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: You’re likely going to get an extra kick out of jokes, comedies, someone accidentally bumping into a pole and any of the other usual laugh-inducers. Credit goes to today’s rising estrogen, which boosts feel-good brain chemicals that amp up your sense of humor.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may drive the people around you a little nutty as you talk out loud, sing to yourself, chat to your pets or plants or come up with any other way to get your gab on. High estrogen is making you chatty and high confidence-boosting testosterone doesn’t have you the least bit self-conscious about where or how you express your verbal side!
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: Here’s what confuses guys and people who you’ve met during the first two weeks of your cycle: Just last week you were chatty, high-energy, adventurous and flirtatious. So, when you suddenly clam up, slow down, play it safe and turn it off, they can’t understand what’s behind the change. You can try explaining to them that rising progesterone and lower levels of estrogen and testosterone affect brain chemicals that moderate mood, energy, confidence and libido. And if that doesn’t work, simply try telling them you’re just hungry and invite them join you in a delicious meal of homey goodies that coincidentally fulfill your many progesterone-fueled cravings—like mac ‘n cheese, biscuits ‘n gravy or doughnuts. Lots and lots of doughnuts.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Here’s the thing about PMS symptoms: They don’t happen to every woman and they can vary in intensity from cycle to cycle depending on the foods you eat, stress and other things that affect your body’s chemistry. And, while I often focus on PMS moods and aches during premenstrual Week 4, truth is, PMS is more like the punctuation in the sentence that is this week. That is to say, it pops up here and there, but it’s usually not a steady constant. So, what happens between the PMS symptoms? This week is mellow and low-key, but you’re probably not as sleepy as you were last week when sedating progesterone was on the rise. You may have difficulty remembering a few details or words, or lose your train of thought as brain-sharpening estrogen plunges. And, your libido returns with a roar as your body prepares for menstruation, stimulating nerve endings down below.
