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: Week 1 of your cycle is traditionally a time of new beginnings. That’s because rising estrogen and testosterone boost energy, sharpen brain skills and amp up motivation. And these wonderful effects get stronger all the way through the end of Week 2. This makes it a perfect time to do research, make phone calls, get supplies and do anything else that can help you launch a new project!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may be toying with the idea of taking on a leadership role, for instance, by running for some kind of office, volunteering to head up a project or forming a social group. Why? Rising testosterone boosts your desire to be top dog and gives you confidence that you can call the shots!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll be hungry more frequently today thanks to rising progesterone, which wants you to eat, eat, eat in case your egg got fertilized during ovulation and you now have another mouth to feed. If you’re worried about your waistline, but want to avoid the hunger grumpies that come from ignoring stomach pangs, simply switch from three big meals to four or five smaller ones spaced throughout the day. You’ll quiet tummy growls without adding any more calories to your daily diet.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may be tempted to take something someone says or does a bit too seriously today. The reason? Plunging estrogen is depleting your brain of feel-good endorphins and other chemicals that boost your mood and sense of humor.
