My HormonologyWhich week are you on 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 rises

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Even if you’re in the tired, achy part of your period, you’ll probably notice your brain is whirring to life today: For instance, you’re having more ideas, coming up with more projects and plans and thinking of ways to fix problems. Credit goes to rising estrogen, which ratchets up brain activity the higher it climbs. And, thankfully, it will be climbing all the way through the end of Week 2!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: In your Week 2, you’re more likely to buy a lottery ticket regardless of the long odds, accept an offer for a job, date or other opportunity without doing a whole lot of research about it and jump at other chances that could have iffy outcomes. The reason? High estrogen and testosterone are pumping up brain chemicals that make you confident, optimistic and impulsive–the exact combination for feeling “lucky” if there ever was one.

Week 3
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: Expect some verbal flubs today. For instance, you may say the wrong word, forget a name and have a few more “ums” and “uhs” as you talk. Blame goes to rising progesterone, which puts a damper on recall and verbal abilities. If you’ve got a client call, presentation or other important task that requires excellent speaking skills, try using simpler words, which will come to mind more easily, and slowing down your pace as you talk, which will give your brain the extra time it needs to formulate phrases and sentences the exact way you want them.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Careful holding laptops, cell phones and other delicate objects today. Plunging estrogen is making you a tad less coordinated, which can lead to an expensive crash!
