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: You may put a little more time into things you do today, for example, instead of just painting your toenails, you may also add a flower or other design. Instead of just tweaking a website, you may end up redesigning the whole thing. Credit for the extra effort goes to rising estrogen, which gives you more energy and pumps up your excitement about whatever task you’re doing.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Yesterday one of my dogs got caught up in my laptop wire as he was racing by and it went crashing to the ground and broke. And I thought, “Thank goodness this happened in my Week 2!” Oh sure, at first I got steamed. But, pretty soon, I rebounded and, knowing I have multiple deadlines for articles and Hormone Horoscopes to write, I thought of a backup plan: I commandeered my husband’s laptop, downloaded all the programs I needed that weren’t on his computer, grabbed my back-up drive that (thankfully!) I’d actually backed up just a week ago and got back to work. I bring this up because if something horrible and unexpected happens to you today, chances are that, once you cool off, high estrogen and testosterone will boost your optimism and make you more flexible so you can come up with a back-up plan stat.
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: In Week 2 of your cycle, you could get away with staying up late, skipping meals, eating the wrong foods and doing other not-so-healthy habits because high estrogen and testosterone made your body more resilient no matter what you threw at it. Now during your Week 3 it’s time to baby your body and return to healthy habits, such as getting to bed on time, eating regularly throughout the day and eating foods that don’t upset your stomach. That’s because lower levels of estrogen coupled with rising progesterone are making you more easily tired out, more prone to having your blood sugar plunge when you go too long without food, more likely to be constipated or have an upset stomach and are making your body more sensitive in general.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Unlike Week 2 gals, if something unexpected goes wrong, chances are, it will take you far longer to rebound and start working on a Plan B. That’s because plunging estrogen is making you more easily irritated, more prone to grousing about the problem and pessimistic that the situation can be fixed.
