“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’re finding it easier to laugh at jokes, funny situations and even your own goofs. Credit for your funnybone goes to rising estrogen. As the level of this hormone climbs throughout the first half of your cycle–your Week 1 and Week 2–it prompts the brain to churn out mood-lifting chemicals that make you feel lighter and more at ease.

Week 2: Day 8 to ovulation (Day 14 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak: Careful of getting too close to casinos, lottery ticket machines and raffles. Research shows you’re more likely to take big financial risks during your Week 2! The reason? When estrogen gets high, it makes you more optimistic, impulsive and easily excited—giving you the feeling that the odds of winning are better than they likely really are.

Week 3: Starts day after ovulation & lasts 8 days
Estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again; progesterone rises throughout: If you notice hunger pangs kick in, do not—and I mean do not—ignore them! Stop what you’re doing and find yourself a healthy snack pronto. Why? During the second half of your cycle, progesterone can make you more sensitive to drops in blood sugar when you haven’t eaten in awhile. And when that happens, it can trigger intense anger or sadness out of the blue. By eating at the first sign of a grumbly tummy, you can sidestep this extreme mood drop and stay even-keeled.

Week 4: Final 6 days of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: When deciding whether or not to take a chance, you’re likely going to think twice (then some more) about whether it’s worth it to risk your money, time, safety, career or effort. The reason is that as estrogen drops, it triggers changes in levels of mood-moderating brain chemicals that make you more pessimistic, wary, anxious and/or cynical–so you feel like the outcome has a greater probability of being bad than good. As a result, you’ll likely avoid gambling, too-good-to-be-true investment plans friends propose and other iffy ventures. Find out more by downloading the Hormone Horoscope App.
