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: If it’s the first half of your Week 1, you’ll likely experience a sigh of relief as PMS symptoms wane thanks to rising estrogen. However, you may still feel like you’re not running on all cylinders since estrogen is still pretty low, making you a bit tired, foggy or achy. If it’s the second half of your Week 1, you’re likely getting into the swing of things, feeling a whoosh of energy, experiencing a surge of good feelings and noticing your brain skills are getting sharper. Thanks goes to higher levels of estrogen. And these great benefits only get better and better all through the end of Week 2 as estrogen continues to climb!
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find that you’re able to handle gross, gory or icky stuff today. Well, at least a little more than you could during other weeks of your cycle. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are pumping up your confidence, derring-do and desire for a thrill–even if it makes you squirm a little!
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: Passionate feelings you had about a person, project or hobby last week may wane today. The problem? Rising progesterone coupled with lower levels of estrogen and testosterone reduce your excitement, energy and optimism.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: While premenstrual Week 4 is known as a time when many women experience moodiness and anger, truth is, you may experience a bit of euphoria or a giggling fit out of the blue. That’s because the same brain chemical that triggers premenstrual irritation–noradrenaline–can also cause bouts of excitement. What’s more, some women actually get a bit of a mood lift in Week 4. That may be because your body’s level of progesterone–a hormone that can trigger the blues–drops steadily throughout this week till it hits rock-bottom right before your period. As a result, you may feel like a black cloud that hung over you in Week 3 has passed, giving you some relief.
