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’ll enjoy getting ready for work, school or an event today as rising estrogen makes it a bit more fun to get dressed, do your hair and make yourself utterly adorable.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Be on the lookout for sudden bouts of euphoria. High estrogen and testosterone are pumping your brain full of feel-good chemicals, so you may feel a tremendous surge of happiness, love, gratitude or another positive emotion out of the blue. Enjoy it when it hits—it won’t last for long and it’s far less likely to pop up in any other week of your cycle.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You’re more prone to watching your spending and cutting back where you can, for instance, you may skip an appetizer at a restaurant or avoid putting unecessary items in your shopping cart. The reason? Lower levels of estrogen and testosterone combined with rising progesterone make you more concerned about your financial picture.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: If you feel snappish, try eating or napping. Research shows that hunger and fatigue during Week 4 worsens premenstrual irritability. And when you take care of those issues, your mood levels out!
