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: Use Week 1 of your cycle for catching up with old friends or family members you haven’t spoken to in a while. Rising estrogen is making you enjoy chatting and connecting with others a lot more than you did in Week 3 and Week 4 of your cycle.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Peaking estrogen and testosterone are upping your desire to push the envelope this week, so you may be tempted to pull an all-nighter, drink excessively, push yourself harder at the gym or do other things that could have negative consequences on your health. Even this warning likely won’t be enough to make you steer clear of dangerous stunts–your high hormones are making you super-confident that you can not only survive whatever you do, you’ll actually be better for it!
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: Break out the self-help book you got months ago and still haven’t read, the macrame project that’s collecting dust in the corner or the guitar you haven’t played since you learned “Freebird”. As estrogen dips and progesterone rises, you’re slowing down and looking inward, which makes self-improvement activities you can do solo more enjoyable.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may be hit with bouts of irritation or feel an odd sense of mania every now and then. What gives? As estrogen plunges, it can trigger blasts of noradrenaline, which is a brain chemical that causes excitement. If you feel a rise in noradrenaline start to kick in (say, your heart starts racing or you get a sudden feeling of irritation or euphoria for no good reason), try to remind yourself it’s just a side effect of plunging estrogen and will pass soon.
