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: You may be a flurry of planning, scheduling and organizing as rising estrogen amps up your desire to tackle projects and the start of a new year makes you ready to pounce on all your resolutions at once!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope:  If you’re single and looking, thoughts will turn to love (okay, or lust) today as high testosterone boosts libido, high estrogen has you positively giddy whenever you think about a potential mate and the new year renews your optimism about finding a special someone. Happily hitched? High hormones may prompt you to get out of a relationship rut and change things up a bit!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: With sedating progesterone on the rise, it could be difficult to muster the motivation to stick to any of the resolutions you picked for 2012. One trick researchers swear by: Take one teensy tiny step in the direction of the plan you want to follow, for instance, if you want to start a workout regimen, simply put on workout clothes; if you want to look for a new job, simply take a peek at an online job website like; if you want to start a diet, simply throw away any super-duper junk food, like chips or full-fat ice cream. Study after study shows that small acts like these can help propel you so you eventually make the big changes you want!

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may indulge in your favorite guilty pleasures today, like hours of reality TV, bowls of Doritos or a few mojitos. Blame for your wicked ways goes to plunging estrogen, which makes you more likely to turn to indulgent mood-boosting treats that threaten to totally blow every New Year’s resolution you had!
