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
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: As your estrogen rises in your Week 1, it makes you more curious about the world around you. As a result, you may be easily distracted as you do tasks, for instance, while doing research on the Internet, you may find yourself clicking links to interesting articles when you should be working. Or you may see an interesting interview on TV while cooking and forget about the food you’re heating up in the oven.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may be saying, “I can do that!” more frequently today even if it’s something that’s difficult to do. For instance, you might sign up for a class even though it’s a challenging topic, decide you can design and sew your own dress after hearing about someone else who did it or register for your first marathon. Credit for your sudden super-powers goes to high estrogen and testosterone. Not only are they pumping up levels of feel-good brain chemicals that make you believe you really can accomplish just about anything, they’re also sharpening your brain skills, improving your dexterity, ratcheting up your energy and making other improvements in your body and mind that make you better at whatever task you take on.
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Passionate feelings you had for a certain person or activity in your Week 2 may fade or disappear altogether in your Week 3. Why the sudden change? During Week 2, high estrogen and testosterone pushed you to pursue exciting partners (such as a cute, but mysterious, new neighbor) and pastimes (like zip lining) by ratcheting up your desire for thrills. During your Week 3, estrogen and testosterone plunge while progesterone rises–and this hormone combination is pushing you to pursue subdued partners (such as the bookish accountant at work) and pastimes (like knitting) by ratcheting up your desire for safety.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: It was easier to ignore problems you have with annoying roommates, underperforming partners or ungrateful pals in your Week 1, Week 2 and Week 3. However, during your premenstrual Week 4, as estrogen falls, all that frustration, disappointment or irritation is more likely to boil over, making it difficult to keep your true feelings under wraps. Unfortunately, plunging estrogen is bringing down your mood and making you more quick to anger so all those emotions you’ve been bottling up can come spilling out in a tidal wave, which can surprise folks who had no idea they were even ticking you off. My advice? When you feel the urge to explode in anger over another dunderheaded move someone makes, take a deep breath and try to explain to them in a calm voice what they’re doing wrong and offer a way they can change their behavior. You’ll avoid scaring them more than a Friday the 13th fright flick while also upping your chances of getting them to fix the problem.
