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: For most women with a normal, healthy cycle, your body may feel a shock as it switches from a steep descent in estrogen during your premenstrual Week 4 to a sudden rise in estrogen in your Week 1. As a result, you may experience headaches, acne, diarrhea and other uncomfortable symptoms for a few days. However, by the middle of your Week 1, your body should be getting used to the steady climb and these bothersome problems will likely fade.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: On some days, things just seem harder and on other days things just seems easier. Of course, we’re more apt to notice the days when things are harder since, well, we’re using a lot more swear words to vent our frustration, making it pretty obvious. So, I just want to give you a heads up that things may be a bit easier today as rising estrogen and testosterone boost your brain skills, energy and dexterity. That way, you can appreciate all those times when you had a killer comeback to a frenemy’s passive-aggressive insult, you met your teacher or boss’s impossible deadline and you caught your favorite mug in mid-air before it broke into pieces on the floor!
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: Fast-talking salespeople, non-stop chatting co-workers, overly-sharing neighbors and other gabby folks who try to talk circles around you may annoy you today as rising progesterone has you preferring a slower, mellower approach.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may be feeling self-conscious about what you say today as estrogen plunges, decreasing your confidence. Luckily, there’s an easy trick that not only makes others more likely to agree with what you say, it also makes you more self-assured about your opinions, too: Simply nod your head as you speak. According to a study by Richard E. Petty, Ph.D., from Ohio State University, nodding as you talk boosts your self-confidence in your own thoughts. Meanwhile, shaking your head does the opposite: it makes you doubt yourself!
