Rebecca Booth, M.D. is a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist and has been practicing medicine for over twenty years. Named one of Louisville, Kentucky’s most cutting edge doctors, she is a senior partner in one of the region’s largest OB/GYN practices, Women First of Louisville.


Dr. Booth is the author of The Venus Week: Discover the Powerful Secret of Your Cycle...At Any Age (Da Capo Lifelong Books, 2008). In The Venus Week, Dr. Booth communicates hormonal changes to women in a way they can understand and empowers them with the knowledge to live well every week of the month. The Venus Week is her metaphor for the one week of the month when women experience a peak in estrogen (the “feel-good hormone”) and testosterone (the “hormone of desire”), resulting in enhanced interactions with the world around them. The book unlocks the secret of this optimal hormonal “recipe”, providing uplifting insights that don’t necessarily end with menopause.

Recognized as a leader in women’s health, Dr. Booth has appeared on The Today Show, CBS.com, and numerous radio and local affiliate television shows to discuss the Venus Week and has been quoted in magazines and newspaper articles including: O: The Oprah Magazine, Shape, Redbook, Seventeen, Natural Health, the Chicago Tribune, and the Dallas Morning News. She has also been published in leading medical journals on topics that include preventative health care for women, menopause and hormonal management.

Dr. Booth lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her husband and her two children. Visit www.thevenusweek.com for more information.
