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: You know how when you wake up in the morning, a problem you’d been struggling with the night before suddenly seems easier to solve? That’s likely how it will be in your Week 1: You may suddenly come up with the perfect solution to a problem you’d been dealing with in your premenstrual Week 4 that you just couldn’t fix. Why? Like a good night’s sleep, rising estrogen and testosterone re-energize your brain, make you a bit more optimistic and let you see connections between facts and figures that you missed before.
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Watch your wallet, Week 2 gal! You’re more easily swayed to spend today by irresponsible pals, enthusiastic salespeople, a killer sale or, really, just a change in the wind. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone make you easily excited and super-impulsive, plus they’re boosting your optimism that you’ll be able to find a way to pay the bill somehow. My advice? If you’re on a budget, do all the window shopping you want, but save purchases for Week 3 when lower levels of these two hormones combined with thrifty progesterone makes it easier to determine what’s really worth spending all your hard-earned cash on.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: It might be difficult to donate, recycle or throw away items you don’t need, but which have sentimental value. Why? As progesterone rises, it brings out your emotional side, making you cherish the memories of each stuffed toy, old greeting card and t-shirt you own.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Try to avoid or limit your time in places that have lots of flashing movement, are brightly lit, crowded, loud, uncomfortable and/or have strong scents, like a mall, casino or virtually anywhere in NYC. Plunging estrogen makes you more sensitive to light, noise, physical discomfort and smells, which can end up irritating you.
