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 rises

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: During the first half of your Week 1, it’s common to experience a flare-up of a chronic condition or have more sensitivity to aches and pains due to low-but-rising estrogen. Luckily, there’s something to look forward to: As you enter the second half of your Week 1, higher levels of estrogen typically make those health problems subside and reduce your sensitivity to discomfort.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If you’ve got a closet, garage or other storage space to clean out, Week 2 is a great week to do it. Not only are high estrogen and testosterone giving you the physical energy and stamina to get through the task, these peaking hormones are also making you far less sentimental, so it’s easier to part with items you’ve had for awhile or that were given to you for a special occasion or by a certain person, but that you don’t need or use anymore.

Week 3
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 the first half of your cycle, rising estrogen had you more curious about the world around you. Now that you’re in the second half of your cycle, lower levels of estrogen combined with rising progesterone make you tend to look inward. As a result, you may end up examining your life and assessing your relationships, wondering if you’re going in the right direction.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: During the first half of your cycle, rising estrogen boosted brain chemicals that made you more optimistic and happy so you were more likely to accept what a salesperson, co-worker, stranger or other person told you without questioning it. Now that estrogen is plunging, it’s making you more pessimistic and a little dour, which makes you more likely to be suspicious of people’s motives and wonder if they’re not telling you the whole truth.
