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: Careful: As your Week 1 goes on, you become more likely to agree to favors or taking on extra responsibilities that you may not have the time, energy or money for. That’s because rising estrogen is making you more and more optimistic as it climbs, giving you the feeling you can add more to your plate even when it’s already full.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Compared to your Week 3 and Week 4, you’re less sentimental and have a more “just suck it up” kind of attitude. Credit for your coolness goes to high estrogen and testosterone coupled with a lack of weepy progesterone. This hormone combination makes it easier for you to take a pragmatic, self-sufficient approach to life.
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: Compared to Week 1 and Week 2 of your cycle, you may feel a bit less physically comfortable as your Week 3 and Week 4 go on. Most notably, you’ll likely notice breast tenderness, constipation and bloat due to rising progesterone and more aches due to plunging estrogen, which makes you more sensitive to pain.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may notice you’re using more negative words and phrases, such as “no”, “can’t”, “won’t” and “shut up or I will shove this Twinkie someplace truly unfortunate”. The problem is plunging estrogen. As this hormone descends, it has the potential to put you in a negative mindset and trigger irritation by bringing down feel-good chemicals in the brain.
