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’ve got a secret crush on your mind (and not the one your BFF knows about either!) today. That’s because testosterone is on the rise and this lusty hormone fuels sexual thoughts, fantasies and the desire to be a little naughty!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Today has the potential to be one of those “What were you thinking?” days. You may email someone who your friends and family say you should stay away from, buy something that’s way out of your budget, say something that is impossible to take back or do a daredevil maneuver that could seriously lead to injury. Blame goes to high testosterone, which makes you impulsive, and high estrogen, which lifts your optimism, making you blind to the consequences!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Unfair, but true: Today’s rising progesterone makes you hungrier and lazier. It’s not a hateful hormone; it’s just trying to fatten you up and slow you down in case you got pregnant during ovulation (it won’t get the memo whether or not you got preggers till Week 4 starts). If you want to thwart progesterone’s pound-piling influence, try filling up on fruits, veggies and grains (you know, the healthy stuff), sipping lots of water (to fake out a fill-up) and pushing yourself to get up off the couch and exercise (once you get moving, you’ll likely enjoy the activity).
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: If Week 2 is all about “What were you thinking?”, Week 4 is about “Why am I still doing this?”. Plunging estrogen and testosterone are making you wonder why you’re still in a job, relationship or rut you don’t like and why you haven’t made changes to get the heck out of it yet. Avoid spiraling into a funk about it by planning, then taking a first step toward making the change you want.
