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: Careful! You’re more likely to overindulge in alcohol, food, cigarettes and anything else that gives you pleasure, but could be bad for you. The reason? As estrogen climbs, it gives your brain a bigger buzz from fun yet naughty stuff, so once you start partaking, it can be hard to stop.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may get the urge to play a practical joke on a coworker, tease a friend or forward a joke email to a family member. Credit for your inner jokester goes to estrogen, which sharpens your sense of humor as it rises toward its peak.

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Last week, high testosterone had you more comfortable leading the pack. This week, lower levels of testosterone plus rising progesterone make you more comfortable being a team player. Others will appreciate your willingness to hear their opinions and share the credit for a job well done.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: When you make plans this weekend, try to prepare ahead of time so they don’t fall through. Plunging estrogen can make you a bit cranky or disappointed when things don’t go as you expect. So, buy movie tickets ahead of time, make a restaurant reservation even if you don’t think you’ll need one and check store hours so you’re not surprised when it’s not open.
