My HormonologyWhich week are you on
in your monthly cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:

Week 1
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Today’s hormone horoscope: Rising estrogen and testosterone put you in an extroverted kind of mood that makes you want to leave your mark on the world, even in a small way, such as posting more frequently on Facebook, leaving reviews on shopping websites or starting your own blog.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormone horoscope: Your challenge today is to not look at scenarios with an overly optimistic view. High estrogen and testosterone are making you think that any problem can be solved and everything will work out in the end. As a result, you may give unrealistic advice to a friend or take risks that can put you in harm’s way. If you can catch yourself before you say or do something overly optimistic (which will be difficult since these high hormones also make you just a tad impulsive), try to think of what a more realistic outcome could be.

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormone horoscope: Things you were giddy about last week may suddenly seem not so awesome. People you were happy to hang around last week may suddenly seem like total idiots. And activities you were glad to do last week may suddenly too annoying to try. What gives? Welcome to Week 3, or as I like to call it, the “B side” of your cycle. (For anyone under 35, that’s the song on the back of a 45 record that usually sucks and it’s the A side that the radio stations want to play. In this scenario, the first half of your cycle is the “A side”.) Anyway, the week starts off with a steep dive in estrogen and testosterone, which prompts a “pre-PMS” kind of crankiness. And even though these hormones begin to rise again in the middle of the week, putting this crankiness aside, you’re also contending with progesterone, a sedating hormone that rises all throughout the week and makes you a bit ho-hum about things you were totally jazzed about in Week 2. So, what can you do? Try reminding yourself that a foul mood or boredom may just be due to your hormones. This will help you from pointing a guilty finger at a project, person or activity, which will make you feel a little better about them.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Today’s hormone horoscope: You may be tempted to buy little items that boost your mood, like a cup of gelato, a new purse or sandals. Go ahead indulge since small treats help build up feel-good brain chemicals that sag as estrogen plunges this week. Just be careful not to go overboard since the ensuing guilt and stress can put the kibosh on any positive feelings these treats gave you.
