Which week are you on
in your monthly cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your weekend has in store:
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Estrogen and testosterone rise
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Treat yourself to game plan for your Week 1 and Week 2 today, for instance, make plans to start a project, host a party, sign up for a class or go on a big trip. During the first half of your cycle, you have the most energy, motivation and desire to do activities and be social. And making sure you take advantage of these rising hormone effects before they wear off in Week 3 (which always comes faster than you think) will nix any regrets you’d have about missing this window of opportunity!
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Treat yourself to an activity you’ve been wanting to do, but have put off again and again, such as taking photos, going on a hike or dancing. Doing your favorite hobbies makes you happier now than any other week of your cycle thanks to high estrogen and testosterone, which prompt the brain to churn out feel-good chemicals whenever you do something fun!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Treat yourself to a bit of indulgent comfort food, such as cookies, pizza or French fries. If there’s any week of your cycle when these types of “naughty” foods are most appreciated, it’s Week 3 when rising progesterone boosts your desire for high-calorie, salty and/or sweet fare.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Treat yourself to a small gift, such as earrings, an essential oil, new shoes or a handmade scarf. Little presents you give yourself temporarily boost your mood, which is key since you’re more prone to negativity and irritation as estrogen and testosterone plunge this week of your cycle.
