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

Week 1
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen and testosterone rise

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If it’s the first half of your Week 1, you’ll probably have a little residual Week 4-like feelings: you may be tired, a bit blue or uninterested in socializing. That’s because, even though estrogen and testosterone are on the rise, in the first few days of your cycle they’re still at low levels and may not be high enough yet for their awesomey goodness to kick in. But there’s a lot to look forward to! That’s because by the second half of your Week 1, estrogen and testosterone have risen to a point where you’re fully enjoying the bump in energy, mental clarity, focus, mood and desire to socialize these two hormones are giving you!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Thoughts are more likely to become actions today as high estrogen and testosterone make you easily excited by great ideas and motivated to get a few accomplishments under your belt!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Unlike Week 2 gals, it’s easy to lose momentum today, especially if you sit down in your favorite comfy chair or start watching TV or playing video games. The problem is that rising progesterone is slowing you down and lower levels of estrogen and testosterone translate into less energy and excitement. If you have a project you need to work on, avoid your “sloth triggers” (the activities that slow you down) and rebuild momentum by reminding yourself why this task is important and what the rewards will be when you’re done!

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may end up kicking yourself for not thinking up a great comeback fast enough to someone who ticked you off. But, who can blame you? As estrogen and testosterone plunge, it fogs up your thinking and dampens your memory, which makes it harder to come up with witty retorts.
