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: Even if you still have aches and fatigue from your period, chances are, you’ve got romance on your mind today…and you can expect these thoughts to pop up with more frequency as you get further and further into Week 1 and Week 2. Blame (credit?) for the lusty thoughts goes to rising estrogen, which pushes you to seek out a healthy mate in time for ovulation, and rising testosterone, which revs your libido in case you need another reason to get out there and make a love connection!
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re probably going to be speaking a lot faster today thanks to high estrogen, which pushes you to pick up the pace as it climbs throughout Week 2. Luckily, there’s an easy way to use your speedy speech to your advantage: Use it to convince someone to go along with your idea! According to a study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, folks are more easily persuaded when you tell them all the reasons for your point of view at a faster-than-normal rate. Turns out, when you speed up, it makes you appear more confident about your argument, which makes folks more convinced you’re right!
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 surprise yourself with the extra moment or two you give yourself to pause before spending money or by deciding not to purchase an item altogether. Why? Compared to your shopping habits in the first half of your cycle, you’re less prone to splurging now due to lower levels of testosterone (which makes you less impulsive than you were in Week 1 and Week 2) and lower levels of estrogen (which makes you less optimistic about how you’re going to come up with the cash to pay the bill) coupled with rising progesterone (which is a hormone that urges you to be cautious).
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may let some healthy habits slide today, for instance, you may skip your vitamins, forget to floss, back out of an exercise date or opt for take-out for lunch. The reason? As estrogen and testosterone take a dive in this premenstrual week, they tend to bring down your optimism and mood, which can make you wonder if following healthy habits is worth the time and effort.
