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
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: I’m the first to admit that I love it when my estrogen rises thanks to the good mood, sharper memory and other goodies it brings. However, when this hormone first starts to rise in Week 1 after falling so far in Week 4, you could end up feeling a few side effects as your body readjusts, including loose stool, frequent urination, headaches, acne, flare-ups of chronic health problems, dizziness and/or a racing heartbeat. Luckily, if you’re bothered by any of these symptoms, they usually start to subside by the middle of Week 1 so you can then enjoy all the fun benefits this rising hormone brings.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Want to catch the eye of a certain cutie or pique your current sweetie’s interest? Skip the perfume and sidle up close to the person you want to notice you. High estrogen is making your body churn out lots of pheromones–scentless chemicals in your sweat that researchers say attract hotties to you like a magnet by sending the message that you’re approaching your fertile days.
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: New research shows that rising progesterone makes you more prone to emotional eating during this week of your cycle, which means you’re likely to turn to food when stressed, anxious or blue. If you’re watching your weight or your health, try to have stress-busters, tension-tamers and/or mood-boosters ready to use as an alternative.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Money issues may be on your mind today as plunging estrogen lowers your brain’s level of confidence-boosting chemicals. As a result, you may be inspired to clip coupons, update your résumé or investigate new ways to rake in cash, for instance, starting a side business or making money from YouTube videos.
