My HormonologyWhich week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:

Week 1
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: In a relationship? Then rising estrogen is making it easier to overlook your sweetie’s faults, like arriving late to a date or forgetting your two-week anniversary. Single? Rising estrogen is making you more forgiving of the foibles of a potential mate, like, say, a smoking habit or a desire to watch the royal wedding.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Some may call you stubborn today as you dig your heels in and refuse to budge on issues or opinions. High estrogen and testosterone are making you confident about where you stand and not caring about what happens if you don’t give an inch!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Today’s rising progesterone makes you less eloquent than you’ve been in the past two weeks. The result: You may say a few more “ums” and “ahs” than usual, find it difficult to remember the exact phrase you wanted to utter and say the wrong word instead. The easy fix: Slow down as you speak and think about what you want to say before you say it. Not only will it help you get over this progesterone tongue tie-up, research shows that folks who speak slowly and pause actually appear smarter than their faster-paced peers.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope:  Trust hunches you get—those gut feelings will be more on target today. The reason? Research shows that, whether you realize it or not, as estrogen plunges, it makes you pick up on more details around you. So, when you get a feeling about making a certain decision, it’s really your subconscious putting all those details together, helping you choose the best path.
