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: If it’s the first half of your Week 1, use your energy wisely: You may start out feeling as though you have momentum that will carry you through the whole day and into the evening. But, more likely than not, the loss of energizing iron from menstruation coupled with low (though climbing) estrogen and testosterone are going to give you a limited store of pep that peters out by mid to late afternoon. If it’s the second half of your Week 1, you’ll feel a surge of energy that’s longer-lasting. It may even be a little too much, triggering a racing heart or the jitters till your body gets used to the extra oomph.
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re more willing to be adventurous with your hair, makeup and clothes today. High estrogen and testosterone are making you focus on your outward appearance as they push you to land a new partner or get more attention from the one you already have!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’ll probably find yourself getting lost in daydreams today as rising progesterone slows your thinking and has your brain going on auto-pilot more frequently than in the past two weeks. Luckily, research shows you can still get a lot of work done while daydreaming. Turns out, when you let your thoughts wander, your brain connects different ideas together to help you come up with creative solutions to nagging problems.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Be prepared to shed a tear at the most ridiculous moments, for instance, when watching a TV commercial, walking the dog or making lunch. It’s just descending estrogen that’s triggering the waterworks. As this hormone plunges, it depletes your brain of the feel-good brain chemical serotonin, which makes you more apt to tear up. The good news? Studies show that crying releases stress and boosts mood, making this an ingenious and easy way for your body to level out your emotions.
