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: As estrogen rises, your mind is buzzing with new ideas. For instance, you may be thinking of ways to make extra income, redecorate your home, plant a new garden, go back to school or even simply find a new place for lunch.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may not want to take orders from others today and prefer to be the one doing the bossing around. That’s testosterone’s influence. As it climbs, it brings out your inner leader by upping your confidence, independence and desire for power!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: During the first half of your cycle, rising estrogen and testosterone have you curious about the world around you. As they reach lower levels during the second half of your cycle, your curiosity turns inward. As a result, you may question why you feel a certain way about an issue, wonder how you can better motivate yourself to reach a goal or study other aspects of your personality a little more closely.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Cue the F-bombs: Plunging estrogen and testosterone are making you more prone to letting your feelings fly. And during this premenstrual week, those feelings are often ones of irritation and impatience, for instance, when someone cuts you off in traffic, a coworker mucks up an important project or the fax machine jams for the gazillionth time. The good news? Swearing is actually good for you! Research shows it temporarily reduces pain and also gives you a way to let off steam, making you feel better instantly!
