Today’s Daily Hormone Horoscope: Monday, August 1, 2011

My HormonologyWhich week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:

Week 1
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: The start of a new month may remind you of how much you still have left to do from the previous month (and the one before that and the one before that…) Luckily, estrogen and testosterone both rise this week and all of next, and they’re lifting your energy, focus and motivation so you can tackle all those leftover to-dos!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You’re doing things faster than you would during other weeks of your cycle due to high estrogen and testosterone. While this is great for cleaning, playing sports, typing and food shopping, this need for speed could be dangerous while driving, exercising and cocktail drinking. So, use your hasty power wisely….

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: During the first two weeks of your cycle, your libido rose along with your testosterone level. This week, you’re experiencing a distinct lack of lust as testosterone nosedives and the libido-quashing hormone progesterone rises. What’s more, if you do end up going for the O either with a pal or on your own, orgasms will be harder to reach and have less intensity than during the first half of your cycle. Now this doesn’t mean sexy fun is totally off the table. Just set your sights a little lower and you’ll still enjoy the feel-good brain chemicals that rush out anytime you get physical!

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Be careful of letting your imagination run away with you today. With estrogen and testosterone on the downswing, you may be tempted to think the worst of anything, for instance, that a little red patch on your elbow means you’re having a bad reaction to a medicine, the electric company will shut off your power if you’re a week late with the payment or that a minor mistake at work may cost you your job. Before jumping to conclusions and freaking yourself out, take a deep breath and consult with a pal or family member who can give you an objective opinion.
