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 and testosterone rise

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If you’re in the first half of your Week 1, you may not feel like going out, being social or chatting too much. That’s because, while on the rise, estrogen and testosterone are still very low. What’s more, aches and pains from menstruation may be bumming you out. If it’s the second half of your Week 1, however, menstruation is waning and estrogen and testosterone have likely risen to a level that’s making you extroverted and talkative, so you may feel an intense desire to get out of the house and hang out with lots and lots of pals.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: High estrogen and testosterone are making you super-optimistic today. While that’s often an awesome thing, it can have its downsides, too. One is that you may decide not to make a big change that will improve your life because you’re so optimistic things will get better somehow. For instance, you may stop looking for a new job because you’re hopeful things will get better at your current one or you may stay with a partner who keeps disappointing you because you’re hopeful he or she will change. So, your challenge is to try to take a realistic look at your life and try not to sweep problems under the rug that should be addressed.

Week 3
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 may find yourself turning away from graphic scenes of illness or accidents on TV or websites or you may move quickly away from fish, sweaty sneakers or other foul-smelling items. Why? According to a new study, rising progesterone makes you more easily disgusted. Researchers believe this increased sensitivity to being grossed out is the body’s way of helping you protect a developing fetus in case you got pregnant during ovulation at the start of this week. So until your body gets the memo that you’re not preggers at the start of Week 4, triggering a drop in progesterone, you may need to steer clear of things that can make you queasy.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You have the opposite problem of Week 2 gals: With estrogen and testosterone plunging, you’re apt to focus on the negative side of things and avoid seeing the good parts, which could prompt you to want to make a big change, such as quitting your job or leaving your partner. Before you take drastic action, try to take a realistic look at your problems and ask pals what their thoughts are to get more perspective.
