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: It’s easy to get bored today as rising fun-loving estrogen is like your junior year dorm-mate urging you to skip class and go skinny-dipping and beer bonging instead. As a result, you may find it harder to focus and will probably get distracted by celebrity gossip websites, computer games and any offers of 2-for-1 drink specials within a 5-mile radius.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Wave bye-bye to your cash today. High estrogen and testosterone are turning you into a spending machine by making you impulsive and upping your confidence that you can somehow, someday cover the bill. Even when you want to save, you’ll probably end up splurging on a special treat for yourself, opting for a pricier model of a product or getting tipsy and seriously abusing your iTunes account.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Last week, you were pining over a super-cutie. This week, you’re feeling a bit more ho-hum about your target of affection. Why the flagging feelings? Lower levels of estrogen and testosterone along with rising progesterone combine to dampen your libido and reduce brain chemicals that ignited your passion.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may be tempted to jump to negative conclusions or think the worst about situations today. That’s because, as estrogen and testosterone plunge, they make you less optimistic and confident by lowering your brain’s level of feel-good chemicals. So, before you get your stomach tied in knots because you’re sure you’re losing your job, your house, your sweetie or your cat, take a deep breath and remember that your hormones are making things appear worse than they really are and, chances are, the outcome could be positive, too.
