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: As your Week 1 goes on, you’re probably saying more positive words and phrases, such as “enjoy”, “love”, “great” and “no problem”, and pressing the “Like” button on Facebook more frequently. You may also be smiling more, gesticulating a lot and using friendlier body language, for instance, touching someone’s arm or back when you talk with them. Why? As estrogen rises throughout Week 1, it’s boosting your mood, optimism and desire to connect with others!
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may try a new hairstyle, wear a new outfit or gussy yourself up in another way today. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are making you more outgoing and, whether you realize it or not, enjoying being the center of attention!
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: Unlike Week 2 gals, you may feel like blending into the background today as rising progesterone and lower levels of estrogen and testosterone dampen your desire to stand out in a crowd, make you less comfortable leading the pack and have you more secure working as part of a team or behind the scenes.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find it difficult to stick to healthy eating promises you’ve made for yourself. The problem is plunging estrogen. As the level of this hormone descends, it reduces the output of feel-good brain chemicals while also weakening willpower. The result? You crave “naughty” foods as a way to boost your mood back up and you have less power to resist! That said, you don’t have to be a complete slave to your cravings. Research shows you can reduce the desire for calorie-rich foods by simply taking a brisk 10-minute walk, which lessens cravings by triggering a flood of mood-lifting endorphins.
