from all this hormone-fueled negativity, try to balance things out by recalling at least one good thing that’s gone right today.
