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: It may be difficult to focus today as thoughts of romance intrude every now and then. Well, more now than then. That’s because as estrogen rises, it pushes you to think about connecting with the love you already have in your life or the hottie you want!
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: If you’ve got a budget to stick to, you may need to remind yourself to avoid splurging on items you don’t need or buying products with unnecessary options that ratchet up the price. With estrogen and testosterone soaring this week, they’re pumping up your impulsivity and optimism–a recipe for tricking yourself into thinking you can afford just about anything or that you’ll figure out how to pay off the bill somehow!
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: It may be a real struggle to stick to a weight-loss or healthy eating plan today. That’s because you have rising progesterone intensifying your appetite and triggering cravings for sweet, salty, carb-rich and/or fatty foods. To keep your appetite in check, try eating four to five small meals throughout the day instead of three large ones, which helps keeps your blood sugar stable so you don’t get hit with intense hunger pangs. And when cravings hit, take a 10-minute walk, which reduces yearnings for naughty foods by pumping up feel-good endorphins and busting stress. Both of these methods are study-proven to help you stick to your food goals.
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Plunging estrogen is bringing down your patience with others and making you more likely to snap at folks when ticked off. And, that’s a good thing! That’s because it means you may finally speak your mind to folks who really need to hear it, like the friend who’s always borrowing money and never paying it back or the partner who’s all take and no give. If you were all high-estrogen bubbliness and patience all month, then you’d have to put up with annoying folks like this forever!
