Which week are you on in your monthly cycle? Find out what it reveals about what your day has in store:
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: What I love about Week 1 is that once you’re past the achy, tiring part of your period, you’re more likely to let your hair down and your freak flag fly. For instance, you may start dancing in the middle of a store when your favorite song comes on over the PA, wear those zany earrings that no one loves but you or laugh out loud (for real) and maybe even actually roll on the floor laughing. Credit for your wacky ways goes to rising estrogen, which lifts levels of feel-good brain chemicals that make you more upbeat, extroverted and confident–a perfect combination for enjoying life on your terms and not caring what anybody else thinks!
Day 8 to Day 14 (or ovulation)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Pay closer attention when someone pours out her heart to you today, for instance, when a friend tells you she just broke up with her partner or a sister worries that she may never find her dream job. Your high estrogen and testosterone are making you super-optimistic and putting you in a jocular mood, so you may try to cheer her up by promising that not only will everything be alright, they’ll be better than before or by making a bunch of jokes when what she really wants is a bit of sympathy or serious, heartfelt advice.
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: During your Week 2, high estrogen and testosterone made you more likely to embrace new experiences and leave the past in the past. During your Week 3, you’re more likely to feel wistful about former experiences, with certain people, sights, TV shows or foods triggering memories from childhood, a place you used to live or an old relationship. The reason? The combination of lower estrogen and testosterone with rising progesterone makes you more reflective and sentimental, which can trigger a longing for people and experiences from long ago.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: If you get a bad sense about something–say, that someone’s not telling you the whole truth, that a restaurant may not be sanitary or that it’s time to leave a party because it’s getting out of hand–pay attention. Research shows your hunches about duplicitous people and dangerous situations are sharper in your premenstrual Week 4 as plunging estrogen makes you more attuned to spotting potential threats.
