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: As your Week 1 goes on, you’ll likely notice it’s easier to recall dates, facts and words, you’re learning new information more easily and you’re more eloquent than you’ve been in days. Credit goes to rising estrogen and testosterone which, study after study shows, sharpen brain skills and verbal ability as they climb.
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may be feeling competitive this weekend thanks to soaring testosterone, which ups your desire to be top dog. As a result, you may stop at nothing to win a game or contest, try to outdress or outperform folks around you or throw your hat into the ring for some kind of elected office, like student president, the head of your neighborhood association or queen of the tiki bar!
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: Take advantage of rising progesterone’s sedating effect to savor something you love this weekend, like your first sip of coffee, the cool breeze on your face or a kiss from your honey. According to research, taking just a few moments to appreciate these kinds of small, positive moments will make you happier all day long.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may be pressing “delete” on Facebook posts or regretting what you say today. As estrogen plunges, you have less patience, which can make you blow your stack and say some pretty cutting remarks. But, this same hormonal plunge is taking away your confidence, making you worry about hurting someone’s feelings, spurring retaliation or even triggering a lawsuit!
