“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: As your Week 1 goes on, you become more willing to put up with minor annoyances–like a chair that’s a bit too hard or a faucet that drips loudly–than you did in your premenstrual Week 4. Credit for your flexibility goes to rising estrogen, which makes you more patient and upbeat, so you’re less bothered by small problems. 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: Careful, Week 2 gal: You’re more likely to overindulge in alcohol, food, shopping and anything else that gives you pleasure, but could be bad for you. The reason? As estrogen climbs, it gives your brain a bigger euphoric buzz from fun yet naughty stuff, so once you start partaking, it can be hard to stop.

Week 3: Starts day after ovulation & lasts 8 days
Estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again; progesterone rises throughout: People who got used to making you laugh for the past two weeks are going to worry they broke their funny streak when they’re around you. The reason? During Week 1 and Week 2, you were all guffaws as estrogen rose since this hormone triggers a surge of brain chemicals that make you upbeat and more likely to laugh. But, in Week 3, not only does estrogen dip to a lower level, making the giggles farther and fewer between, rising progesterone is also on the scene, making you seem more serious and sedate.

Week 4: Final 6 days of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: You could have the tendency to zero in on so-called “flaws” in your appearance, such as pimple on your chin, cowlick in your hair or stain on your shirt. This is a more common problem when estrogen drops since it can drag down your self-confidence. Truth is, however, most folks don’t notice the flaws you’re obsessing about (unless you point them out over and over), so try to cut yourself some slack and focus on what’s awesome about you today instead.
