My Hormonology

Which week are you on in your cycle?

Week 1
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Thanks to rising estrogen, you’re in a jovial mood, which has you wanting to make more jokes and even pull pranks on friends, like taping the sink’s spray nozzle so it shoots the next person who turns on the tap or hiding in a closet and springing out at the last minute. And while friends may balk at being shocked, truth is, research shows that harmless practical jokes actually make people feel closer to you!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may feel like you’re due for a lucky break today as high estrogen ramps up optimistic feelings. As a result, you may buy a lottery ticket, take a chance on asking out a secret crush or enter yourself into a competition!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Eat or nap ? Eat or nap? Eat or nap? Thanks to rising progesterone, which ratchets up hunger and fatigue, this question is probably going to pop up quite a lot today. 

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Plunging estrogen is making you more self-reflective and emotional. As a result, you may get concerned as you ponder where you’re life is headed, feel pangs of regret over missed opportunities or even be filled with gratitude for good fortune you’ve experienced.
