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: As estrogen and testosterone rise today, ideas and plans you put aside may come popping into your head today. While these two hormones are giving you more oomph to tackle projects, they’re also making you a little distracted and eager to take on more than you can actually do.  So, your challenge will be focusing on and finishing just one or two tasks rather than starting a bunch and finishing none.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: With estrogen and testosterone reaching their cycle-long highs this week, they’re making you crave adventure and novelty. This makes hum-drum Monday routines oh-so very boring. As a result, you may impulsively change things up, for instance, by taking a long lunch to someplace fun, blowing off tasks early and heading to an amusement park or recruiting a pal to join you in some other fun activity.

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may find yourself saying “Awwwwww” a lot more today than in the first two weeks of your cycle. The reason? Rising progesterone. As this hormone climbs, it brings out your nurturing side, making you more ga-ga over cuddly animals and babies and more easily moved by sentimental acts.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Try to ignore negative messages you hear inside your head today, such as those suggesting you may not be good enough to date a certain someone, strong enough to make it through a tough time or capable enough to handle a project. These are simply the result of downward-spiraling estrogen and testosterone, which dampen confidence and optimism as they plunge. To bump up your self-assurance, try to remember all your strengths and accomplishments. Research shows this simple method can break a negative self-talk spiral and lift your spirits again!
