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: If you’ve got a long-term school, work or other project to do, put some time into it this weekend. Your rising estrogen and testosterone are making you smarter and faster than you’ll be during the second half of your cycle. So, you’ll be able to make serious headway with less effort!
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s hormone horoscope: Ever see that movie “Yes Man” with Jim Carrey where he has to say “yes” to any opportunity presented to him? You might want to take inspiration from that film and also answer with a “yes” to opportunities that come your way this weekend. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are making you more daring and are triggering a flood of brain chemicals that make you feel super-awesome anytime you do something new and exciting!
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: Baby your body this weekend. With lower levels of estrogen, you’re more likely to notice aches and pains that didn’t bother you as much during the first half of your cycle. So, skip the shoes that pinch, the bra that binds and when practicing your unicycle riding, wear knee pads in case you flop over.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s hormone horoscope: Here’s some good news: You may notice that your energy level is a bit higher than it was in Week 3! The reason? Progesterone, a seriously sleep-inducing hormone, is on the downswing. And, even though energizing estrogen and testosterone are plunging, too, just taking away that hormonal sedative is enough to perk you back up!
