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: You may feel like flirting with a secret crush, taking steps to find a new love or spicing up the heat in your current relationship. As testosterone rises today, it sparks your libido. And today’s rising estrogen is making you want to put romance on the front burner.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: A word of warning: You can end up stepping uncomfortably close into people’s personal spaces and keeping them talking long after they’ve wanted to be let go. The reason? High estrogen and testoterone are making you want to connect, chat, touch and flirt. And, in your high-hormone excitement, you may not realize that the other person you’re talking with may be in a lower-hormoned non-social mood or simply not as naturally gregarious as you.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Progesterone is bringing out your nurturing side. As a result, you may feel like you’re more in tune with other people’s emotions and can pick up on subtle voice or body language cues that reveal their true feelings.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Be careful when hanging around irritable or sarcastic people today. Plunging estrogen and testosterone are already tipping you more toward a negative mood, and research shows that the pessimistic attitude of others is actually contagious. And that can end up making your mood turn foul as well.
