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: As estrogen revs your urge do more, but has you bored with the to-dos already on your list, you may get the urge to organize something new, like a neighborhood crime watch, a knitting group, a closet system that makes it easier to find the clothes you need or a kitchen system that makes it simpler for you to cook.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: It may be harder to keep secrets today as high estrogen and testosterone have you just itching to gab about seriously juicy stuff! Can’t tell anyone you know, but gotta get it out? Write it down on a postcard or in an email and send it to PostSecret, which airs dirty laundry anonymously.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Don’t blame your mate or your toy for your lackluster orgasms today. Rising progesterone is a hormone that dampens libido, makes it more difficult to reach orgasm and makes any your climaxes you do reach less intense. Luckily, kissing, cuddling and all-over body massages still feel utterly heavenly.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Problems may seem more overwhelming and difficult to solve today as plunging estrogen brings down confidence-building serotonin. Before giving up or caving in, try talking with a friend or family member who is known for their listening and advice skills. Can’t figure out which is the best person to lean on? Listen to the sound of their voice. A recent study in the journal PLoS ONE reveals that folks who speak in a melodic sing-song way tend to be better listeners and more empathetic than those who sound more monotone.
