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: Take out all those dog-eared pages of crafts magazines and open up all your saved craft web pages for cool projects you hoped you’d get to one day. Rising estrogen is putting you in the mood for silly fun and it’s making you more likely to go easy on yourself if you don’t master the project perfectly.

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: High estrogen and testosterone put you in an extroverted kind of mood that makes you want to leave your mark on the world, even in a small way, such as posting more frequently on Facebook, leaving reviews on shopping websites or starting a blog!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Sad news or negative events may make you weepier or more upset today than you would have been about it during the first half of your cycle. Why? Lower levels of estrogen and rising progesterone are amping up your emotional side and making your more likely to empathize with others.

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: Chances are, you’re going to be more critical of someone’s work performance, attitude or even their hairstyle today. Plunging estrogen lowers feel-good chemicals in your brain, which makes you less likely to let someone’s foibles slide.
