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: You may get suddenly get interested in restarting a stalled project, relearning an instrument you had set down long ago or renewing a past relationship. Why? As estrogen climbs in your Week 1, it pumps up feel-good brain chemicals that make you want to reignite old passions.
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may want to remind yourself to slow down as you speak to guys this weekend, especially when you get excited, for instance, while bargaining down a salesman or asking a male friend to help you with a big project. Peaking estrogen is making you talk faster than any other week of your cycle. And, while most women can easily keep up with your rapid-fire speech, men have fewer language processing areas in the brain than gals do, which can leave them in the dust.
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then rise again
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find yourself lured to easy, no-effort activities this weekend, such as watching a movie or ordering take-out. Your lazy, hazy ways are due to rising progesterone, a sedating hormone that slows you down and mellows you out.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may find that you’re buying beauty items you don’t need, ordering food that’s totally not on your approved-food list or purchasing other items that satisfy your immediate gratification, but are completely unnecessary. As researchers have recently discovered, your free-wheeling spending is driven by your desire to quell any premenstrual aches and irritations caused by plunging estrogen. Turns out, a little splurge here and there is medicinal: It triggers a surge in brain chemicals that improve your mood and ease discomfort!
