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
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: As your Week 1 and Week 2 go on, you may be a tad too trusting of folks, for instance, you may think a salesperson wouldn’t lie about a product’s quality or that a hottie you meet at a party looks too trustworthy to ever lie about their job, interests or relationship status. The reason for your overconfidence in others is that rising estrogen is boosting your mood and optimism, which makes you more likely to see only the good in them and want to believe what you hear. What’s more, if you have your period, menstrual cramps are triggering the production of oxytocin–a hormone known to actually boost your level of trust in others. My advice? During your Week 1 and Week 2, try to size up folks with a more critical eye so you’re not taken for a ride.
Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation (here’s how to tell when you’re ovulating)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re absorbing new information like a sponge today thanks to high estrogen and testosterone, which sharpen your memory and comprehension skills. So, use this weekend to master a new type of software program you’ve been meaning to try, attend a lecture, sign up for a fun class, attend a webinar or do something else that fills your head with new knowledge!
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Unlike Week 2 gals, you may find yourself reading the same line over and over till you finally get its meaning, directions may seem a bit confusing at first and you may find it difficult to pay attention to hum-drum details without falling fast asleep. That’s due to lower levels of estrogen and testosterone combined with a rise in sedating progesterone–a hormonal combination that can cause a bit of mental fatigue and fogginess. If you’ve got to learn new information today, first try clearing away the cobwebs in your brain by going for a brisk walk, listening to up-tempo music or doing something fun, like online shopping, which can all boost alertness.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may experience crossed signals today resulting in a miscommunication or misunderstanding with someone, for instance, you may mistake something a potential love interest writes in an email as an indication that this person isn’t interested in dating or you may suspect that a friend’s excuse about cancelling on a brunch date is a fib when it’s really true. The problem is that plunging estrogen is making you a tad cynical by bringing down feel-good chemicals in the brain. Try to keep an open mind and be patient today to override your tendency to doubt someone unnecessarily.
