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: You have a secret crush on your mind today, and it’s not the one you told your BFF about, either! Rising estrogen and testosterone are making you feel a tad naughty and flirtatious, a combination that can delight new potential mates and confound current ones!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Dare to start something new today, such as a novel, music album, clothing line, pottery business or whatever it is you love. Week 2 is about big dreams and putting them into action. That’s because you have high estrogen and testosterone energy and optimism egging you on. These cheerleading hormones don’t get any higher than they do in this week, so if you miss your opportunity to harness all that hormonal rah-rah-rah, you’ll have to wait again till next month to do it!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may feel an unmistakable pull toward cookies, cheese covered French fries, ice cream, potato chips and other high-fat, high-calorie goodies. Blame goes squarely on rising progesterone. This hormone, which starts to rise at the onset of Week 3, is prompting you to stuff your face with as many calories as possible in case you got pregnant during ovulation and are, therefore, eating for two. It won’t get the memo that you don’t have a bun in the oven till Week 4, so the only defense is resisting the urge to splurge or indulging in small doses to satisfy cravings.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Keep a close eye on your keys, purse, lunch and other important items today. There’s a good chance you could misplace them as plunging estrogen and testosterone fog up your brain and put a damper on your short-term memory.
