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’ll likely notice it’s easier to recall dates, facts and words, you’re learning new information more easily and you’re more eloquent than you’ve been in days. Credit goes to rising estrogen, which sharpens brain skills and verbal ability as it climbs.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: This is the week of your cycle when high estrogen and testosterone are ratcheting up your energy, mood, brain skills and libido. If you’re not feeling these positive effects, take it as a sign that something’s off, for instance, you may be under an unusual amount of stress, are skimping on sleep or are coming down with a cold. Once you pinpoint the problem and fix it or get past it, you’ll find that your hormone-fueled pep, optimism, mental sharpness and desire shoot back up again.
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: Don’t pay too much attention to the bathroom scale this week of your cycle. Rising progesterone triggers bloating and constipation, which can add an extra pound or two. Luckily, this added weight should disappear by the end of Week 4 or the beginning of Week 1 when progesterone bottoms out.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’ll likely be drawn toward familiar foods and activities that you find comforting, such as eating chips and dip with a really bad reality TV show. That’s because plunging estrogen triggers some aches, pains and moodiness, which makes you seek out tried-and-true ways to feel better fast.
