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: If you haven’t taken a trip in a while, you may be suffering from a serious case of cabin fever as rising estrogen and testosterone urge you to go explore the world and have fun. Take time today to research some trip ideas. Looking forward to a getaway, even a short overnighter, is proven to boost your mood all the way till you leave!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Yesterday I was thisclose to buying chocolate raspberry wine. With a screw top. Then I saw this weird fruit with spiky things and was about to put that in my shopping cart. Then I remembered I’m not really a fruit person. And then my husband offered to make this really weird dish he concocted in his head, which didn’t sound all that awesome, but I encouraged him to do it anyway because I was curious how it would turn out. My point? You, too, will probably find yourself drawn to the extra odd as high estrogen and testosterone make you more adventurous than any other time of your cycle!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Your Facebook, cell phone and Twitter account all get a breather today as rising progesterone slows you down and makes you less motivated to post, text or tweet. This hormone also makes you an excellent sounding board for chatty folks who happen upon you since it’s got you feeling a bit on the quiet side, allowing them ample time to get in every minute detail of their story. And, if you’re not enjoying whatever they’re prattling on about, chances are they’ll never know since your stony progesterone face will help you conceal your irritation.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Plunging estrogen is making you a tad more judgmental today; you may be picky about what people are wearing, what they’re saying and what they’re doing. And here’s a funny little fact: A new study in the journal Psychological Science reveals that drinking something bitter, like coffee or dark beer, actually makes you even more judgmental! To avoid annoying folks around you, you may want to opt for sweet beverages today instead.
