Today’s Daily Hormone Horoscope: Wednesday, October 17, 2012

My Hormonology Which 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 and testosterone rise

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Sure, embarrassing things happen—such as bumping into a pole, breaking a heel or stumbling down the steps. Luckily, if they happen to you today, rising estrogen is upping your feel-good brain chemicals, which makes it way easier to laugh off embarrassments and quickly move on without too much fuss.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: High testosterone is boosting your confidence. So take the opportunity to ask for something you want—for example, flex-time from your boss, money you loaned to a friend, or a neck massage from your sweetie (and not the chintzy five-second kind either)!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Today’s rising progesterone is prone to making you less eloquent than you have been in the past two weeks. The result: You may say a few more “ums” and “ahs” than usual, find it difficult to remember the exact phrase you wanted to utter and say the wrong word instead. The easy fix: Slow down as you speak and think about what you want to say before you say it. Not only will it help you get over this progesterone tongue tie-up, research shows that folks who speak slowly and pause actually appear smarter than their faster-paced peers.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Don’t be surprised if you feel dizzy or bump into walls today. That’s simply a side effect of descending estrogen. As this hormone plunges, it decreases your dexterity and coordination. Which probably means you should take extra care when practicing your fire baton twirling and group water ballet!
