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: Once you’re over the achy, fatiguey part of your period, Week 1 is a good time to start or restart a diet, exercise routine, commitment to quit smoking or another self-improvement regimen. That’s because rising estrogen and testosterone are making you firmer in your decision to make a positive life change and they’re lessening any pain, discomfort, irritability and other symptoms that often occur at the outset.
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may not want to take orders from others today and prefer to be the one doing the bossing around. That’s testosterone’s influence. As it climbs, it brings out your inner leader by upping your confidence, independence and desire for power!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find yourself zoning out every now and then today. Okay, more now than then. The problem is rising progesterone. This hormone has a sedating effect that makes the idea of staying focused just seem like so much work.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Cue the F-bombs: Plunging estrogen and testosterone are making you more prone to letting your feelings fly. And during this premenstrual week, those feelings are often ones of irritation and impatience, for instance, when someone cuts you off in traffic or a coworker mucks up an important project. The good news? Swearing is actually good for you! Research shows it temporarily reduces pain and also gives you a way to let off steam, making you feel better instantly.
