“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, don’t be surprised when you find it difficult to sit still and work on tasks that need to be done. Rising estrogen is pushing you to have fun, chat and go out into the world and explore. The natural compromise? Think of tasks that require travel and interacting with others, such as shopping for tools or visiting a client. 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: Just like any cycle day, a big problem can hit you hard and spur all the usual unpleasant emotions that come with it. However, thanks to high-and-rising estrogen, you have a greater chance of rebounding from the problem faster, coming up with a solution to fix it and even seeing a silver lining in the midst of the pain or frustration. That’s because as estrogen rises, it boosts your mood, resilience, problem-solving abilities and optimism. Find out more by downloading the Hormone Horoscope App.
Week 3: Starts day after ovulation & lasts 8 days
Estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again; progesterone rises throughout: When shopping, keep in mind that you tend to veer toward the traditional and conservative during your Week 3. This holds true for clothes, furniture, paint, you get the picture. This is because rising progesterone and lower levels of estrogen put you in a play-it-safe frame of mind and make you a bit more worried about trying something different or daring.

Week 4: Final 6 days of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: If you’ve got obsessive-compulsive disorder behaviors (OCDs) or are superstitious, chances are, these habits are going to be more pronounced during your premenstrual Week 4. The reason? Researchers suspect it’s due to a drop in serotonin caused by plunging estrogen and/or it may be that these behaviors help you feel more in control during a time when dipping estrogen can make you feel less in control.
