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: Rising estrogen and testosterone amp up your energy and optimism, making it easier to get swept up in exciting ideas, peppy people and passionate requests. As a result, you may give up more of your time and/or money than you intended, for instance, by pledging a monthly contribution to a Greenpeace volunteer, agreeing to organize a community fundraiser or spending more than you planned on a new purchase.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: During the first two weeks of your cycle, you’re more likely to transform problems and unexpected snags into challenges you can totally overcome. That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are giving you the oomph and confidence to power through any sudden deadline and reconfigure plans to accommodate last-minute changes.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Rising progesterone is doing the food ordering today. And what it wants is fatty, sweet and salty treats. On a diet? Then indulge your palate in creamy low-fat yogurt with fresh fruit, a gooey low-fat cheesy burrito, crunchy low-fat granola or all-natural sorbet. You’ll satisfy your cravings while avoiding lots of fat and extra calories.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll probably find it harder to recall details today. That’s plunging estrogen’s fault. As it descends, it makes it harder to remember facts you knew so well during the first two weeks of your cycle when this hormone was rising.
