Today’s Hormone Horoscope – Day 2

You’re likely experiencing some of your heaviest menstrual bleeding today. Because heavy bleeding can drag down your body’s level of iron, this can sap your physical and mental energy, making you want to cocoon at home or a favorite relaxing spot, like the library or park.

Despite this, you may notice that compared to the past few days, the sun is shining a little more brightly, birds are singing a little more sweetly and your brother isn’t being a total pain in the neck. That’s rising estrogen’s influence. With the level of this hormone climbing slightly, it boosts your mood and outlook, making everything seem just a teeny tiny bit better. Oh, you may still get ticked off if someone eats the last cookie or you misplace your cell phone. But, this hormone is helping you get over problems faster and restore you to a more positive frame of mind.

The small rise in this hormone is also making it a smidge easier to recall dates, names and other facts as it sharpens your memory.

Luckily, you won’t need any help remembering how to spend your cash. You’re in the mood to treat yourself to silly, totally unnecessary items–like nail polish or a cupcake with rainbow sprinkles–as a way to combat period-related aches and fatigue.

You may notice it’s easier to fall asleep or you’re sleeping more soundly tonight. Thanks goes to rising estrogen, which helps churn out more brain chemicals that promote high-quality zzz’s.

If menstrual cramps are bugging you, try soaking a washcloth in warm (not hot) water and laying it on your lower abdomen. Researchers say warmth helps block pain signals as well as relax spasming uterine muscles that are behind menstrual cramp pain.

Fun fact

Research shows that during your period you excel at projects requiring spatial skills (the kind that allow you to rotate images in your head, say, when planning a new bedroom layout or putting together a model airplane). Why? When estrogen is low, it allows your testosterone to dominate–and this is a hormone that improves your spatial skill ability.

You’ll likely be more passionate about ideas, a big project, love interest, hobby or even just an inspiring photo you see today due to rising estrogen, which makes you more easily excited. And because you’re in a talkative mood, you’re more than happy to share the details of your passion with friends, family and anyone within a 25-foot radius. It’ll probably be pretty easy for others to pick up on your enthusiasm: Rising estrogen has you speaking a bit louder, using more dramatic gestures and is making you appear more energetic overall.

This hormone is also boosting brain skills that make learning easier. You’re absorbing and comprehending new information super-fast, which makes it a great day to try a new software program, watch a video tutorial or figure out complex instructions.

Getting dressed for your day or a fabulous night out is more fun since your self-confidence is climbing high, so experiment with a new outfit or hairstyle. You may also spontaneously dole out compliments to friends, family and even strangers on their appearance thanks to elevated estrogen, which is boosting your mood and giving you the urge to spread the good feelings to others.

Treat yourself to food or beverages that have a complex taste or unusual ingredients. Rising estrogen is sharpening your senses of taste and smell, so you’re better at detecting and appreciating subtle flavors all through the end of your Week 2.

Fun fact

Get moody, irritable or blue during your premenstrual week (the week leading up to your period)? Research shows that regular aerobic exercise, such as jogging, biking or swimming, can reduce these bothersome premenstrual symptoms! It may be because it rebalances out-of-kilter hormones and/or triggers a higher production of brain chemicals that boost mood. And, good news, the first half of your cycle is a great time to start a new exercise regimen–or recommit yourself to an old one–since rising estrogen is pumping you full of pep and motivation!

Today’s Hormone Horoscope

Your body’s level of sedating progesterone is rising higher and higher throughout your Week 3, which can make you more prone to zoning out and wishing you could curl up for a much-needed nap anywhere you can–under your desk, on the bus ride home, in the produce aisle nestled up to the nectarines. In fact, if someone says something super-annoying to you or that goes against everything you stand for, you might just decide to stay mum and conserve what little energy you have rather than waste your wee bit of pep trying to prove your point.
While your desire for romance is on the low side, cuties who are most likely to win you over are sensitive, cooperative, caring types who wouldn’t bat an eye if you demanded their dessert to fulfill your progesterone-fueled food cravings.

Chances are, you’re going to be bothered by constipation, bloat and sore breasts, which are totally normal, albeit annoying, side effects of rising progesterone.

You may also find this hormone is making your brain a bit foggy and you’re a tad forgetful. If you’ve got to work on an important project or prepare for a big test, try spending a few minutes taking a brisk walk, listening to music with a fast beat or playing a fast-paced, high-pressure video game. These are all study-proven ways to shake off brain fog and boost alertness fast.

Steer clear of scary movies and alarming news stories that are accompanied by graphic photos. Research shows that during the second half of your cycle, progesterone makes frightening images stick in your memory banks longer.

Fun fact

You may have more negative dreams during your Week 3 and Week 4 because your hormones make you more prone to the blues, stress or worry on these days. To up your odds of having dreams that are more positive, try placing a bowl of fragrant potpourri by your bedside (far out of reach of curious pets and young siblings) or dabbing on your favorite essential oil before turning in. Research shows that breathing in pleasant aromas as you sleep makes you more likely to have dreams with happier storylines.
