Which week are you on in your monthly cycle? Find out what it reveals about what your day has in store:
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Once you’re past the cocooning part of your period, you’re likely going to be doling out words of advice (whether it’s asked for or, more commonly, not) to friends, co-workers, people on Facebook, strangers on Twitter or fellow shoppers on line at the supermarket. As estrogen rises, it’s making you chattier, boosting your confidence and upping your desire to reach out to others. As a result, when you overhear a conversation or read a comment about someone having an issue, you’re pretty sure you have the right answer and are bold enough to share it.
Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation (here’s how to tell when you’re ovulating)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Today’s a great day for deleting old emails, getting rid of unused clothes and hauling away trinkets and doo-dads that clutter up the place. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are making you far less sentimental about holding onto old things that you may or–more likely–may not need some time in the future. Plus, they’re giving you the physical and mental oomph it takes to comb through all the items to decide which go into the delete/discard/donate pile. Want more motivation to nix your junk? Just watch any episode of Hoarders. I swear, after just 60 seconds of that show I’ve usually filled five shopping bags of stuff to donate!
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may start to worry about finances, your job, a relationship you have with a friend or partner or some other issue. The reason is that lower levels of estrogen and testosterone are bringing down the confidence and optimism you enjoyed in Week 2, which made it easier to ignore potential problems. And on top of that, rising progesterone is making you prone to looking inward, so you’re focusing more on issues in your life. To avoid bringing down your day by ruminating on fears you have, try to take one positive step toward fixing a problem (say, checking job listings to see what’s out there or making an overdue call to a pal). Research shows this will make you feel like you have more control over the situation, which reduces your worry about it.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may want to snuggle with your partner, go see a movie with a pal or connect with someone close to you another way. However, plunging estrogen is making you kind of touchy, so if they say something stupid (in that charming way that only folks who know you best and, therefore, feel like they’re allowed to say anything to you can), it could really tick you off. My advice: Instruct your sweetie to stay mum till after you’re done cuddling, tell your pal touchy topics are off-limits for today and inform other folks close to you that it’s your premenstrual Week 4 and, therefore, is not the time to needle you. Trust me, not only will you be happy you gave them a heads up, they will, too.
