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: Heads up, Week 1 gal: Even if you don’t feel like going out and having fun today, by the time the weekend comes, chances are, your rising estrogen is going to make you want to get out of the house and socialize. That’s because the higher this hormone goes, the more it boosts brain chemicals that make you more outgoing, talkative and adventurous. So, do yourself a favor and start making awesome weekend plans now so you don’t regret being stuck indoors watching reruns on TV once Friday night rolls around.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: As estrogen and testosterone rise toward their peaks today, they boost your feelings of power and confidence. As a result, you may find that you’re showing off a bit, boldly stating your opinions without fear of what other people think, insisting your view is the right (and best!) one or volunteering to head up projects or committees. Enjoy the power surge now–by Week 3, dipping estrogen and testosterone can have these pumped-up feelings fading fast.

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: Compared to how you dressed in Week 2 of your cycle, you may notice your necklines climbing, your hemlines falling and your body shape hidden behind baggier duds. Why the sudden modesty? Lower levels of estrogen are making you more demure. And rising progesterone is triggering bloat and constipation, making you want to camouflage any extra bulges.

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

Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may be more easily distracted today as plunging estrogen lowers your powers of concentration, making it difficult to keep your mind from wandering during a dull meeting or the fourth rendition of your friend’s story about how she snagged a great designer sweater for half the price. That said, you will surprisingly still be able focus on online shopping, your favorite TV show and that pint of Chunky Monkey ice cream with the greatest of ease.
