Yes, but...: As the beings of biological automation, our body is constantly changing, adjusting so to maintain a homeostasis within a reasonable "normal range" but with spurts of ups & downs to effectively, hopefully successfully handle a wide range of relationships to achieve comfort & control for survival, growth, & continuation. So, all hormones are constantly fluctuating for the described need of living.
