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: Here’s the deal with rising estrogen: While it boosts brain chemicals that put you in a good mood, this doesn’t mean you’re going to be grinning from ear to ear all day and laughing in the face of all that life throws at you. If bad stuff happens—for instance, you stub your toe, get hit with an unexpected bank fee or your significant other still hasn’t figured out that smelly socks go in the hamper, not on your side of the bed—then naturally annoyed feelings will arise. However, rising estrogen will help you bounce back from these irritations faster than if you were in the second half of your cycle when plunging estrogen makes negative feelings linger a little longer.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Good luck trying to avoid thinking about sex today. High testosterone is ratcheting up your libido to a fever pitch, making everyone you see and everything you do remind you of climbing between the sheets. And, if you can, definitely pencil in time for some hedonistic fun either with a partner or alone. High testosterone is making orgasms more intense and longer-lasting than any other week of your cycle!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Eat or nap ? Eat or nap? Eat or nap? Thanks to rising progesterone, which ratchets up hunger and fatigue, this question is probably going to pop up quite a lot today.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Plunging estrogen is making you more self-reflective and emotional. As a result, you may get concerned as you ponder where you’re life is headed, feel pangs of regret over missed opportunities or even be filled with gratitude for good fortune you’ve experienced.
