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 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.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You may get bold enough to reveal a secret today, for instance, that you have a crush on someone, you’re planning to quit your job or that you signed up for a singing competition. That’s because as estrogen and testosterone rise, they amp up your confidence and desire to chat, which makes you more likely to bring up topics you were formerly hush-hush about.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: A funny thing happens to your love life today: During the first half of your cycle, rising estrogen had you drawn toward confident, athletic hotties with chiseled jawlines and a gruff attitude. However, the second half of your cycle is a whole different story. Lower levels of estrogen have you preferring sensitive, self-effacing sweeties who pride themselves on their ability to bake, garden and attend every comic-con ever.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Going someplace crowded, noisy, stuffy or smelly? Try stashing something in your purse or travel mug that’s sure to soothe you. Plunging estrogen is making you more sensitive to annoyances, so having your favorite chai latte, comic book, candy or other indulgence will make the experience easier.
