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: You may be thinking of a gift to give a friend, family member or neighbor, such as homemade brownies, a fun toy that caught your eye in a store or even what you might get them for Christmas. Loved ones can credit estrogen for your gift-giving spirit. As this hormone rises, it gives you the urge to connect with others and make them happy! (Now that I’ve told you what your day will be like, want to see mine? I’m writing a new blog detailing how I live my life according to Hormonology at facebook.com/mylifeinhormonology. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder where you put your house keys: Pretty much what happens after one too many Chardonnays.)

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You’ve got a need for speed today as high estrogen and testosterone make you faster at everything you do: speaking, walking, even driving (careful, Leadfoot!). And if other folks aren’t walking, talking or driving at your speed, you can get irritable or impatient. (Now that I’ve told you what your day will be like, want to see mine? I’m writing a new blog detailing how I live my life according to Hormonology at facebook.com/mylifeinhormonology. It’ll be funny, sad, quirky, totally unbelievable: Basically a Bridget Jones movie, but with hormones.)

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Intense feelings you have for a secret crush may have suddenly cooled today. What went wrong with the person who once made your heart go pitter-patter? Well, chances are, nothing changed with the object of your affection. Rather, rising progesterone and lower levels of testosterone are putting the kibosh on your sex drive, so hooking up isn’t on the top of your to-do list. Plus, lower levels of estrogen are making you see the faults in your sweetie that high estrogen had you overlooking during the first half of your cycle, making your crush seem a bit less perfect than you remember. (Now that I’ve told you what your day will be like, want to see mine? I’m writing a new blog detailing how I live my life according to Hormonology at facebook.com/mylifeinhormonology.  It’ll bring a smile to your lips, a tear to your eye and twitch to your face. You know, the kind of response you have when someone tells you they just ate the last chocolate-covered Oreo.)

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Yesterday I mentioned that you have a more critical eye toward what other folks do and say. Today, I’ll point out that you may also think that others are viewing you more critically, too, even if they aren’t. The problem is plunging estrogen and testosterone: As they descend, they take away your confidence and dampen your mood. This can make you feel less sure of yourself and suspicious of others, a combination that can make even the most innocent glance in your direction seem like an evil-eye stare. (Now that I’ve told you what your day will be like, want to see mine? I’m writing a new blog detailing how I live my life according to Hormonology at facebook.com/mylifeinhormonology. It’ll make you erupt in laughter, then in tears, then in curses aimed at your TV: You know, the same response you have to just about anything in premenstrual Week 4.)
