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
Estrogen and testosterone rise
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Here’s something interesting about your Week 1: Researchers say your ability to read a map, put together a bookshelf and do other tasks that require spatial skills (the kind needed to picture images in your head and move them around) improve during this week of your cycle. As they explain it, since estrogen is low, it allows your testosterone to shine through–and that’s key since testosterone is a hormone that sharpens the brain’s spatial abilities.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: It’ll be difficult to avoid racy thoughts today, for instance, when spying cuties on your commute, thinking about an upcoming date or simply looking at a plate of cheese fries. That’s because high testosterone is revving your libido and making you crave intimate fun. And, even better news for you: If you do end up in bed with your honey or you decide to fly solo, high testosterone is giving you more intense and longer-lasting orgasms! So enjoy!
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Unlike Week 2 gals, your interest in climbing between the sheets with your sweetie wanes during your Week 3 due to dropping levels of testosterone, which dampens your libido. However, you’ll still enjoy cuddling, holding hands and nuzzling thanks to rising progesterone, which is a hormone that makes you want to bond with special people in your life.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If you feel blue or cranky today, try to take a nap or at least sit quietly with your eyes closed for a few minutes. Studies show that one common culprit behind premenstrual sadness and irritability is a lack of deep sleep caused by plunging estrogen. By giving yourself a little rest-time, researchers say you not only restore your pep, you balance your mood.
