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’re more willing to drop a grudge you’d been holding onto against a friend, restaurant, store, coworker or someone else who irritated you. Folks who wronged you can thank estrogen for the free pass. As this hormone rises, it makes you more optimistic that things can turn out better than the last time, making you open to giving them a second chance.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll likely be going out of your way to add some excitement to your day, such as eating spicier foods than you normally do, driving faster than the speed limit, flirting with a total stranger or spending way more money than you should. The reason? Estrogen and testosterone reach their highest levels this week, and these hormones are making your brain buzz with even more with feel-good chemicals when you do something a little naughty, unusual or out of character!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: It could be hard to muster motivation to work, clean, cook or do the simplest tasks today. Blame goes squarely on rising progesterone, which saps your pep and makes it nearly impossible to get up off the couch once you’ve sat down.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may feel a tad clumsy today—for instance, bumping into walls, missing door handles or tripping over your own feet. The reason? Plunging estrogen and testosterone are making you less coordinated and able to navigate the space around you. So tread carefully!
