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: Week 1 may start off on a quiet note with the fatiguing effects of menstruating keeping you a bit mum. However, as your Week 1 goes on, you’ll notice you’re more charming and flirtatious with other folks. That’s rising estrogen’s influence. The higher this hormone climbs throughout this week and next week of your cycle, the more it pushes you to reach out to others, be friendly, joke around and connect positively in other ways.
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: Some folks may see you as more fun, others may think you’re a bit of a loudmouth. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are making you bold, impulsive and more vocal–a combination that can bring out your humorous side, making you the life of the party, or bring out your demanding side, (say, when asking for a better seat at a restaurant), making you seem a bit pushy.
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: The company of close friends and family members brings you more comfort than meeting new folks or hanging around acquaintances you don’t know well. That’s rising progesterone’s influence. Research shows that as the level of this hormone climbs, it makes you happier when spending time with people you trust and can be yourself around.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You can be a bit more skeptical today. Even when facts are presented to you in a logical, coherent argument, you may still think what you’re hearing or reading can’t be true. That’s plunging estrogen’s fault. As levels of this hormone decline, it creates certain changes in brain chemicals that make you more cynical. So, it takes more to convince you.
