Which week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll probably notice that compared to last week your memory is sharper, you’re thinking faster on your feet and you’re more eloquent. These brain benefits are courtesy of rising estrogen and testosterone, which continue to sharpen these mental skills all the way through the end of Week 2.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Whether you realize it or not, you’re going to be more flirtatious today. That’s because when estrogen reaches the heights it does this week, it makes you use more of a sing-songy voice, gets you to smile wider so you show more teeth, gives your face a bit of a glow, makes your facial features a tad more symmetrical and pumps up your body’s output of come-hither pheremones—all proven ways to attract hotties within a five-mile radius.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may feel a bit more sentimental today as rising progesterone gives your hearstrings an emotional tug. As a result, you may get the urge to book a vacation to a spot you enjoyed visiting with loved ones, call an old classmate out of the blue to say hi or look up old pals on Facebook to see what they’ve been up to all these years.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Try filling your weekend with proven mood-boosting activities, like exercising, spending time with good pals, treating yourself to your favorite chocolate glazed doughnut or going for a mani/pedi. Plunging estrogen brings down feel-good brain chemicals and this may or may not trigger a down mood. But, with so many easy, fun ways to ward it off, why even risk it?
