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: If it’s the first half of your Week 1, you may be noshing on chips, ice cream and other “naughty” foods as a way to counter fatigue or cramp pain from your period. If it’s the second half of your Week 1, you may notice that your desire for junk food wanes and you may even have the urge to eat healthier. Credit goes to rising estrogen, which has a slight appetite-suppressing effect and boosts your outlook, making you more likely to want to make good-for-you choices.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If you’re doing something important, say, going on a job interview or pitching a new project to your boss, try to slow down as you speak. High estrogen is speeding you up a bit, which can make it difficult for others tocatchwhatyou’resaying!

Week 3
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: The body confidence you had during your Week 2 may give way to a bit of self-consciousness today. Researchers believe that even though your appearance doesn’t actually change all that much, water retention and a down mood due to plunging estrogen and testosterone may make you feel like you don’t look your best.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: It may be more difficult to let go of a grudge or end a feud today. That’s because plunging estrogen is making you less flexible and forgiving. For the same reason, folks who tick you off today may inadvertently end up spurring a new grudge or feud with you.
