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 you’re in the first half of your Week 1, chances are, low-but-rising estrogen is making you a bit of a homebody, but it has you thinking about social plans you’d like to make. If you’re in the second half of your Week 1, this hormone has likely risen to a level that makes you ready to break out of your menstrual hut and hit the town!
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If you encounter a snafu today–say, the soap dispenser stops working properly or you run out of coffee–your high estrogen and testosterone make you more likely to want to figure out a way to fix it and even make improvements so it never happens again. That’s because these elevated hormones boost your patience, optimism and energy–a great combination for tackling problems head-on!
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: If it’s the first half of your Week 3, as estrogen and testosterone fall, you may feel crankiness, the blues and irritability since this hormonal drop triggers a “pre-PMS” state. If you’re in the second half of your Week 3, estrogen rises again, which takes the moody edge off, leaving you with progesterone’s mellow, subdued effects.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Unlike Week 2 gals, if you encounter a snafu today–say, the soap dispenser stops working properly or you run out of coffee–your plunging estrogen makes you more likely to get super-irritated about it and (after you’ve calmed down a bit) find the easiest way to fix it, even if it means lathering up with shampoo or getting in the car in your jammies and going through a McDonald’s drive-thru for your java fix. That’s because plunging estrogen is depleting your brain of mood-stabilizing serotonin, which gives you a far shorter fuse when faced with problems.
