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 Week 1 goes on and estrogen rises higher and higher, you become more susceptible to sales pitches, flirtatious come-ons and requests for favors. That’s because you’re more impulsive, upbeat and outgoing–all traits that make you a tad less critical of what’s being asked of you.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Try to avoid letting high hormone-fueled over-optimism get the better of you, for instance, by lulling you into the false sense that you have lots more time to complete a project than you really do, that the big flaws of a current partner or someone new you’ve met are totally fixable or that doing any kind of dangerous activity is really safe just because a drunk friend/paid promoter/voice in your head says so.
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: Rising progesterone is doing the food ordering today and what this hormone wants is fatty, sweet, salty, carb-rich comfort foods. Preferably in multiple servings frequently throughout the day. That’s because this hormone is ratcheting up your appetite in case your egg got fertilized during ovulation and you need to eat for two now. Your body won’t get the memo that you’re not preggers till the start of Week 4. Till then, it’s cravings-city, lady.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: With estrogen descending, it may be more difficult to make a choice today as you weigh the pros and cons over and over. My advice? When you can, pick options you already know and love, for instance, choose a lunch you’ve eaten before, watch a movie you know by heart or hang with your besties over someone new. During your Week 4, you’re happier with food, activities and people that are familiar and bring you comfort since it helps balance out a bad premenstrual mood and distract you from low hormone aches and pains.
