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 rises

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If it’s the first few days of your Week 1,  you may be struggling with a little acne left over from your premenstrual Week 4, which could make you a tad self-conscious. However, as your Week 1 goes on, you’ve got good reason to get a surge of self-esteem: Rising estrogen is boosting your beauty by clearing up your complexion, evening out your skin tone, giving your cheeks a healthy glow and making your facial features slightly more symmetrical.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Today, you’re more likely to laugh at jokes and funny sights and sounds. What’s more, your laughter is louder, longer and more intense than it usually is during other weeks of your cycle. Credit for the guffaws goes to high estrogen. As this hormone reaches its peak, it prompts the brain to churn out more endorphins, chemicals that boost mood so high you can’t help but giggle.

Week 3
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: You’ll likely notice that compared to your Week 2, you’re wearing less makeup, donning less jewelry, are choosing more loose-fitting, less colorful outfits and opting for roomy shoes over ones that pinch and bind. What’s behind the casual garb? As progesterone rises and estrogen and testosterone fall, you’re less interested in being the center of attention like you were last week and more focused on personal comfort.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Careful carrying delicate china, slicing onions or doing anything else that requires dexterity or coordination. Plunging estrogen is bringing down both skills, making you likely to be a little clumsy.
