My HormonologyHappy St. Patrick’s Day!
What makes the week
you’re on in your cycle so lucky?

Week 1
First day of period to Day 7
What makes Week 1 lucky: For starters, tonight’s sleep will be deeper and more restful than last week thanks to rising estrogen, which puts the kibosh on premenstrual insomnia. Plus, rising estrogen and testosterone are boosting your mood and brain skills…and these effects last all the way through Week 2!

Week 2
Day 8 to Day 13
What makes Week 2 lucky: High testosterone gives you a killer libido and, thankfully, killer orgasms to match. These hormones also make you more energetic and daring than any other week of your cycle!

Week 3
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
What makes Week 3 lucky: Rising progesterone gives you a mellowness that makes you the calm in any storm. Another perk of progesterone: It helps your body burn up to 30% more fat during exercise this week and most of next week, too!

Week 4
Day 23 to the end of cycle
What makes Week 4 lucky: Think you have it all bad during your premenstrual phase? Not so! Some experts believe your powers of intuition sharpen and you become more in touch with your artistic side this week. And, research shows that a dour premenstrual mood actually makes you better at spotting details and less likely to fall prey to sneaky sales traps since you notice more than someone who’s got their head in the clouds!
