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: If it’s the first half of your Week 1, chances are low-but-rising estrogen has you a bit on the quiet side, so you’re less likely to pipe up in conversation or talk someone’s ear off. If it’s the second half of your Week 1, anyone within a 5-foot radius is fair game for your verbal volleys. That’s because a higher level of estrogen is inspiring you to talk up a storm and a higher level of testosterone is making you more confident about what you have to say, so you’re more likely to share what you think.
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re likely to let out your naughty side today, for instance, by sending risque pictures to your sweetie, playing practical jokes on friends, letting curses fly toward someone who irritated you or breaking a rule you know you really shouldn’t. Credit for your bad-girl ways goes to high estrogen and testosterone, which make you bold, daring and impulsive.
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 feel a bit more sentimental today as rising progesterone gives your heartstrings an emotional tug. As a result, you may get the urge to book a vacation to a spot you enjoyed visiting with loved ones, call an old classmate out of the blue to say hi or look up old pals on Facebook to see what they’ve been up to all these years.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: For me, my worst premenstrual day is Day 23, the first day of Week 4, when virtually anything can set me off into a vocal cord-snapping screamfest that deafens all within a 10-foot radius (not that I’m bragging). After that, my irritability kind of subsides and maybe rears its head a couple of times, but far less intensely, till the end of my cycle. I bring this up because, for you, your worst premenstrual day may be a different day during Week 4, irritability and the blues may rise and fall throughout the week or, if you’re one of the lucky ones, you may have no moodiness at all. My point is that PMS is not a one-size-fits-all experience, but it is a time to be aware that plunging estrogen has the potential to bring down good feelings and make you lose your cool, so try to avoid triggers that you know would set you off.
