My HormonologyWhich week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:

Week 1
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Rising estrogen and testosterone amp up your desire for new experiences, which may make you easily bored today. As a result, you may add new tunes to your mp3 player, drive a different route than you usually do, go to a new nightclub or do something else that satisfies your restlessness.  

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Thanks to confidence- and energy-boosting high estrogen and testosterone, home, work, school and other projects seem totally doable today no matter how large these undertakings really are. Try to avoid biting off more than you can chew or you’ll be up all night trying to finish the task. And, for goodness sakes, try to avoid starting a humungous project that can’t get finished during your Week 2 since Week 3 energy-sapping progesterone will make it even harder to wrap things up!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You have the opposite problem of Week 2 gals today: Due to momentum-gobbling progesterone, projects may seem bigger than they really are, which makes you less likely to take on a new to-do. Instead of giving in to the urge to couch potato all week, try cutting  up projects into small, achievable steps. Once you start, chances are,  you’ll gain the motivation to continue!

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You might take a joke or off-the-cuff remark someone makes as a personal insult today. That’s because plunging estrogen and testosterone are making a you tad more self-conscious as they lower brain chemicals responsible for confidence. But, truth is, most people are too busy with their own lives and day-to-day worries to think about ways to get your goat. So, unless it’s someone known for being a real pest, chalk up their comment to simple boneheadedness and let it slide.
