Which week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Have a great idea you want to act on right away, for instance, breaking out in song in the middle of a job interview to be more memorable to the recruiter or throwing a lit firecracker to get a hottie’s attention? Better watch out! What could seem like a a fail-proof plan could really be a super-bad one! Why? As estrogen and testosterone rise today, they amp up your optimism, which can make it easy to overlook major faults in your scheme. Before pushing ahead, try asking friends their opinion of your idea. You could end up saving yourself a lot of time, money and hassle.
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!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Cue the waterworks: You may end up shedding a few tears over sad stories, shocking news or even happy events. Blame goes to lower levels of estrogen and rising progesterone, a combination that has you channeling your touch-feely side.
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 an easy way to let off steam, making you feel better instantly.
