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: Estrogen that rises all throughout your Week 1 boosts brain chemicals that put you in a good mood. However, this doesn’t mean you’re going to be grinning from ear to ear all day and laughing in the face of all that life throws at you. If bad stuff happens—for instance, you stub your toe, get hit with an unexpected bank fee or your significant other still hasn’t figured out that smelly socks go in the hamper, not on your side of the bed—then naturally annoyed feelings will arise. However, rising estrogen will help you bounce back from these irritations faster than if you were in the second half of your cycle when plunging estrogen makes negative feelings linger a little longer.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re more likely to get your hands dirty today, for instance, by digging a garden, painting a chair or cleaning the gross stuff out of the bathtub drain. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are making you less squeamish about getting a little goo on your paws and more interested in simply getting a task done no matter how filthy you get.
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: Sad news or negative events may make you weepier or more upset today than you would have been during the first half of your cycle. Why? Lower levels of estrogen and rising progesterone are amping up your emotional side and making your more apt to empathize with others.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: As estrogen plunges in your premenstrual Week 4, it can trigger a wide array of symptoms, such as anxiety, the blues, pain, headaches and bouts of dizziness. As a result, you may think you’re coming down with a cold or you may even assume that a more serious health problem is cropping up.
