Today’s Daily Hormone Horoscope: Thursday, August 12, 2010

My HormonologyWhich week of your cycle are you on?

Week 1
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope:
The optimistic boost you get from rising estrogen has you giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Have your period? Then a rise in the “trust hormone” oxytocin that occurs during menstruation makes you tempted to believe something you shouldn’t, like that you’ll get the money owed to you next week or that skinny jeans look good on anyone.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Itchin’ to get the weekend started early, party-seeking rising estrogen and testosterone make it hard to turn down practically any offer to hang out tonight. Of course, these hormones haven’t made you crazy, so Annoying Chad from accounting is still outta luck.

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Doughnuts, cookies, chocolate, oh my! Is there no diet resolution rising progesterone won’t try to make you break today? Not unless you resolved to up your annual Thin Mint consumption, there isn’t.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: It may feel like someone made the doorways narrower and moved all the furniture one inch to the right. It’s not a sneaky trick. It’s just descending estrogen making a you a bit less coordinated. Which means you should definitely think twice today before practicing your cheerleading pyramids and fire baton juggling.
