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: As rising estrogen boosts your desire for fun, you’ll find yourself more drawn toward silly items today, like doughnuts in the shape of bows, gingerbread cookie-scented body scrub or hats with cat ears sew on them!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You’re more likely to jump at opportunities, spur of the moment invites and killer sales you happen to pass by. That’s because high estrogen is making you easily excited and high testosterone is making you more impulsive than during any other week of your cycle!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You’ll be kicking yourself when someone says something snarky to you and you don’t think up a witty comeback. Or worse, you think of a good comeback only after the other person has walked away. Blame for the missed opportunity for a good burn goes to rising progesterone, which slows down your thinking skills, hampers verbal ability and quashes recall. But, not to worry: By your premenstrual Week 4, a rise in feisty noradrenaline will kickstart your brain skills just when you need them to verbally rip someone to shreds!
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: If you’re not sure if you’ve transitioned from Week 3 to Week 4, here’s one clue to look for: A rising libido. While rising progesterone in Week 3 pretty much puts your sex drive to sleep, things heat up once again in Week 4 as your body prepares for menstruation and, as a wonderful side effect, stimulates nerve endings down below!
