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: Your Week 1 may get off to a slow start, but as it goes on, your confidence in your appearance starts to climb. And there’s plenty of reason for it: As estrogen rises throughout your Week 1, it helps you shed water weight and puts an end to tummy-bloating constipation due to progesterone from the last two weeks of your cycle. What’s more, it’s making your skin tone more even and moister and it’s making your facial features a tad more symmetrical. Even better, it’s prompting a higher output of brain chemicals that buck up your self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself. As a result of all these positive changes, you may be donning more colorful clothes or jewelry, wearing more makeup or spending more time on your hair as you become more comfortable being the center of attention.
Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation (here’s how to tell when you’re ovulating)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: It’s a lot easier to impress you today, for instance, when meeting someone new, sampling a new food or listening to a pal’s proposal for a girls-only getaway. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are ratcheting up your excitement and enthusiasm to cycle-long highs, making new experiences seem more thrilling.
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: Unlike Week 2 gals, it may be more difficult for you to be impressed today, for instance, when on a first date, trying a new restaurant or listening to a pal’s proposal for a girls-only getaway. The problem is that rising progesterone coupled with lower levels of estrogen and testosterone are making you less easily excited and more likely to feel ho-hum about people, experiences and events.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: While you’re just as smart as you always were and still have the skills, experience and education that has carried you this far, plunging estrogen may trigger a few absent-minded moments in your day that make you doubt your intelligence. For example, I remember one chilly morning during my premenstrual Week 4 when I was playing Frisbee in the park with my dog, Bailey. I was shivering and wished I’d brought a sweater with me. A neighbor walked over and said, “If you’re that cold, why don’t you get out of the shade and stand in the sun?” That hadn’t even occurred to me. And, sure enough, moving a few steps to my right made all the difference. So, too, might you have an instance today where you slap your forehead wondering why you hadn’t thought of that before.
