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 and testosterone rise

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You get more and more playful, friendly and jokey as Week 1 goes on. Friends may even comment on the difference between your mood this week compared to when you were in Week 4 of your cycle. Credit for the jovial feelings goes directly to rising estrogen, which prompts the brain to churn out more feel-good brain chemicals that help you take things less seriously than you did last week.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Give yourself a reminder to talk more slowly around the men-folk today. High estrogen and testosterone are making you speak faster than during any other week in your cycle. While other women won’t have a problem with your quick pace, most men—who have fewer language processing centers in their brain—will be left in the dust!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: My twin sister, Danielle, can always tell when I’ve entered my Week 3. And she announces it with an, “Ugh, you’re so boring. You must be in Week 3. Call me back when Week 1 starts.” So, too, do you have the potential to be a bit of a drag today. Rising progesterone is making you sedate, quiet and preferring safety over derring-do. As a result, you may contribute less to a conversation, laugh less enthusiastically when friends joke, be less prone to being playful and not jump right in when pals propose crashing a frat party.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Think you have it all bad during your premenstrual phase? Not so! Some experts believe your powers of intuition sharpen and you become more in touch with your artistic side this week. And, research shows that a dour premenstrual mood actually makes you better at spotting details and less likely to fall prey to sneaky sales traps since you notice more than someone who’s got their head in the clouds.
