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’ll probably be teasing your partner, friend, sister or other folks close to you this weekend. Your hapless victims can blame rising estrogen and testosterone for your silliness. As these hormones climb, they boost brain chemicals that put you in a good mood and make you want to find reasons to laugh…even if it’s at someone else’s expense!
Day 8 to Day 13
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: You’re likely going to be attracted to someone in a position of power and authority, who’s physically strong or who has a dangerous job, like a politician, business owner, a sports star or police officer. That’s high estrogen and testosterone’s influence. As they get higher and higher this week of your cycle, researchers believe they push you toward potential partners who have the ability to take care of you in case you get pregnant during ovulation.
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: You may notice small beautiful things–like the leaves falling from the trees, a cool breeze or the scent of a flower–that you missed during Week 1 and Week 2 of your cycle. That’s because rising progesterone coupled with lower levels of estrogen and testosterone are slowing you down, helping you enjoy little pleasures you were too busy to spot during the first half of your cycle when rising hormones had you on the go.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen, testosterone and progesterone plunge
This weekend’s Hormone Horoscope: Try to have back-up plans for whatever you do this weekend. Why? As estrogen and testosterone plunge, they make you more easily ticked off by unexpected changes in your schedule, for instance, an hour-long line at a restaurant or a sold-out movie. By having a Plan B in place, you’ll at least half-expect your original plans to fall through so it won’t be as annoying if it does happen, plus you’ll already have a second choice of activities already in mind so you can still have fun!
