How It Works
The Hormone Horoscope App Pro charts your monthly menstrual cycle and gives you a daily Hormone Horoscope, which is a forecast that tells you what your mood, energy, crushes, spending habits, sleep and more will be based on the levels of your hormones for each day.
Created by Hormonology founder and women’s health journalist Gabrielle Lichterman, this app is based on hundreds of scientific studies that show how your cycling hormones (estrogen, testosterone and progesterone) impact you in key ways, including emotions, energy, romantic attraction and impulsiveness. Because your hormones repeat the same up-and-down pattern month after month, the effects your hormones have on you also repeat the same way month after month, making your moods, energy and more easy to predict.
- On Day 7 of your monthly cycle: Rising estrogen makes you more upbeat, energetic, confident, adventurous and creative–making this a great day to tackle a big task, take a trip or brainstorm.
- On Day 18: Rising progesterone saps your pep and makes you quieter and more cautious–making you prefer low-key activities close to home.
- On Day 24: Plunging estrogen can cause a bit of moodiness and irritability–but, you’re also burning up to 30% more fat when you exercise.
