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: Friends, family and kids will love to be around you this weekend. Well, at least once you get past your menstrual cramps and you get your pep revived from eating iron-rich foods or taking an iron supplement if you’ve got your period. That’s because rising estrogen and testosterone in this week of your cycle are making you funnier and funner to be around. You’re joking more, you’re thinking of pranks to play and you’re up for any kind of fun anyone can think of!
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Your friends, family and kids are likely going to be (and how do I say this politely?) a little embarrassed by you this weekend. The reason? High estrogen and testosterone are amping up your desire for really silly fun as well as your confidence. Together this hormone combination can have you singing out loud in the supermarket aisles, dancing the rumba in the farmer’s market and dressing up early for Halloween to give your costume a test run–and not caring if (okay, when) anyone notices!
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: Friends and family may call you a bit of a bore this weekend. The trouble lies with rising progesterone coupled with lower levels of estrogen and testosterone. This hormone combination makes you a bit tired, safety-conscious, insecure and unenthusiastic about their ideas for fun.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You may be considered a little inflexible and exacting by friends and family this weekend. That’s plunging estrogen’s fault. As it descends, it makes you a tad impatient with sudden or unexpected changes, for instance, you may get irked if the movie you want to see is sold out and opt to go home rather than pick a back-up movie. And you may be a bit critical of people or events that don’t quite live up to your expectations, for example, if you go to a concert and find out the performer is lip-syncing, you may grouse all night about paying for tickets to listen to what is essentially the same album you have on your iPod rather than sit back and enjoy the performer’s dancing and the energy of the crowd that you can only get during a live show.
