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: As your Week 1 goes on, you’ll likely notice it’s easier to go longer between meals without feeling hunger pangs or that you’re not eating as much as you were during Week 3 and Week 4 of your cycle. That’s estrogen’s influence. As it rises, it reins in hunger. That said, it’s still important to remember to eat three or four meals throughout your day to keep your blood sugar stable and your energy high.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find your thoughts drift back to a certain crush during your Week 2 month after month. And, chances are, that crush happens to be someone powerful in their specific circle of friends, school or profession, is physically strong or athletic, and/or has a rugged or dominant appearance. The reason? High estrogen is pushing you toward a mate with these exact characteristics as you approach ovulation. Even more fascinating, you may also find that your thoughts of this special person magically fade once Week 3 rolls around when ovulation passes and this hormone plunges!
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: Rising progesterone is triggering an assortment of uncomfortable physical changes during your Week 3, such as breast tenderness, constipation, water retention and fatigue. Believe it or not, this isn’t some mean trick by your body to make you pay for such an awesome Week 2. It’s how it prepares for pregnancy in case your egg got fertilized during ovulation. If it didn’t, then your body will get the memo that you’re not preggers at the end of Week 3, triggering progesterone levels to finally drop.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may have an absent-minded professor moment or two today where you forget someone’s name, put your house keys in the freezer or walk out of the house with two different shoes on. The problem is plunging estrogen, which saps memory and takes the shine off your brain skills. If you’ve got an important meeting or call today, take a few moments to think carefully about all the details you want to cover. The little extra effort will help you overcome this hormonal challenge so other folks won’t even notice a difference.
