Which week are you on in your cycle?
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: This weekend, low-but-rising estrogen has you wanting to recreate the kind of fun you had as a kid in summer. Okay, maybe not by making mud pies and playing with worms. But, you will be drawn to boardwalks, ice cream shops, barbecues and other familiar amusements.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: High estrogen and testosterone have you craving summer excitement this weekend. So, take time to ride a rollercoaster, head to a dance club, flirt at a carnival or do anything else that gives you a thrill!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: The lazy, hazy days of summer were made for rising progesterone gals. You’re in the mood to hang out by the pool, lay out on the beach, chill in a movie theater, graze at your favorite comfort food cafe or do other activities that require little energy and are within arm’s reach of many delicious snacks and beverages.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Week 4 gals can ward off a premenstrual bad mood triggered by plunging estrogen and testosterone by buying yourself a treat at one of the many farmer’s markets, craft fairs, art shows and summer sales going on this weekend!
