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: Rising estrogen boosts your optimism all throughout your Week 1, which can be good (for instance, it can motivate you to apply for a new job), but can also be bad (for example, you could be convinced that you can fit into a tight parking spot when there’s no possible way). So, when making decisions based on the rosy outcome you expect, take a moment to consider any possible downsides.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may feel like telling a dirty joke, spilling a secret or breaking a rule today. Why? High estrogen and testosterone ratchet up brain chemicals that give you a euphoric zing when you do something that’s a little naughty!
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: You’ll likely be bothered by constipation today due to rising progesterone. This is especially true if you have a diet high in meat or processed foods and low in fiber and water. To get things moving along, try consuming more foods rich in insoluble fiber (such as whole grains, nuts, seeds and avocado), which help push stool through the intestines, or eat prunes, olive oil or rye bread, which act like natural mild laxatives.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may need extra moisturizer, lip balm or personal lubricant today. That’s because plunging estrogen is lowering your body’s moisture level, making you more prone to flaking, chapping and chafing.
