Which week are you on in your cycle?
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Rising estrogen is making you more concerned about how other people see you. As a result, you may spend more time picking out an outfit, buy a teeth whitening kit, try a new hairstyle or improve your appearance in another way.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may notice that you’re remembering words and details more easily, you’re typing more accurately, you’re even seeing, smelling, hearing and tasting more sharply. Credit for all the fine tuning comes courtesy of rising estrogen and testosterone, which improve your body and brain as they climb.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: During Week 1 and Week 2 of your cycle, rising estrogen and testosterone had you curious about the world around you. As they reach lower levels this week, your curiosity turns inward. As a result, today 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.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: As estrogen and testosterone plunge this week, it’s like someone takes off your protective shell, making you more emotionally and physically sensitive to your environment. For instance, you may feel a tad maudlin if it rains, on edge if it’s noisy or chilled to the bone if the temperature dips.
