“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 One: Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen rises: As your Week 1 goes on, you’ll likely discover you’re putting more time into your hair, outfit, makeup or other facet of your appearance—even if you prefer to be valued for your intelligence, talents or skills. That’s a side effect of rising estrogen, which makes you more concerned about how you look as a way to help you find a mate in time for ovulation (this hormone can be a bit one-track-minded sometimes). But, you can use this effect to take a new profile pic for your LinkedIn page, shoot a new vlog or make a great first impression at a networking event before you wow’em with your brains.

Week Two: Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak: If there was ever a time to try to remember where you misplaced an item, the name of an old classmate from school or the ingredients to your grandmother’s secret tomato sauce recipe, it’s during your Week 2. Thanks to high estrogen, your recall is the best it’ll be all cycle long! Find out more by downloading the Hormone Horoscope App.
Week Three: Begins day after ovulation and lasts 8 days
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again: Have a big decision to make, such as whether to get a roommate or change jobs? The best days of your cycle to make it are during the second half of your Week 3. On these days, the combination of rising estrogen and progesterone make you level-headed and realistic about the outcome—helping you see both the benefits and challenges. By contrast, during the first half of your cycle, estrogen rising by itself can make you a bit too optimistic—so you expect an outcome that’s better than it might be. And during your premenstrual week, plunging estrogen can make you a bit too pessmistic—so you expect an outcome that’s worse than it might be. Find out more by downloading the Hormone Horoscope App.
Week Four: Final 6 days of your cycle (Day 23 to 28 in a 28-day cycle)
Estrogen and progesterone plunge: If you have a chronic condition, for example, allergies, asthma, eczema or IBS, there’s a chance it may flare up or worsen during your premenstrual week due to plunging estrogen. If this happens regularly to you, talk with your healthcare provider and ask if your treatments can be tailored around your cycle. Find out more by downloading the Hormone Horoscope App.
