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
Estrogen rises

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: So many days go by in a blur. You do the same old thing with the same old people in the same old places. I bring this up because I’d like to remind you that rising estrogen revs your enjoyment of new things, new people and new places. And this newness-loving effect gets more intense the further you get into your Week 1 and Week 2. So, when you can, take a moment to mix things up a bit. Order a different lunch. Take a different route to work or school. Or invite someone new out to tea. You may be surprised by the mood boost you get from the small change you make in your usual habits.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Thanks to high estrogen and testosterone, it’s easier to get started on a projects and keep at them till you make serious progress on them. Credit goes to the way these hormones pump up your energy and excitement, revving your motivation to cycle-long highs.

Week 3
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Unlike Week 2 gals, it’s probably going to take a little extra pushing on your part to get started on a task and to keep at it. The problem is that lower levels of estrogen combined with rising progesterone are putting your motivation on the low side.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of your cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Try to kick your inner perfectionist to the curb today. Many times, no one’s harder on you than yourself, and this can be especially true during your premenstrual Week 4 when plunging estrogen brings down your patience and makes you a tad less forgiving. So, when you think you said the wrong thing to someone or did a task the wrong way, try to remember that everyone makes mistakes even on their best days.
